MACHIDA, YOSHIO - STEELPAN IMPROVISATION SERIES "I" (LP)


"Acoustic Steelpan Improvisation work series. Under the influence of traditional Indian improvised music, Machida has played distinctive improvisation so far. Based on the style, elements of Jazz, twelve-tone and ethnic & folk way are added into these albums. It's an expression of innate characteristic in improvised music: obscurity, limitation and temporality, by "no credit (label), transparent (no colors) limited edition vinyl" release. The tracks doesn't have names. It is a kind of sculpture that reminds of steelpan's clear sound. On side A of Steelpan Improvisation "i", minimal repeated melody (like harmonium) by sine wave functions as a drone that sets up a scale in the piece. On the melody, Machida improvised by steelpan ambiently, with no specific beat. (called alap part in Indian music). Side B of "i", steelpan sound drifts between Jazzy chords woods by Electric Piano."
