SPEKK is active than ever this year and following the releases by Optiope, Celer and Federico Durand, comes an extraordinary impro album by Piiptsjilling. Piiptsjilling is a quartet consisting of Jan Kleefstra (poetry, vocals), Romke Kleefstra (guitars), Mariska Baars (guitar and vocals) and Rutger Zuydervelt (Machinefabriek, electronics). The band name (pronounced 'peep-chilling') is Frisian, also the language of Jan Kleefstra's poetry. Either live of in a studio setting, their music is always improvised on the spot. Working highly intuitively, the quartet patiently moves through stretches of melancholic dreamscapes, varying between abstract minimalism and dense drones. Piiptsjilling's first (self titled) album was released by the Dutch label Onomatopee in 2008, followed by the albums 'Wurdskrieme' (Experimedia, 2011) and 'Moerwardt' (Midira, 2014) and his latest album entitled 'Molkedrippen' was recorded at Studio Landscape in Gau, Friesland. As always, the music was 100% improvised, with no negotiation beforehand. The result is a magical amalgamation of four performers with a mutual concentration and dedication - a documentation of the musical (or spiritual?) connection of the players. Rather then being based on a strict conceptual framework, the album is the result of channelling the inspiration found in that very moment and recording them onto tape. Thus, this is ‘who and what they are’ at the moment of recording. The rural place where it was recorded (a farm between endless meadows in the Frisian lake district) also has a big influence on the album. This quiet environment and the relaxed atmosphere of the recording made its mark - things flow in their own tempo, unhurried, carrying the poetry through a variety of abstract aural landscapes, even though a bit of noise is always just around the corner.

今年の再始動から、Opitope、celer、Federico Durandと立て続けにリリースし、圧倒的なクオリティを見せつけたSPEKKが満を持して送り出す新作は、これまでに12k、home normal、sonic piecesなど世界中のレーベルから作品を発表してきたMachinefabriekことRutger Zuydervelt率いるインプロビゼーションバンドによる傑作アルバム!!100%即興によって紡がれるサウンドは、即興演奏の不確定さ、一種の危うさをたたえながらも計算し尽くされたような完璧なサウンドスケープを聴かせてくれます。深く重く広がっていくドローンギター、微弱に揺らめくループサウンド、幽遠につぶやかれるポエトリーが絡み合う今作は、抽象的なミニマリズムや濃密なドローンやサウンドスケープを行き来する、全てが瞬時の即興とは思えない驚愕の出来!!
