Label: Notice Recordings
活動及びリリースも好調な英国在住の音楽家 赤間涼子 氏、毎度興味深いアプローチが楽しみなカナダの女性サウンドアーティストAnne-Françoise Jacques、両者が行った2018年冬の米国ツアーパフォーマンス記録。囁くような音を発するチープな仕掛けっぽい電子機器、奇妙なリズムとサウンドを生み出す不安定なデバイス、余計な説明は不要な流動的な面白録音。パフォーマンスに使用された2つのオブジェのフォトが付属。
This collaboration between Notice alumna Ryoko Akama (NTR036) and Québécois sound artist Anne-F Jacques manages to be both minimal and teeming with activity. Recorded during their winter 2018 U.S. tour, (here presenting stops in NYC at Phill Niblock’s Experimental Intermedia, and Boston’s Vernon Street Studios), these recordings feature occasional action-gestures over a whisper-bed of electronics, activated objects, along with Jacques' "contraptions and erratic devices" (a stated interest), which interject a variety of odd rhythms and sounds. When performing live, Akama and Jacques move fluidly across the room, stopping at various “object stations”, engaged with playful intensity. Patiently exploratory and hinting at a domesticity, these are wonderfully restrained performances; they project a pleasantness that results from the performers' masterful focus and choices.
Comes with two high gloss photos of the objects used during Ryoko and Anne-F's performance.
