2019年に同Another TimbreよりApartment Houseの一員である女性バイオリニストMira Benjaminとの共作を発表していた、英コンポーザーにしてコンダクターのJames Weeks。自分の持つ詩的アイデア、様々な楽器の組み合わせ方法、また各音素材についての考え方を拡張する表現として書き上げた5つの室内楽作品。タイトル通り"夏"をイメージしたという楽曲であり、演奏は9名からなるアンサンブルExplore Ensembleが担当。パーカッション、ハープ、ピアノ、バオリン、フルートのミニマルな響きが美しいハーモニーのレイヤーとなって漂います。





5 chamber works by James Weeks, beautifully performed by Explore Ensemble. An album of interlinked pieces that form a sequence. James Weeks says "I was aware of tying the pieces together as a set, by continuing and extending certain poetic ideas, ways of using and combining instruments, and ways of thinking about material....Things like the use of mixed instrumental duos, which comes from Violet-Violute, the use of a slow-moving or static background harmonic layer, which comes from Summer, the overall very soft and intimate instrumental idiom based on long, breath-length sounds, which appears in all the pieces other than Durham. And finally of course the poetic idea of a piece as opening up an imaginary (or remembered) space: music which unfolds as an area or a field, for the listener to wander in without having to follow a complex series of narrative events."
