about

Taylor Deupree
January was composed between January and May 2003. The inspiration for the cd came from my visit to Japan on a tour with 12k artists Richard Chartier and Sogar. We made many, many friends and it was one of the most enjoyable and inspirational travels i have taken in recent memory.

January attempts to loosely chronicle this trip by combining the stillness of looping passages with moving and non-repeating elements. a simple metaphor for our travels and the ideas of time standing still to experience a single moment forever. Our first morning in Tokyo there was a very heavy, yet gentle snowfall, a very vivid visual memory and the inspiration for the granular sounds in this recording. January utilizes many of the same practices and concepts of my work with loops and frozen sounds (such as on Stil.) but also adds layers of live instrumentation and voices. January features live, processed electric piano as well as vocal fragments, courtesy of Sawako. More pieces with voices were written in these sessions but did not appear on the final release.

This album was written at a time in my life of great changes and new beginnings and is dedicated to my son, Nicholas, who was born on February 19th, 2003.

日本でも大人気の米12Kレーベルを主催するテイラー・デュプリーによる待望の最新フル・アルバム!テイラーは、NY在住のグラフィック/写真なども手掛けるサウンド・アーティストで、今までにも独ミル・プラトーやラスター・ノトン、アイルランドのFALLT、ベルギーの
SUB ROSAなど、この手の世界中の主要レーベルから多数作品をリリース。本作は、自身の12Kからリリースされた前作「STIL」の続編にあたる作品で、さらなるループの探究をテーマにしたもの。長編5曲からなる本作は、昨年の来日時に新幹線の窓から見た景色のうつろいや、街の流れなど「ムーブメント(動き)」がコンセプトの、とても情緒溢れる作品である。また同時期に息子が誕生しており、色んな意味を込めて「1月」と名付けられた本作は、どこか優しさに溢れた本人も特別の思い入れのある1枚となっている。最新のプロセッシング・
ウェアで制作され、初とも言える本人による手弾きの電子音ピアノ、世界をまたにかけ活躍するsawakoのボーカル(声ネタ)も入っており、聴きどころが満載です。先端性とハーモニーが溶け合った実に美しく、心地の良い作品となっております !!
