Vague Fable 04:07


Text by Andrey Kiritchenko
When I started to think about new album, I wanted to keep up with what I have started to explore in “True Delusion” release and continued in “Stuffed With/Out”. I wanted to introduce something new to the sound – make it more acoustic than electronic. Believe me or not, I wanted to make a jazz record (my way of course) - cinematic, naive and visionary album.
In the new album I choose piano as the main and solo instrument and wanted to make it sound in minimalist, melodic and overtone way. So, when I had some amount of free time in rehearsal rooms of Stockholm’s student chummery I started to make first piano sketches. After those sessions and also collecting piano outlines I made later in Kharkov I decided to continue with an appropriate jazz attribute – drums. After few unsuccessful conversations with local drummers I decided to ask Jason Kahn and Martin Brandlmayer for their participation as I really appreciate their stuff and approach. After their part was done I still had some tracks that wished to have a percussion part too, so I decided to try that out myself and bought a snare and a set up of cymbals. By that time I had wonderful field recordings of insects I made on half-island of Crimea (Ukraine) and they fitted very well with the rest and also with my usual instruments: guitar, glockenspiel, mouth harmonica, auto-harp, Tibetan bowls and objects.

私が新たなアルバム制作を開始しようと考えたときに、自分が「True Delusion 」で探求し始め、 「Stuffed With/Out」まで続けたものに引けをとらないものにしたいと思いました。 私は何か新しいものをサウンドに取り入れたかったのです。 エレクトロニックよりはアコースティックなもの。 信じないかもしれませんが自分なりのジャスのレコードを制作したかったのです。 それはシネマティックでナイーヴ、映像的なアルバムです。新作では、 ピアノをメインの楽器に選びました。そして、ミニマルに、 メロディアスで倍音的にそれを用いたかったのです。なので、 ストックホルムの学生施設のリハスタで自由時間があった時に最初のピアノ・ スケッチを作り始めました。それらのセッションやカーコイでのちに作ったピアノの素材をかき集め、 ジャズ的な考えでドラムを次に入れることを考えました。 地元のドラマーとのいくつかの不毛な会話の後、Jason KahnとMartin Brandlmayer(Radian) のアプローチが好きだったので、彼等にドラムをお願いすることにしました。 彼等のパートが終ったあと、それでもいくつかの曲でパーカッションが欲しかったので、 自分でスネアやシンバルを購入し録音しました。その頃には自分がクリメア(ウクライナ) で録音した、とても良い感じのフィールド・レコーディングがあったので、それを付けたし、 いつものギター、グロッケン、口ハーミニカ、ハープ、 チベット式ボウルなどを加えて完成させました。
