商品説明

The two previous full-length albums by Nobukazu Takemura available in the United States were his playful Child's View album Funfair and the much more abstract Scope, released under his own name. In many ways, Hoshi No Koe splits the difference between those two records. That this album can contain the full range of Takemura's musical vision is partly a testament to its extreme length. At nearly 78 minutes, Hoshi No Koe has room for both the extended experiments in microscopic sound manipulation of Trampoline, which echoes the density of Scope's Taw, and the gleeful, vocodered pop of Sign, easily the most traditional song Takemura has done yet. Fortunately, through smart pacing, Takemura managed to create a work that feels something like a coherent album. Of some help are the delicate and melodious music-box style organ pieces that lend thematic unity. The album opens with the gentle One Day, which is very reminiscent of the meditative work of sometime collaborator Aki Tsuyuko. Stairs in Stars is as lovely on the surface as a classic carousel song, and is creepy and dark a layer beneath. The 12-minute Anemometer is a fascinating track that explores minimalist ideas of repetition using keyboard patterns, a clarinet, and erratic electronic percussion. A Chrysalis evolves over its 16-minute length from seemingly random bells and whines into a dense and lovely drone, and is perhaps the most successful of Takemura's sound experiments. Hoshi No Koe is certainly erratic and unwieldy, but it's packed with breathtaking moments that reward careful listening. ~ Mark Richardson, Rovi

聞けば聞くほどはまる不思議なTakemura music! 一度聞いただけでは分かりませんでした。 club musicのネクストを知る上で貴重なものだと思う。

ほしのこえのThrill Jockey 盤。(5,6曲目が異なる。) 個人的に竹村延和のベストアルバムは97年作の”こどもと魔法”だと思っているが、 これはこれで良く眠れるのでよいのではないでしょうか。 最後までちゃんと聞けたことがなくいつも寝てしまいます。
