フランス・リヨンの実験レーベルwabi-sabi tapesを本邦初入荷しました。

本作は、Few CracklesやGroovedgeからも発表しているssabæの3作目となるフルアルバムです。低音重視のドローンとパルス音をブレンドした4曲を収録。とりわけB面の長尺を聴き応えあります。100本限定、DLコード付属。

 

Following his first two releases on Few Crackles and Groovedge, ssabae returns with more stretched forms, exploring the expression of frequency epiphenomena. Borrowing from the psychology of Gestalt in its research on the perception of forms, fractal archipelago questions our psyche and its capacity to associate images and, more specifically here, sounds, while freeing itself from the production of a stable pattern.

“snake city” projects the listener in front of a large narthex of a Borges-style maze. He is greeted by slaps of sizzling reeds before finding himself wrapped in the magnetic fog of granular drone music. "the queen of silence" constitues the rhythmic core of the album. The oscillation is minimal and allows a dialogue between muffled pulsations and the retracted shadow of a female voice.

"mirrored lights" explores the affinity that can spring from opposite movements. The tension exerted by the uncertainty of being in the ascent or in the fall finds its nodal point in the fragility of a short vocal sequence, as an archaic expression of humanity. Side B of fractal archipelago refers to ukiyo, the buddhist transient world. It unravels like a conscious and tentacular observation of illusion.

ssabæ seems to place his reflection in a liminal space where perceptions fade and where a sound geography shifts it organization independently. fractal archipelago does not depict a cartography of diverse islands but rather reflects the interactions within a seismological ecosystem, where the mineral, the electric and organic pierce one another. Where the vibratory rumble coil tirelessly, the anamnesis of our fundamental abstraction is born.
