about

After 2 years of silence from the big hit “Neon Veils” album, Arctic Hospital releases his 3rd album. This album is full of his personal thoughts that he would not like to be called “dub techno” artist. So in this album, the sounds are more himself and the result is a dynamic record full of colorful melodies.

突然の活動休止宣言から2年の沈黙を破り、大人気のアークティック・ホスピタルによる最新アルバムが登場!! ダブテクノと言われることに違和感を覚え、なにからも自由で自分らしく作ったという本作は、これまでよりも格段とカラフルなメロディと圧倒的な強度を誇るリズムで全編貫かれた快心の1枚。前作、前々作と爆発的なヒットを記録しているアークティックの最新型が凝縮されたファンにはたまらない作品!!

「In Chaos」の特色は、なによりも様々なスタイルを注入しているところで、今までの2作とは全然異なったアプローチを取っている。ダブテクノからより自由に、凝縮したものを目指したという本作は、明るさと暗さのバランスを取りつつ、メロディアスなフィーリングと圧倒的な強度で全編貫かれている。

■Profile

Green Bay, Wisconsin native Eric Bray has been quietly and consistently recording music as Arctic Hospital since 2004.
His first releases came out through Miami's Narita imprint, culminating in the 2006 release of "Citystream," an energetic and soaring album of Dub Techno and IDM. In 2008 he joined Tokyo's Lantern label to release "Neon Veils", combining elements of Citystream into more varied and catchy territories, dialing the energy of his first release back for something more understated.
2010 saw the release of the appropriately named "In Chaos" album, a collection of songs jumping from one style to the next in endlessly surprising and strangely entertaining ways. his 2012 album "Going Sun" shifts his style even further with slow house and techno that cascades with beautiful tones, creating a hypnotic and calming effect while retaining the vibrancy that made his earlier work so appealing. Apart from Arctic Hospital, he records music in groups such as The World On Higher Downs and Compass Hour, as well as solo recording projects such as the pleasant guitar feedback of Window Age, as well as the simple yet experimental electronic pop of Oceans & Oil.

<本人による解説>

新しいアルバムでは、今までやってきたことを捨てなければならなかった。ダブテクノというジャンルに分類されることに違和感があり、それは自分ではないような気がして、しばらくはアルバムも作りたくなかった。僕が音楽を始めた当初は、そういうサウンドはとてもクールに思えたが、その頃は人に言われるまでそれが何だったのかも分からなかったし、だんだんやるごとにつまらなく思えて来た。なので、今回のアルバムは、そういった想いをぶつけました。トラックはかなり凝縮されたものだけれども、基本的に統一感等気にしないゆるい気持ちで作ったものです。かなり満足した個人的なものであると同時に、開かれたものでもあり、今までで一番自分らしさが出たアルバムだと思います。
