about

Frans de Waard (1965) has been producing music since 1984 (Kapotte Muziek, Beequeen, Goem, Zebra, Freiband, Shifts, Modelbau, etc.). In 1984 he started his own record label Korm Plastics, releasing music from Arcane Device, Asmus Tietchens, Jim O'Rourke among others. He has worked for the pioneering Dutch tape label Staalplaat (1992-2003) and since 1986 as a reviewer for his own publication Vital (now Vital Weekly), a magazine which has been an online source for underground music since 1995, and which celebrated its 1000th issue in 2015. In 2016 Timeless published in France his first book, an autobiography of life in Staalplaat titled This Is Supposed To Be A Record Label. His interests in music creation ranges from ambient to noise to what he describes as 'silly disco music'.

"'Hot August Night' was recorded from August to December 2015. It started in a period of great personal sadness, as my mother was terminally ill. Coming home from a visit to my mother one night, I picked up my iPad and tinkered away on a piano app, which I recorded and gradually transformed over the next months, working on it further after her passing late September 2015. It is not a work of sadness for me, but a celebration of both my wonderful parents and their support for my music over the years, even though they not always understood what it was about. The cover shows a picture my mother made after her retirement."

ジョン・ケージ、カールハインツ・シュトックハウゼン、ジム・オルークを彷彿とさせる実験音楽的な電子音響。
亡き母に捧げる強烈なシンフォーニーがここに登場!
80年代よりアンダーグランウンドな領域で活動を続ける Frans de Waardの最新作,ソロ名義としては初の日本発売!!
ピアノが放たれる瞬間の間と間が東洋の影響を感じさせ、打楽器としてのピアノにフォーカスをあてた、渾身の一枚となっている。
'Hot August Night'は2015年の8月から12月にかけて録音、2015年、Frans de Waardの母親は最後の時を迎えてた。
病院に母親を見舞ったある日、彼はピアノアプリを手に作業を始めました。そしてこの作品は悲しみだけでなく、彼の素晴らしい両親のための
お祝いとするために制作。ジャケットのカヴァーの絵は母親の作品です。
