ジ・オブザバトリー『Continuum』/ The Observatory. "Continuum"

Description
【注意】ご来場の際は受付にてQRコードのご提示をお願いいたします。

In July 2015, the band released their 7th long player, Continuum, a gamelan-inspired work that had already been completed shortly after their 5th album Catacombs. This 6-parter, featuring bronze instruments custom built on a unique 6-tone scale, was a result of the band’s 2-year exploration of music from Bali, a creative influence much closer to their cultural homeground. Frequent collaborator Lasse Marhaug also contributed a remix track to close the album.
The music of Continuum remains dark, a thick bewitching stew of interlocking Balinese-African rhythms, prog rock, early electronic music, and trance, marked by the use of repetitive figures and tuning variations to create cyclical vibrations known as “beats”.

ジ・オブザバトリー(シンガポール)

シンガポールを拠点とするエクスペリメンタル/プログレ・ポストパンク/ネオサイケ/ダークウェーブ/アヴァンロックバンド。「ジ・オブザバトリーを現在構成しているのは変化するリズム、シンセベースの空間性、オシレーター、痛めつけられるギター。リフの核心には反復があり、いくばくかの真実をたたき出す。ノイズ、ロック、そしてメランコリー。動揺し分断された共同性。抑圧の新たな形式が抵抗の新たな戦略とぶつかり合う場所。アルバム『Oscilla』は我々の不完全な時代の想像的な揺らぎである。我々が体現する見えない獣の足どり。絶え間ない変化と不定形さ。それは新しい希望を示してもいる。声なき者たち、力なき者たち、貧しい者たちのために立ち上がる。収益と呼ばれる数学的規範以外に良心を持ち得ない現在のリアリティに対抗して、より勇気ある未来を想像する。我々の音楽は、我々の現在=未来を取り戻そうとするものだ。我々がどこに向かうのか、それはどのような環境的、道徳的代償を払ってなのか、決断するべきときが来ている」。

The Observatory (Singapore)

Experimental / Prog Post-punk / Neo-psychedelia / Dark-wave / Avant-rock band based in Singapore. “The current constellation of The Observatory are vibrations of shifting rhythms, synth bass space, oscillators and abused guitars. Repetition is at the heart of their riff. Hammering out a certain truth. Noise, rock, and melancholy. A society in tumult, divided. Where new forms of oppression are actively met with new strategies of resistance. Oscilla is the imagined swing of our imperfect times. The gait of the invisible beast we embody. Flux and formlessness. It represents a new kind of hope. Standing up for the voiceless, powerless, the poor. Imagining a braver future against the current reality that has but only a mathematical conscience called the bottom line. Our music is about wresting back our now-future. Where we want it to head towards, and at what environmental and moral cost, we should start deciding for ourselves.”
