Zankyo Record proudly presents Zankyo Jazz. This new category will contain jazz artists that are playing at the frontier of the jazz scene, artists who strive to create the extraordinary, breaking away from the cliche, creating music that is experimental, yet easy for the common ears.

We present “Contemporary Noise Sextet” as our first artist. Hailing from Poland, the sextet explores the very enigmatic borderline of jazz, rock, breakbeats, and lounge music and procreates a raw, chimerical wonder that hints their deep background knowledge in the contemporary music scene. Their first track starts off with a train of cacophony from all the instruments, marking as the perfect gambit. The dissonant blasts gradually increase and suddenly tones down to a very melancholic, bluesy tune and once again reverting back to its jazz-punk/grind core blasts. The second track starts off with Kuba Kapsa on piano leading off with a dark and mellow ostinato, which develops into a dark fusion of acid-jazz and lounge music. The third track is a 10 minute piece, starting off with free jazz, mysteriously floating into a rasterized field of contrabass and drums with ambient hums from trumpet and sax. And as for the rest of the album, we would like you to listen and explore…

Highly recommended for people who listen to John Zorn, Jaga Jazzist, E.S.T., Mr. Bungle, and Medeski, Martin & Wood, or for listeners who are interested in new music.

Asuna - Aihara 1825, City Heim Kiri B-207 (Japanese 2CD Edition)

* Japanese 2CD Edition
Description (Japanese):
リード・オルガンをはじめとする生楽器やエレクトロニクスを使って、牧歌的な楽曲から、美しいアンビエント、ハードコアでサイケデリックなドローン・ミュージックまで様々な楽曲によって、国内外の多数のレーベルから作品を発表している音楽家、ASUNA。
2008年にHEADZからリリースされた圧倒的な内容を持つ2枚組大作の『THIS』、その直後にリリースされた『Flowers』以来となる新作アルバム『相原1825、シティハイム桐B-207』がついに完成。
近年はコラボレーション・ワークや海外へのツアーを中心に活動していたが、東京から金沢へと拠点を移し、この5年間の時間を物語るようにじっくりと練り上げられた楽曲群は、録音時期が97年から2013年までに及ぶものであり、ASUNAの東京時代のみならずこれまでのキャリアを総括するような内容の大作としてここに結実。
非・ドローンとして断続音を100トラック以上重ねた楽曲から、アナログ・シンセのみによる電子音楽曲、様々な楽器による30曲以上の断片をひとつにまとめあげたものから、代名詞とも言えるリード・オルガンの楽曲など、それぞれフォーカスする音楽性や楽器が全く異りつつも、一貫した世界観で聴くものを引き込む大作4曲を収録。
2003年のLucky Kitchenからの正式なデビュー以降、今年で10周年を迎えるASUNAイヤーの幕開けを飾るに相応しい作品となった。
マスタリングは現在エンジニアとしても活躍するdetune./蓮沼執太フィルの石塚周太が担当。
