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:

Lead Sister II

自作楽器演奏者!
元来のリード・シスター (カレン・カーペンター) とはかなり違うけど、リード・シスター II (Joshua Hume) は次世代のポップスターになる可能性を秘めている。お手製の楽器はバタバタしたしたリズムやバレルハウス (ジャズの初期のスタイルの音楽) なメロディーを奏でる。演奏自体は少しサーカスのようで、福音伝道者のようでもあり、太い音を出す。 今回のTest Toneではリード・シスター II が作ったこのオリジナルの楽器を見れる。

Scriptones

破壊的サーキットベンディング!
Stan EberleinのソロプロジェクトScriptonesは、自由な構成でリズミックなLegofriendlyよりはやや即興の色が強い。ヤマハのドラムマシンと安っぽいエフェクター 、選び抜かれたフィールドレコーディングを駆使して音を作り上げていく。ケーブルをつなぎ、自分の手も使って、即興的、ランダム的なノイズが空間に響き渡 る。そんなサウンドは、特別な用事もなしにこの大都会をぶらぶらと歩き回るのとちょっと似ているかもしれない。

onnacodomo

スペシャルライブセット!
onnacodomo は日常の出来事や物からアイディアを得て、何でもないものをすばらしいものにしてしまう。コンピューターグラフィックやすでに準備されたものを使うのでは なく、メンバー3人(DJ Codomo、せきやすこ、 野口路加)はビデオカメラを使い即興で映像を作り出す。水や鏡、ライトを使いきらきらしたプロジェクションが 映し出される間に、昔の写真や台所の用具やおもちゃ、文房具、即興のアート作品を使い美しいイメージが作り出される。目まぐるしく変わり、非日常的、 onnacodomoの映像は見るものを奇妙な世界に引き込み、アイディアが独創的。今回のTest Toneではオリジナルのサウンドマニピュレーションを使いめったにないライブを見せてくれる。

Ningen Dog Orchestra

子犬の応援団!?
Super utako、23N!とyosei (このうち2人はノイズインプロビゼーションユニットNo Fork Droiseのメンバー) 率いる人間ドッグ・オーケストラ。エレクトロニクスやおもちゃのぬいぐるみを操る。

Artist info:

Lead Sister II


Homemade instrumentalist!
While not exactly following in the footsteps of the original Lead Sister (aka Karen Carpenter), Lead Sister II (aka Joshua Hume) could very well hold the key to unlocking the next pop sensation. Using a collection of self-crafted musical instruments, Lead Sister II exorcises swampy rhythms, barrelhouse melodies, and the whirr and whizz of clocks arranged in a kalimba countdown. The performance could be likened to something part circus-tout delivery, part gospel preacher, and the sounds are thick indeed. This night, Lead Sister II will be bringing some rarified spring contraptions to the stage, while he echoes the remains of the muggy summer in a creaky carnivalesque romp. Come be the first to dance.

Scriptones


Disruptive circuit bending!
Stan Eberlein once again steps out of the loosely composed bounce of Legofriendly and into a slightly more improvised setting with Scriptones, his solo incarnation. Armed with an old Yamaha drum machine, a crappy effector, and some deftly chosen field recordings, Stan looks deep into the the world of interrupted sound, and sound as interruption. By attaching cables and using his hands in the open circuits of the electronics, he is able to throw improvised, yet seemingly random, elements of noise into our living spaces. One might imagine it's a little bit like walking around this big old city, but without the pressing engagements.

onnacodomo


Special live!
Taking their inspiration from moments and objects from everyday life, visual unit onnacodomo make the ordinary decidedly extraordinary. Eschewing computer-generated graphics or recorded material, the three members (DJ Codomo, Yasuko Seki and Ruka Noguchi) perform in real time using a video camera to capture their spontaneous creations. Shimmering projections are created using water, mirrors and an array of lights, while a world of fantastic images is constructed with found photos, kitchen utensils, toys, stationary and improvised artwork. Kaleidoscopic, absurd and unreal, onnacodomo takes you into a slightly-unhinged world that is absolutely original in its conception.
On this special night, onnacodomo will be performing a rare live performance using their own original sound manipulations.

Ningen Dog Orchestra


Cheerleader puppies!
Everybody knows that if humans live with animals long enough, they eventually start to resemble each other. These anthropomorphic circuit-bent canines take it one step further. Not only do they creepily resemble their human counterparts, but they've been loaded with twisted electronics that have them flipping, barking, and chasing their transistor tails.
Conducted by super utako, 23N! & Yosei (two of whom make up modified-instrument noise -improv unit No Fork Droise), the noise should meld with the yip and the yap of this singular orchestra for an altogether different kind of petting zoo.

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.
