Machinone Pieni

CAT No. FLAU75
Release Date: November 7th 2018
Format: CD/DIGITAL

ある作家のエッセイから着想を得た『小さい、小さな』という意味を持つMachinoneのセカンド・アルバム。
東京の西側を描いたファーストアルバムに続き、今回もガットギター、改造オルゴール、バンジョー、クラリネット、ミニピアノ、リードオルガンなど様々な楽器を使って、幼き頃の景色や感情、寂寥の記憶達を散らばった欠片を拾うように、慈しみながら奏でられたパーソナルな作品集です。
細流に浮かべた笹舟、鉄塔を辿る小さな冒険、木漏れ陽の在処を記した地図。アルバム全編に散りばめられたオルゴールの音色からは宝物のような小石のイメージが立ち上がり、プリペアド・ギターがぼやけた光の模様を淡く描き出す。TC2610、レプソルド、水琴鈴、どこか壊れて調子外れの楽器や古びたオブジェで奏でられる楽曲は、五感をつつき、想像力を波うたせる。そこに広がるのは、どこにでもあるようでないような、小さな町の物語。

Pieni, Machione’s second album, means “small” or “little”. This title was inspired by an essay written by Japanese author. In the same fashion that Machione’s first album portrayed the western area of Tokyo, the artist again plays an array of instruments, such as the gut guitar, clarinet, banjo, and reed organ. His compositions and musical stylings show a deep emotional bond to pieces of scattered memories – scenes, and adventures from his childhood, and the loneliness of living alone in Tokyo. Machione precisely paints musical visions of each, and together, they reveal his persona in this evocative album. A child’s toy boat made of bamboo leaves drifts down a small rivulet, an exploration by following a rope between the steel towers. The tones from a music box sprinkled through the album evoke images of colorful pebbles. A prepared guitar’s song paints a pattern of blurred light. TC2610, repsold, water harp bell, broken, untuned and an old, decorative object…the songs that these unique instruments sing fluidizes our senses, and swings our imaginations. This panorama exhibited before us by Machione are scenes from a small town, one that you might have visited some time.
