価格: 3,157円(税込)
Label: Staubgold

現在は重鎮の仲間入りを果たしたイタリアのGiuseppe Ielasiと共作を発表、また彼のレーベルSenufo Editionsからソロ音源もリリースしている、ソビエト連邦出身、現在はドイツのベルリンより音楽を発信しているサウンドコラージュの天才Andrew Pekler。2005年Staubgoldより発表した初期のソロ作[Strings + Feedback]。現行のスタイルとは異なるエレクトロニクス&音響作品ですが、音の配置及びリズムの感覚はやはりこの頃から非常に素晴らしい。未体験の方は是非。









The ten tracks on this new album embark on an excursion into the direct vicinity of sounds and into the inner life of the mixing desk. It is here where sounds are organized, where they all must pass through, that Pekler develops his breathtaking signal flow. Calm and patient he opens up the material from the inside and self-confidently develops a music consisting of only very few essential elements.

"Strings and Feedback": Very lucid and rough. Inside his mixing console, Pekler confronts a few strings and piano samples (taken mostly from Morton Feldman's work in the 1950s) with themselves, forcing unpredictable encounters, intensification and distortion. He inaugurates an interplay of reminiscences and unreliable fragments of a chapter in the history of music which lies behind us. If Pekler on his previous albums appeared as a minute observer who knows how to describe even the most delicate atmospheric conditions through music, then on "Strings and Feedback" he has become an intermediary between sound worlds.

Similar to the imaginary circuit diagram on the album's cover, Pekler's pieces leave the safe and beaten tracks on which most specialists tread and instead create open-ended and yet to be discovered paths which cannot be described through the logic of a manual. It may be unintentional that the cover design is reminiscent of the 1960s situationist's visionary city maps, but it matches Pekler's approach to create a new topography by re-organizing existing sound material.

On "Strings And Feedback", Andrew Pekler brings into being an impressive music which manages to convince the listener not despite its renunciation of compositional variety, but because of it. Or, in the words of Yoko Ono: Draw a map and get lost.
