価格: 3,927円(税込)
Label: CORTIZONA - CORTIZONA013

素晴らしい音楽性!!大大大推薦!!ベルギーを拠点とする女性コントラバス奏者/マルチインストゥルメンタリストAnn Eysermansが作り上げた、ディーゼル機関車の走行音とハープ演奏をミックスした超高内容エレクトロアコースティック作!!なんと本作がデビュータイトルという無名の?人物であり、幼少期の頃に列車に乗った体験をそのまま音像化したという「4台のディーゼル機関車とハープのためのプレリュード/フーガ」という非常に興味深い楽曲を披露。蒸気エンジンの繊細な振動、雑音と化した駆動音と共にメランコリックなハープが揺蕩う、まさにパーソナルな経験より抽出された素晴らし過ぎるサウンドイメージが続きます。Chris Watsonのオーケストレーションされたフィールドレコーディングにも通じる超傑作。2枚のインサートが付属。







LP including two inserts. On her debut album Belgian-based multi-instrumentalist Ann Eysermans explores the possibilities of the train as a music instrument: a deep quest into a fascinating and mesmerising world.

On her debut album Belgian-based multi-instrumentalist Ann Eysermans explores the possibilities of the train as a music instrument: a deep quest into a fascinating and mesmerising world, which started as a five year old kid, when she climbed on board of the train helm station during a trip from Antwerp to Ostend.

For the compositions 'Prelude and Fuga For Four Diesel Locomotives And Harp' Eysermans had the chance to capture the sounds of diesel locomotives (HD 51, 54, 55 and 60) of the Belgian Train World Heritage collection. Microscopic hissing vibrations of steaming engines slowly entwine and resonate with fragile harp playing, getting on track for an unconventional sonic rail journey. A melancholic odyssey of sound in motion: Ann Eysermans let the sparkling harp notes dissolve into the tones of pulsating train wheels.

On the B-side she bends her soft singing voice around deranged horn melodies in 'Le Départ', connect delayed organ harmonies in 'De Vertraging' with the dying frequencies of a trembling and humming locomotive from the 60's, On the key track 'For Trainspotters Only' Ann Eysermans assembles a hauntingly piece of musique concrete with clanging chimes, broken music boxes, ghostly whispers and throbbing machine room sounds. A lonely barking dog and the last train announcement on a desolate platform in 'Chorale' also mark the last part of this spellbinding record.

On 'For Trainspotters Only' Ann Eysermans takes you on an immersive and meandering ride, connecting the dots between the free spirit of Alice Coltrane, the orchestrated field recording compositions of Chris Watson and the magic realism of Claire Rousay.

For Trainspotters Only by Ann Eysermans is a co-production between Cortizona, ChampdAction and EUROPALIA, in collaboration with NMBS.
