ギリシャのサイケデリック物音作家Tasos Stamouが、2022年1月に200部限定でリリースした最新2枚組CDです。物音ドローン5曲を収録。デジパック、シュリンク仕様です。以下、作家本人による解説です。

この2枚組のアルバムは、私の音楽における2つの異なる実践、ライブパフォーマンスとスタジオワークを紹介するためのものです。
驚異的に異なる場所からのものですが、ステージとスタジオの両方でシンプルで完全な電子音響のセットアップを実現するための長年の実験の結果です。オリジナルのアイデアは、電子的に操作されながらも、しばしば「楽器」と呼ばれる伝統的な組織化された音響装置の有機的で感覚的な特質をすべて保持する方法で、持続音を生成するアコースティック楽器で作曲や演奏をすることでした。

このリリースは、音楽制作のこの2つの側面を衝突させるという私の最も新しい試みであり、持続する音楽への私の個人的な関与への音の旅を提供するものです。Moving Furniture Recordsは、この旅の始まり以来、この種の音楽をリリースするためのプラットフォームとなっています。
リスナーに物理的な影響を与えながらも、心を刺激するのに十分な複雑さと物語性を持った音を長く鳴らす技術を研究しながら、これらの探求的なサウンドは、アコースティック楽器の音質からインスピレーションを得て、常に電子操作による歪んだ鏡/虫眼鏡効果の影響を受けています。

Description and bio by Tasos Stamou:

The occasion of this double album is to present the two different practices in my music, live performance and studio work.
Although phenomenally coming from a different place, it is a result of years of experimentations to bring a simple yet complete electroacoustic set up both on stage and in studio. The original idea was to compose or perform with acoustic instruments generating sustained sounds in a way that, although electronically manipulated, would retain all the organic and sensual qualities of traditional organized sound making devices, often called “instruments”.

This release overall is presenting my most recent attempts to collide these two sides of music production and to deliver a sonic journey to my personal engagement with sustained music. ‘Moving Furniture Records’ has been my platform to release this sort of music since the beginning of this journey.
While studying the art of prolonging a sound for long enough to physically affects the listener, yet complicated and narrative enough to stimulate the mind too, these exploratory sounds are inspired by the acoustic instruments’ sonic qualities, always under the influence of the distorting mirror/ magnifying glass effects of electronic manipulation.

About Tasos Stamou:


"Electroacoustic music composer and performer, alternative electronic music instrument maker, tutor and sound technologist.

During a decade of sound performances and recordings, Tasos Stamou has developed a unique style of live electroacoustic composition. Long and continuous pieces are created on stage or in the studio using a “portable electroacoustic music studio”. His gear consists of acoustic (prepared zither, reeds, recorders, objects) and electronic instruments (handmade electronics, modular synthesizer systems and live processed feedback loops). Based on sustained tonal textures and free improvised instrumental solos, his live compositions create a particular and unique atmosphere of ritual noise.

He is currently leading a workshop series exploring circuit bending & hardware hacking for experimental sound production.

Tasos Stamou has an eclectic body of recorded work, released by exploratory music labels (Moving Furniture, Lal Lal Lal, Linear Obsessional Recordings, Orila, Triple Bath, Kukuruku Recordings, Absurd, Coherent States).

He has performed across Europe and the U.S. in festivals and venues for innovative sound (Incubate Festival, Cafe OTO in London, Supernormal Festival, BENT Festival New York, Cave 12 in Geneva, Sounds of the Underground Festival, Ausland in Berlin, CologneOFF Festival, Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, and many more). Although mainly a solo performer and recording artist, he frequently collaborates with other sound artists, improvisers and experimentalists (such as Adam Bohman, Alan Wilkinson, London Improvisers Orchestra, Mike Cooper, Andrea Parkins, Kuupuu & Lau Nau, Terry Day, Adachi Tomomi, Ilan Manouach, Ignaz Schick, Magda Mayas, Arma Agharta, Thodoris Ziarkas, etc.) at various venues and festivals for innovative music.

Although his music is inspired by different contemporary and traditional genres (free improvised music, musique concrète, noise & drone, folklore and ritual/tribal music) his main influence is personal states and experiences of the sonic environment, such as early childhood memories (“Infant”, 2007), the loss of a beloved person (“The return of the long lost one”, 2013) or the experience of a rural festivity (“Koura”, 2016).

Tasos is also developing a series of visual art; showing his work at occasional exhibitions/installation shows and illustrating media."
