ベルギーの実験レーベルCortizonaが2021年5月リリース最新作を本邦初入荷しました。

本作は、過去にsilent waterなどから発表しているベルギーの実験作家Pak Yan Lauの最新レコードです。ゴングによるミニマリズム作品。インサート、DLコード付属。

More hands. More possibilities. More ethereal drones. More poly shifting rhythms. More fun.

That was the starting point and the idea of ‘Bakunawa’: the album Pak Yan Lau recorded with her freshly started ensemble, consisting of the marvellous musicians Vera Cavallin, Giovanni Di Domenico, João Lobo and Mathieu Calleja.            

On ‘Bakunawa’ Pak Yan and her ensemble are delving and digging deep into the sound spectrum of detuned toy piano’s, second hand gong rods, prepared harp, metal tubes and ring modulators. Instruments were searched, collected and bought worldwide: on Japanese street markets, in second hand stores in Brussels, from dedicated American Ebay-sellers and the cellar of the Musica centre in Neerpelt. 

The result is a record split up in two compositions of 20 minutes: on part I the Bakunawa ensemble let the overtones of the gong rods, prepared harp and metal tubes slowly resonate into a deep listening ambient state of mind. Rich harmonic textures of rather unconventional instruments shaping an immersive piece of spellbinding sonic details.       

On Part II the quintet craft their own ritual ceremony music with distorted toy piano’s and hypnotic percussion. Echoing the frequencies of a gamelan orchestra. Rhythms shifting in haunted patterns recalling the Philippine mythology where the moon swallowing sea dragon Bakunawa was scared away by drumming loudly on pots and pans.

Pak Yan Lau (composition, gong rods, toy piano, metal tubes, ring modulators)

Vera Cavallin (gong rods, prepared harp)

Giovanni Di Domenico (gong rods, toy piano)
