marucoporoporo Conceive the Sea

CAT No. FLAU105
Release Date: May 15th, 2024
Format: CD/DIGITAL

2018年のデビュー以来、数年間の沈黙を経て、marucoporoporoのファーストアルバム『Conceive the Sea』がリリースされる。作詞作曲、録音からミキシングまで自身で手掛けるmarucoporoporoは、2022年、画家/映像作家タキナオの展示のための音楽を制作。このコラボレーションをきっかけとして自身のアルバムを完成させた。太古から続く生命の循環を基調のイメージとして、生命の源となる海水と胎児を育む羊水をめぐってアイデアを膨らませ、自身の存在を内省的に見つめた作品となっている。繊細にトリートメントされエレクトロニックな装飾をまとったやわらかくほのくらい音像は、ろうそくの炎を瞼のうらに感じるようにあたたかく、水の中をたゆたうようにゆらめく。

Born out of music created for an art installation in 2022, ‘Conceive the Sea’ is an introspective odyssey exploring artistry and existence, a work carried by thematic currents based on the passing of time and the cycle of life. With an aesthetic essence guided by the imagery of seawater and amniotic fluid, and their connections with origins of life and nurturing ideas of growth, ‘Conceive the Sea’ follows the project’s debut 2018 EP ‘In her dream’.

Fusing off-kilter acoustic guitars with gorgeous vocals that undulate from shaded intonations to crystal-clear high-pitched illuminations, ‘Conceive the Sea’ forms ambient reveries with echoes of gossamer folksong, creating arrangements that seem to float and drift to oceanic depths. Eight tracks representing soft, faint yet subtly absorbing pools of sound, infused with delicately treated electronics. Impressionistic music as warm as the midday sun on closed eyelids; music that shimmers, like bioluminescent marine life, sparkling in the rain.
