ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Extracts from sleeve notes

"TWO NEEDLES AND SIX WIRES" is a duo consisted of Takahiro Inoue and DJ Jet Sonic.
Takahiro Inoue is a guitarist of "ARKIVE", "NEUK", and "NUKEANA", which are music bands mainly playing avant-garde improvisation music.
He also gave and performed his music with "ANGELUS", which is a theatrical company in Kanazawa,Japan.
His music was highly regarded at their performance in the east Europe.

DJ Jet Sonic is in charge of making sound and putting together some pieces of sounds.
He plays music in clubs or open-air concerts as a DJ, and he also plays jam sessions with many musicians.
Their session lasted many hours, and they recorded their music on cheap 4-track-MTR.
At last, their careers which have never met go beyond a sense of incongruity in the avant-garde music by their method of expression.

Their works never demand hasty answers.
However, it's up to listeners to feel their taste of the sounds if this album ware a cup of soup on the table which pepole couldn't answer the temperature.
I enjoy rouse of my standard and reason for existence in myself when I listen to a work incorporating abstract techniques.
I enjoy this album with a discord between Takahiro Inoue and DJ Jet Sonic and their harmonic approaches.

At first, polyvarent music, monotone, and united mood give me niceties.
Soon, I notice their music is strong self-confession and cool sharp performance.
At the present time, a finally mastered work hasn't reached me.
Therefore, impression may change a little bit.
However, as melody, tone, harmony, and beats mix with the passage of time, their work expresses their background approaches and creative action with their private experiences and emotion.

Their sounds excite my creative action and give me time to face myself just like a painter's work with repeated oil colors.
While they exist in society as a avant-garde way of expressing, I get an opportunity to face myself with their way of expressing.

ライナーノーツより抜粋

「two needles and six wires」は、「アーカイブ」、「ニューク」、「ヌケアナ」と、インプロヴィゼーション主体の前衛音楽のギターリストであり、また金沢の劇団アンゲルスの舞台に、出演、曲の提供など、東ヨーロッパの公演では、その音楽性が高い評価を得た「井ノ上 孝浩」と、DJとしてクラブや野外フェスティバルに参加する他、様々なミュージシャン達と多くのフリーセッションをこなし、ラップグループ「Cosmetic Sugrey Idols」で、断片音の接着と出音技術を担当する「DJ JET SONIC」のユニットである。

混淆することのなかった互いのキャリアは、何時間にも及ぶスタジオでのセッションから、敢えてチープな4トラックのカセットMTRで録音され、二人の作為的な表現方法により、前衛音楽における違和感を淘汰させたといえるだろう。

彼等のアルバムは、決して性急な結論を求めはしない。しかし、このアルバムが、温かくとも冷たくともとれるテーブルに置かれたスープだとしたら、苦く感じるのも、甘く感じるのも、聴き手次第である。

私は抽象的な技法を取り入れた表現作品を前にしたとき、私の内部に持ち合わせる尺度、存在理由が私の内部で喚起されることを愉しんでいる。このアルバムもまた、二人の対極から生じる不協和音や協和的なアプローチを充分に愉しむことが出来た。

聴き始めた当初は、ポリバレントな楽曲が散りばめられ、抑揚のない無調のトーン、全体の統一性ある雰囲気から機微にふれる。やがて詳細に、強烈な自己告白曲であり、またクールで鋭い演奏であると喚起させられていくのだ。この原稿を書いている現
在、最終的なマスタリング後の音源は手元に届いていないので、少し印象は変わって いるかも知れないが、その演奏は、過ぎていく時間軸に、旋律、音色、ハーモニー、ビート、それらの要素を組み合わせる迫間のなかに、彼等の個人的な経験や感情を介入し、彼等の背後にあるアプローチ、即ち創造行為を表現している。

画家が筆をはしらせ、幾重にも重ねた絵の具の輪郭のように、彼等の作り出すサウンドは、私自身の創造行為を刺激し、私自身を対峙させる時間を作り上げてくれる。彼等が前衛的な表現手段で社会の窓口に存在するのならば、私は彼等の表現手段とのやりとりで、自分自身と対峙する機会を得ているのだ。

Innovative and Fun Avant Garde CD
The self titled "Two Needles and Six Wires" is an experimental and largely improvisational avant garde album brought to you by the Japanese duo of Takahiro Inoue and DJ Jet Sonic. The sounds of nature are a big influence in this piece of work. In fact, this is about the only normal thing about this CD. The ride is a wild one, with crazy burping guitar sounds, freakish electronic arrangements, and an overall disturbed tone. These artists did a great job at taking a wide array of sounds and fusing them together in a way that is new, innovative, and fun. Highlights include "Green," with its detuned electric guitar over a soundscape sounding like some strange animal. "Underground" is full of that burping guitar and slippery synths. "Time" features distorted bubble synths and ‘out-there’ bluesy guitar. If you like experimental and improvisational music, give this one a go.
