イタリアのサウンドアートレーベル901 Editionsより出版された、デンマークはコペンハーゲンを拠点とする作曲家&パフォーマーのカルテットEnsemble Ektosの1stアルバム。数種のサックスとパーカッション、エレキギターを使い全22パートからなる静謐なミニマル音源を制作、それらを全て約2分の録音として纏め上げ、演奏~沈黙、演奏~沈黙というパターンをひたすら繰り返す、もはやアルバム全体がスケールのデカいミニマルミュージックの様相。厳粛でありながらもユニークな想像力が凝縮された大推薦タイトル。毎度の如くパッケージデザインも美しい。

"The Septuagint is the name in which the first Greek translation of the Old Testament is identified, datable to the 2nd century A.D. According to Aristea's letter to Philocrates, in which the genesis of this version is mentioned, 72 sages from Alexandria commissioned by Ptolemy II were responsible for the translation. Within the text, the term "prodigy" (τέρας, tearas) is never found alone but forms an inseparable binomial with "sign" (σημεῖον, semèion), thus forming the expression σημεῖα καὶ τέρατα (semèia kài tearata).

Recorded in September 2019, Semèia Kài Térata is the first work by Ensemble Ektòs, a quartet of composers and performers based in Copenhagen. The work describes an austere yet imaginative path combining stillness with the use of silences. A ritual reiteration recalling the most extreme experiences of certain minimalism and microscopic attention to timbral stratification. Rigorous and evocative, with radical attention to the beauty of the whole sound set, Semèia Kài Térata well manages to identify that sense of mysterious inevitability evoked in the title, as well as the dark wonder that miracles often bear."
