French musician Bruno Duplant is one of the most talked-about artists on the experimental music scene today. In recent years he's presented many outstanding composed pieces and released a succession of excellent recordings on labels around the world. The abundance and vitality of his work are remarkable.

On this album, two compositions by Duplant are performed by Ordinary Affects, led by Boston-based musician/composer Morgan Evans-Weiler. Ordinary Affects is an experimental music ensemble with an established reputation for performing works by contemporary composers such as Christian Wolff, Antoine Beuger, Michael Pisaro, Jürg Frey, and Kyoko Akama. Track 1 (21 minutes) is a quintet and Track 2 (26 minutes) is a string quartet. The performers are Laura Cetilia (cello), Jordan Dykstra (viola), Morgan Evans-Weiler (violin), J.P.A. Falzone (Fender Rhodes, Track 1 only), Luke Martin (guitar, Track 1 only), and Ashley Frith (viola, Track 2 only).

Each piece has a highly controlled, spacious tempo throughout. The sounds' overlapping and their successive emergence have a dreamlike quality that gently beckons the listener into a state of abstraction. Bruno Duplant's talent and originality as a composer and Ordinary Affects' excellence as performers are fully on display in this superb recording.

フランスの Bruno Duplant は、現在の実験音楽シーンにおいて、最も注目を集める音楽家のひとりである。近年、優れた作曲作品を多く発表し、世界中のレーベルから良質のリリースが相次いでいて、その質量共に旺盛な活動には目を見張るものがある。

本アルバムには、Duplant が作曲したふたつの作品を収録。演奏はどちらの曲も、米国、ボストンを拠点に活動する演奏家 / 作曲家、Morgan Evans-Weiler が率いる Ordinary Affects。Christian Wolff、Antoine Beuger、Michael Pisaro、Jürg Frey、赤間涼子をはじめ、現代の作曲家の作品演奏に定評のある実験音楽アンサンブルである。1曲目 (21分) はクインテット、2曲目 (26分) は弦楽カルテットによる演奏で、メンバーは、Laura Cetilia (チェロ)、Jordan Dykstra (ヴィオラ)、Morgan Evans-Weiler (ヴァイオリン)、J.P.A. Falzone (フェンダー・ローズ、1曲目のみ)、Luke Martin (ギター、1曲目のみ)、Ashley Frith (ヴィオラ、2曲目のみ)。

両曲とも、非常に抑制の効いたゆったりとしたテンポの演奏が最後まで続く。その音の重なり合いや連なりは夢幻的で、聴き手をそっと放心状態へと誘うかのよう。しかし演奏自体は終始、緩慢に堕することなく緊張感を失わない。Bruno Duplant の作曲家としての才能と個性、Ordinary Affects の演奏の素晴らしさ、そのどちらも堪能できる名盤。
