illmotix Ahh yes so glad this is finally on Bandcamp. I've listened to quite a bit of experimental electronic music over the years and this still stands as one of the most vivid and unique projects I've ever experienced. Favorite track: multiplex.

about

In contrast with his previous album "ttm studies 08" which utilizes the complex systems theory, this work is based on natural environmental sounds. From macro vibrations of urban overview to micro vibrations of a melting ice, the field recordings, which have been collected over time by evala himself (his blog "hacking tone" offers a glimpse of them), are precisely repeating the topological transformation with an unprecedented method, vividly presenting the "new acoustic" which is neither natural nor artificial.
With advanced technology and distinct focus, boldly and sensitively processing and deforming the phenomenon such as sound reflection, collection, propagation and resonance, it draws the steric and high-density acoustic space where myriad music vividly vibrates. This album once again fully reveals evala’s spectacular audibility and musical orientation, and it draws a clear line between existing works such as using only environmental ambient sounds just to add some realism in the music or by only amplifying small vibrations. A truly innovative album which leads the cutting edge music to a new paradigm.

複雑系理論の応用による前作「ttm studies 08」とは一転し、自然環境音をベースとした本作。 evala自らの手により、都市を俯瞰したマクロな振動から氷が溶解するミクロな振動まで、長期にわたって断続的に採集したフィールド・レコーディング音源を(その一部は本人のブログ「hacking tone」で垣間みることができる)、かつてない手法で緻密に位相変換を繰り返し、自然でも人工でもない「新しい響き」をあざやかに提示してみせている。
音の反射, 集音, 伝播, 共鳴などといった現象を、先鋭テクノロジーと独創的な焦点でもって大胆かつ繊細に加工変形操作を行いながら、立体的で高密度な、生々しく無数の音楽がふるえる音響空間を導きだしている。evalaの鮮烈な聴力と音楽性があらためて全開となった本作は、環境音の写実性を楽音に並走させただけの、あるいは微細振動を拡大しただけの従来のフィールドレコーディング作品群とは明らかに一線を画す。先端音楽へ新たなパラダイムを示す、革新的な一枚となるであろう。
