個人的大推薦作家!!以前当店にてFrancisco Lopezがマスタリングを担当した2CD[Sonic Phantoms]を紹介した、Anne Gillisを更に絞り込んだ様なミニマムスタイルにて、主に音声と環境を使い激シブの反復音響を作り出すアイルランドの女性ビジュアルアーティストBarbara Ellison。本作はオランダUnsoundsから発表された2021年アルバム[Cybersongs]。驚くべき可聴現象を引き起こす"声"による催眠テクスチャーが13曲に渡り繰り広げられ、時にポップなリズムに、また時には甘美なメロディにすら変容してしまう凄まじい境地。これは一度是非体感して頂きたい世界観です。

CyberSongs is a 'transhuman song cycle for human-like computer voices' by composer/artist Barbara Ellison. She delves in this work into the sonic intricacies of voice avatars and the ‘musicalisation’ of TTS (Text-to-speech), a type of speech synthesis application that is used to create a spoken sound version of raw text in a computer document. In the 13 tracks of this album, she creates hypnotic textures of vocal utterances through the intensive and extensive use of repetition, as tools and materials to give rise to surprising audible phenomena of a fascinating and odd musicality. Words, morphemes, phonemes, phrases and speech particles acquire constantly-shifting new aural meanings, turning into the rhythmic, melodic and harmonic patterns of the obsessively phantasmatic trans-human song cycle of the ‘CyberSongs’. Unlimited by the speed of articulation, in a range of different languages, these ‘beyond human’ possibilities feature and embrace glitches and artifacts that are a result of a process of pushing the limits of the technology. These voices are finally set within an electronic sound environment, with references to real-world instruments, that can be described as having an off-kilter jazz or pop aesthetic.
