Mark Vernon // Sonograph Sound Effects Series Volume 2: Public and Domestic Plumbing and Sanitation LP

¥3,280
  • Availability:

過去にKyeやCanti Magneticiなどから発表しているスコットランド・グラスゴーの物音作家Mark Vernonが、2021年8月にCalling Cardからリリースした最新作です。

本作は、排水管や排水口、水漏れ、きしむ蛇口や貯水槽などの配管まわりのサウンドを収集したサウンドエフェクトレコード作品です。コンタクトマイクや小型のバイノーラルマイクを用いてアクセスできない小さな空間に入り込み、特殊な視点から多数のサウンドを録音しています。

BBC Sound Effects Libraryのような古典的な効果音アルバムへのオマージュでもあり、それぞれのサウンドの説明も記載しています。プロやアマチュアの放送局、映画制作者、劇場プロデューサーのニーズを満たすためだけのものではなく、純粋に聴いていて面白いアルバムです。

"Mark Vernon presents the second volume of his Sonograph Sound Effects Series – the follow up to the unexpectedly popular ‘Sounds of the Modern Hospital’ LP. This time the focus is on sounds of plumbing and sanitation: drainpipes, plugholes, leaks, squeaky taps and cisterns.

Vernon has recorded many of the sounds from unusual perspectives, in extreme close-up scenarios, using contact mics or small binaural microphones to get into tiny inaccessible spaces. There is also a particular focus on plumbing on-board vehicles and vessels in motion. The intention here is to reveal the marvellous within the most mundane and every day of sounds.

The record masquerades as a collection of generic archetypal sounds whilst in actuality it revels in the specific and unique – some of the most idiosyncratic and characterful instances of such sounds. No two gurgles are alike.

As an avid collector of sound effects records these obsolete discs have gradually taken on new meaning for Vernon as unintended audio time capsules. As their use value has decreased their value as historical audio documents has grown. To produce a sound effects LP in the age of digital audio libraries is an anachronistic gesture intended to elevate what purports to be a generic collection of recordings intended for functional use to the level of an artwork.

The album is in part a homage to classic ranges of sound effects albums such as the BBC Sound Effects Library - even down to the utilitarian design and functional descriptions of the sounds (a key aspect of this release). Such generic collections of sounds were intended to fulfil the needs of professional and amateur broadcasters, filmmakers and theatre producers. However, through careful selection and sequencing it is also intended that this record works as a linear sound composition.
