Label: Western Vinyl
2011年に他界したサウンドアートの巨匠Rolf Juliusによる、米Western Vinylからのシリーズ作品[Small Music]第三弾。なんと言っても聴きどころはインスタレーション音源を元にした一曲目54分の大作[Raining]で、爆音の雨風ノイズが吹き荒ぶ激激高内容。
Raining is the third installment in the small music series and the first posthumous Rolf Julius release. The title piece â€œRainingâ€ originally appeared as part of the 2007 installation â€œDrawing (Dot)." When played at a high volume the piece engulfs the listener in a dense world of rain, wind rattled trees, and soaked pastures full of life. However, when played through the small flat speaker Julius chose for the installation, the sounds become soft and cyclical patterns, like a lush landscape viewed from a plane miles above. The second piece â€œWeitflÃ¤chigâ€ is an example of what Julius called â€œMusik fÃ¼r eine weite Ebeneâ€ (Music for a Wide Plain) - using small sounds to create vast landscapes of sound. â€œMusic for a Glimpse Inwardâ€ originally appeared in a 2005 installation. With small speakers placed along the edge of very large empty room, the music played softly, heightening the listener's perception of space and emptiness.
