Throne Heap、Mazurka Editions、Archivio Diafònico、Angst、Vienna Pressという、極小出版の良質カセットレーベルに素晴らしい音源を残して来た、ここNew Forcesの主宰者であるStefan AuneのソロプロジェクトKjostad。清涼なフィールドレコーディングとミニマルなノイズをミックスした雑音サウンドスケープを得意とする人物で、本作は7年の活動の中でも最高峰の仕上がりという2021年新作ソロ[Warlord]。自然の風景に「ドスッ...ドスッ...」という生々しいテクスチャーのノイズループを落とし込んでいく2トラック目[Split Hand]の完成度が特に凄まじい。やはり大推薦の作家。





Warlord is the latest full-length album from Kjostad, the follow up to last year's Extinctionist released on Chondritic Sound. This is the evolution of Kjostad's approach in every aspect, an attempt to distill 7 years of development into the project's finest work yet. The place-based field recordings are more intimate. The environmental explorations are more harrowing. Hissing tape loops collide with pulsing electronics. The noise clatters, clangs, and grinds across six tracks that investigate a violent past while anticipating an even darker future. Warlord sounds like shallow graves on the forest floor; like cold air on a cloudless night; like thousands of years of geological cruelty distilled into brief moments. The album builds to a climax that is either hopeful or bleak, depending on the individual listener's experience. Warlord is a soundtrack to world's end, and to world's beginning.
