Ukrainian artist Kiritchenko releases his 3rd album on SPEKK. Comparing to the rather laid back and acoustic sounds of the previous albums, Overt is much more intense and constructed into little pieces, with diversity and colorful orchestral sounds. It is not an easy task to give a category nor genre name for this ingenious album. Kiritchenko describes the music as follows:
“I let music be a weather vane of my personality, free from cliches, monosyllabicness and literalness. In experi- mental music most often work with abstraction, emotionlessness, chaos, minimalism. On the contrary, I wanted to make another album that would be very open by the sound, that he would be some kind of sincere and emo- tional. "Overt" is my own harmony of shivers. They were invested by jammed electric squelches, constant com- positional development and rhythm with palpable tension. It's a truthful language of perception, which is not devoid of irony, the synthetic origin of all things is objectively played out in the extracted replicas of live instru- ments. This sound does not tend to hide anything, it has not swirling ambience, he teaches to be distracted from thoughts in favor of the senses. It would be great if everyone can decipher it for themselves in their own way.” - Yes, it is all up to the listeners to read through the lines of this amazingly unique album.

ロックからテクノ、実験音楽まで自由に横断するウクライ ナの天才音楽家によるSPEKKからは10年ぶりのアルバム。前作のゆったり加減からは一転し、音の一粒一粒が覚醒した 研ぎ澄まれたサウンド。まるでオーケストラ隊がミリ単位 で震えるテクノを奏でたような、いや言葉ではもはや説明 のつかない、高揚感に満ち溢れた中毒性の高い作品です。

◎ Andrey Kiritchenkoによる作品概要
私は楽曲を作る際には、あたかも自己を表す風車のように、如何なる固定概念からも自由です。実験音楽においては、普段 は抽象性、非感情的なもの、カオスやミニマリズムを作り上げるのですが、それとは逆にとてもオープンなサウンドを作り たくなったのです。それはどこか誠実でエモーショナルなもの。本作「Overt」は自己の振動のハーモニーのような作品で す。これらの楽曲は押しつぶされた電子の音、コンスタントに発展する楽曲や触知できるテンションのリズムによって産み 出されています。それは、生楽器から抽出されたレプリカを客観的に演奏することで完全合成されており、知覚に誠実な言 葉のようなものです。これらの音は何も隠しておらず、アンビエンスを渦巻かせたりしたものでもなく、思いに紛らわされ ず知覚に素直であることを教えてくれます。音を聴いた方々が自分自身の方法でこれらを解読してくれたら嬉しいです。
