about

『イステット・セレナーデ(Istet Serenade)』(2009)から2年の時間をかけ完成した新作はローランド流のエレクトロ・ミュージック。

前作『イステット・セレナーデ』ではアンプリファイドを控えめに、アコースティックの響きに重きをおいていたが、今作ではサウンド合成(シンセサイズ)をしまくったエレクトロ・サウンドで彼の新境地を聴かせる……と、表面上はそうなのだが、コアにはやはり彼の哲学<アイソフォニック>が貫かれ、ヤング独特のコンプロヴィゼイション(作曲と即興の合成語)を通じて表現されるのは『アイソフォニック・ブギウギ』から続くあの世界。ゆえにそこいらの連中とはサウンドの鍛錬度が格違いで、密度の濃さはディープ・リスニングにも耐えうる。また、完成する最後まで問題にしたのがサウンドの音圧と表情で、ブルックリンに生きる彼のリアルさが、この攻撃的でヒリヒリした音の緊張感に現れている。(いったん完成したものの、その後リミックスまで施して追い込んだ厳しいサウンドに注目。)

"Mystiphonic" is the third release from Roland P. Young on EM, following "Isophonic Boogie Woogie" [EM1045CD/LP] which was originally released in 1980 and re-issued by EM in 2005, and the 2009 "Istet Serenade" [EM1087CD/LP].

"Mystiphonic" is the fruit of two years of recordings at Young's Isophonic Sound Laboratory in Brooklyn, "comprovisations" which are more electronic than the previous EM releases, and yet this new CD retains Young's emotional life-long horn playing, a romance which began in his youth in Kansas City. Also carrying on from previous releases is the all-encompassing warmth and organic/oceanic feeling of Young's music, a rootedness that has been present since his early exposure to Charlie Parker, on through his San Francisco years and ever forward, linking past, present and future through deep American soil to his world-embracing current music, all united through his "Isophonic" philosophy. The "Mystiphonic" blend of electronics, percussion and horns is one of subtle beauty, sure to please Young's fans while attracting new admirers.
