ドイツ・ベルリンのフィールドレコーディング作家diane barbé が、2022年10月にベルリンの実験レーベルForms of Minutiaeから60部限定でリリースしたカセットです。

タイのナコーンチャイシー郡とカオソック国立公園で録音したフィールドレコーディング5曲を収録。DLコード付属。廃盤です。以下、彼女自身による解説です。

このページは、しわくちゃで、丸まっていて、何週間も濃い空気に浸かっていて、インクの線が少しにじんでいる。言葉は触れる。夜、嵐、暖かい午後、すべてが地上のものの物語で語られる。マダンの木の上では、コエルが絶え間なく鳴き続け、何かを訴えている。女性たちが種を植え、花を水に浮かべ、手を土に差している。生物たちは、集合的な川の中で共に生き、同じ体の器官のようにつながって、長い時間の流れの中を漂っている。マイクを片手に、大きなバナナの葉の下に身を置き、この森に住む私たち全員に降り注ぐ雨を目撃する。生き物は語り合い、水は果てしなく循環する。

Forms of Minutiae:

"After multiple non-human morphings, Diane Barbé comes back to her hominid-self to share a glimpse into Thailand’s rainforests and the acoustic expressions they foster. "a conference of critters" is a humid, drenched, gathering of biophonic and sylvan gestures cadenced by delicate human interventions. Here, the jungle pulses and hums. Thick stridulations guide us from the margins of the forest to its heart. Dwelling between soakings and crepuscular choruses, a multitude of earthlings sound the tropical ecologies. Monkeys, insects, frogs, birds, and humans intertwine under a resonating canopy. ‘The critters confer’ Barbé writes as she inevitably blends with the local fauna. Amid the strident ecoscape, perspectives oscillate — without warning animals (humans included) invade the foreground, momentarily dissolving the sonic tapestry before vanishing back into the greenery. These recollections transport us in a sonant bloom. A murmur rises, creatures stir, rain sizzles, leaves vibrate, the forest materializes.

All sounds heard and recorded in Nakhon Chai Si province and Khao Sok National Park, Thailand, April-May 2021. Some of the voices and moments were part of Enclosed Garden, an interdisciplinary art residency curated by the Heroines’Wave network."

Artist bio via the label :

"Waeving together experimental music, biophonic research and activism, Diane Barbé searches for forms of interspecies resonance to explore chronobiology –understanding human and non-human animal entanglements through time manipulations. She is currently creating an ensemble of wind instruments, percussions, bird calls and little sound devices, called The Alien Kin, that are used for musicking in open air, with and beyond human audiences. Diane has been based in Berlin since 2015 and is engaged in many forms of collaborations with dancers, dreamers, whistlers, image-makers, performers, writers, and other kinds of creatures."
