キャル・ライアル × 鈴木康文 スペシャルインタビュー

出演者紹介:

ガガキライズ (Gagakirise)

ガガキライズはHellaの緊迫感とSlayerを足したような轟音と、早弾きのインプロビゼーションを見せる。2006年に結成。ギターの吉澤幸男とドラムのイノウエ リョウが様々なエフェクトや大きなアンプを使い怒濤のパフォーマンスを見せてくれる。

Muddy World

ニューヨークのジョン・ゾーンからすでに絶賛され、Tzadikレーベルからアルバムをリリース。その後、テキサスのオースティンで催されたSXSWフィスティバルにも出演し、Muddy Worldは次々と新しい展開を見せている。彼らのサウンドはサイケデリック・ジプシーが降り立ったような流暢で魔法のようなギターとともに、タイトなリズムと複雑な曲構造によって成り立っている。Gabor SzaboまたはSir Richard BishopがBattlesと一夜限りのライブでゲスト演奏をしているのを想像できれば、音のイメージは大体近いと言える。次の展開に向かうことを恐れずに、個性的で影響を与えうるオリジナルなバンドである。

Zyc0s

Zyc0sの主な影響は70年代のラウンジジャズか90年代のニューヨークヒップホップか2030年のフリージャズ。様々な影響をもとに、メンバーそれぞれがいろいろなリズムにいろいろなアイディアを投げかけてみる。その結果、テンポからはずれたおもしろいテクスチャーが重なり合う。ベースの岩見継吾(Oncenth Trio、okhp)、バイブラフォンの服部正嗣(Ryusenkei Body)、ドラムの小森耕造が皆そのレベルの高い音楽性を持ち寄っておもしろいものができてくる。

Rokapenis

斉藤洋平は1999年以来、長年のコラボレーター、ダンスグルーープのBaby Q の大きなスクリーンやメタルカラオケMaruosaのスピードコラージュまで様々な種類のビデオ作品を作ってきた。先月の2日間のイベント V.I.I.MではTiger Tigerというパフォーマンス作品を披露。今回はSuper Deluxeの大きな白い壁でそのビジュアルを見せてくれる。

Cal Lyall and Yasufumi Suzuki Special Interview!! (JP only)

Artist info:

Gagakirise


Wheee—all the thump, bump and metal you would expect from a commercial jet in a nosedive, minus your fear of heights. Gagakirise play loud, fast and frantic improvisations with the intensity of Hella and the ballsy hair-fliging fun of Slayer. Since they formed in 2006, Sachio Yoshizawa (guitar) and Ryo Inoue (drums) have been using a pile of effects, an even bigger pile of amps, and a walloping live show to recreate something akin to a herd of wild elephants onstage.
Better (and with less cages) than a day at the zoo.

Muddy World


Having already received the thumbs-up from New York luminary John Zorn with a release on his benchmark Tzadik label, and following an appearance at Austin's preeminent SXSW festival, Muddy World continue to move into fresh new territory, without any signs of slowing down. Their sound somehow manages to mesh tight rhythms and complex song structures with passages of guitar wizardry, played deftly in a style that seems to have descended from psychedelic gypsies. If you picture Battles hiring Gabor Szabo or Sir Richard Bishop for a one-off gig, you might be getting close.
An inspiring and original band that isn't afraid to take the next step forward.

Zyc0s


Zyc0s could be the bastard child of 70s lounge jazz, or perhaps a platter of 90s New York hip hop left out way too long in the sun. With a lunchbox of influences, the individual members throw decisive melodic intent against a cavalcade of rhythm, creating sumptuous textures that slip intermittently out of time. Zyc0s members Keigo Iwami (Oncenth Trio, okhp), Masatsugu Hattori (Ryusenkei Body) and Kohzo Komori are all masterful musicians that do their best to bring their experience and experimentation to the table in full force. And goodness gracious, it even grooves.

Rokapenis


Since 1999, visual artist Yohei Saito has been active with a bewildering array of video work, from his longstanding collaboration with dance group Baby Q, to handling big-screen visuals at the Metamorphose outdoor festival, to his mind-bending speed collages with grind-metal karaokeist Maruosa. Following last month's spectacular two-day extravaganza V.I.I.M, where he showcased his captivating new performance piece Tiger Tiger, Saito will once again be bringing his visual tempest to the big white walls of Super Deluxe.

About Test Tone...
Test Tone is a free monthly event that promotes varied and, we hope, interesting live music to a wider audience in Tokyo. We wanted to create an event that highlights the diversity of great music and visual art being made here and give more people an opportunity to see and hear it.

To make Test Tone as accessible as possible we wanted a central Tokyo space with a good sound system; a place where people would want to come and hang out, eat, drink and meet people. And listen to some live music that they may not otherwise get exposed to. As a further encouragement, we wanted to make the event free—not only for the audience, but for the performers too.

All this could easily have been an order too tall were it not for the exceptional people at Super Deluxe that made it all possible. Their enthusiasm for live music and visuals and faith in the event, allowing us complete creative freedom in booking artists, has allowed Test Tone to grow into something even broader in scope than we could have hoped for back in February 2005 when we proudly presented volume 1.

Our aim is to create a wider community. To further that, please get in touch if you are interested in playing, or want to be kept up to date with Test Tone events.

Finally, we'd like to say thanks to everyone that has been involved with Test Tone, especially all the artists that have made the events such a continuing success.
