about

text by William Basinski

Richard and I became friends after meeting at Tonic in NY when he and Taylor Deupree did a show with Carsten Nicolai. He contacted me about a possible collaboration and sent me a track which I thought was very rich and harmonically similar to something I had recently been working on, a very swampy, dark piece I was calling "The Garden of Brokenness" after a very beautiful new installation by James Elaine. I popped it into pro tools with my piece and something really special was happening, so I spent a few weeks weeding my track, trying different things...eventually I stripped it way down and we were both quite happy with the result. Richard came up to NY and we fine tuned it a bit together and it was done. Since the piece had changed quite a bit we decided not to use that title for this piece. He then sent me another one and again, it just worked with something else I had been working on...the second track came together very quickly, and there you have it! I love Richard's work...very elegant, like the man!

世界のサウンド・アーティストの中でも最大のリスペクトを受けている2人による奇跡のコラボレーション作品!ウィリアム・バシンスキーは70年代から活躍するNY在住の映像/音楽作家で、自身のMMLXIIレーベルから多数の傑作をリリース。独ラスター・ノトンからも先日、メランコリックな佇まいが美しい2枚組を発表。リチャード・シャルティエは、12K傘下のLINEレーベルを仕切り、自身でも3PARTICLESレーベルを運営。昨夏には東京のICCで開催された「SOUNDING SPACE展」に上記のテイラーと共に展示を発表し来日もしている。本作は、全2曲の超大作で、まずシャルティエがウィリアムにコラボを打診し音源を送ったところ、それがたまたま当時ウィリアムがJAMES ELAINEのインスタレーションのために作っていた作品に雰囲気が似ていたので当てはめ調和させたもので、もう1曲も同様である。最終的にウィリアムのところで一緒に整えミックスされた本作は、まさに現在進行形の[アンビエント]とも言うべきデリケートでディープな内容で、その世界観は圧巻です!ジャケはシャルティエ自身によるペインティング。
