The Silk Road... Caravan pathway connecting East Asia with Mediterranean in ancient times and Middle ages.

For example, it served as a conductor of the spread of knowledge and innovation, including creativity: dance, music, visual arts, architecture, and technology: self-production of silk, gunpowder, paper and more. It was a long road full of beauty and danger.

  1. ロシアンレーベル、USC(United Studios Corporation)より。EtherことAlexey Sirotkinの新しい作品がフリーでリリースされています。2003年から開始されたプロジェクトのようですが、リリースは今作と、ちょうど1年ほど前に同レーベルからでた“Comm”以外、見あたりません。Web上に個人のスペースも見つけられず、詳しい情報は得られませんでした。




    前作でもやはりNew AgeをまぶしたAmbient/Electroniaな作風だったけれど、あちらはコズミックな雰囲気が印象的だった。そちらも素敵な作品なので、下に1曲貼りつけておきます。お聴きください。サウンドはそのままに、作品にあわせてキッチリ描くイメージを変えることができるのは、やはり才能なのでしょう。宇宙やシルクロードといった、いわば自然をテーマに据えることが多いようですが、とくれば、次は深海をテーマにして、やって欲しいですね。
