ESP アルバム レコ発
11月11日にロンドンの229で行われたトニー・ロウとマーク・ブレゼジッキーのプロジェクトESPのデビューアルバム「Invisible Din」のレコ発ライヴにハープで参加しまして、そのときのレビューが出ましたのでこちらに貼っておきます
私はオープニングアクトとして30分のハープ弾き語りのソロセット、それからメインセットでレコーディングに参加した曲で演奏しました

First on stage was Yumi Hara, standing in as the support act and who would later take to the stage with the band. Normally a pianist, Hara had recently taken up the harp (think the Jon Anderson-sized harp used on Olias of Sunhillow and Going for the One), performing material from collaborations with Artaud Beats bandmate and ex-Henry Cow drummer Chris Cutler. Her songs may have been brief but they were laden with poignancy; an effect enhanced by the delicate tone of her instrument and the oriental scales she used.

私の使ったスケールはドリアンモード、全音階、普通の長音階などだったのですが、オリエンタルスケールって聴こえるんですね、顔と名前がオリエンタルだと。
以前から気がついていた現象です。

「Invisible Din」は私の初のハープのセッションレコーディングで、6曲目「Searching the Banks for a Memory」のイントロ部分でソロを弾いています。 トニーはデヴィッド・クロスの古い友人で、2007年の私とデヴィッドのデュオコンサートに来てくれて知り合い、2010年にデュオアルバム「Dream of the Gryllidae」をリリース、2015年にはデヴィッド・クロスの「Starless Starlight」レコ発で共演しています。今回はそのとき以来デヴィッド・クロス、デヴィッド・ジャクソン、トニー・ロウ、そして私のStarless Starlightメンバー全員が揃いました。
マーク・ブレゼジッキーはビッグカントリーのドラマーです。
その他レコーディングとこのレコ発に参加したのはデヴィッド・クロス、デヴィッド・ジャクソンをはじめGTRとかトーヤのフィル・スポルディングとか、有名人ばかりで有名人過ぎて私にはよくわからない世界でありました。

ソロセットは隣の会場の音が大きすぎて漏れてきて大変でしたががんばりました
アルトービーツのLOGOSからの歌ものを弾き語りにした曲を中心に、2枚目のソロアルバムに収録予定の曲と、Dalston Ballet CompanyのためのIn Byron's Footsteps (この曲だけは最初からハープ弾き語りで作ったもの)などをやりました。初めてのキーボードなしのハープ弾き語りセットだったのでとてもよい経験になったと思います。

Starless Night is a celebration of the May release of the David Cross and Robert Fripp album ‘Starless Starlight’ (Noisy Records NOISY 007).

The story of ‘Starless Starlight’ is that of a short melody composed by David Cross and Robert Fripp that emerged as one of the key themes of the King Crimson song ‘Starless’ (1974). The tune resurfaced in two improvisations performed and recorded by Fripp at Blueberry Hill, St Louis in 2006. These recordings and the theme itself were then transformed by David Cross (and co-producer Tony Lowe) into the album ‘Starless Starlight’.

Yumi Hara (The Artaud Beats) , David Jackson (ex-Van der Graaf Generator) and Tony Lowe (Producer\ Guitarist) will join David Cross (ex-King Crimson) in performing new versions of music from this album and, in keeping with the spirit of this venture, will individually and collectively devise, compose and otherwise create original new interpretations of the Starless theme – the brief is broad and the musicians are up to the task.

Anything could happen... and probably will – expect the unexpected!

David Cross is an internationally respected rock musician and improviser with a discography of more than 40 albums. David was a member of the legendary ‘Larks’ Tongues’ version of King Crimson and has performed in Europe, USA and Japan. In recent years he has performed at Athens Conservatory of Music, at festivals in Poland and Italy and most recently (April 2015) with Stick Men in Japan.

David Jackson was in Van der Graaf Generator for a long time! After much acclaim and recognition, Melody Maker christened him ‘The Van Gogh of the Saxophone’ way back in 1971. He has also played with Peter Gabriel, Peter Hammill and Keith Tippett and released many solo albums. David is also well known for his mastery of Soundbeam and his international work in the field of music and disability. After Tomorrow’s World in 1997, the BBC christened him ‘The Soundbeam Guru!

Massive VdGG success in Italy still means regular recording and live spots with Italian Progressive Rock Bands in Europe, America and Asia. Osanna, Aldo Tagliapietra, Alex Carpani Band, ReaGente 6, Playing The History, Pandora and Twinscapes are very recent associates. It was at such a Prog Festival in Verona in 2010 that DJ met David Cross on stage for an emergency duo set. The rest is history. Cross & Jackson’s first band album is due for release in 2015. It will be such a thrill for DJ to join this exciting band and add his own interpretations of the Cross masterpiece at the ‘Starless Starlight’ concert in Balham.
