about

▼WV012/060: 若潭 ruò tán - 石 Stone

巨石原野 意識最深處

"From darkness to light, and light to dark, drones and noise lead to cacophonous elevation and inevitable vertiginous fall. The music of 若潭 ruò tán introspectively explores minimalist percussion and experimentation of the sonic textures and effects, drawing the listener through the intense, crawling abyss of consciousness. A ritual of deepening, leaving naught but emptiness in its wake."

「從黑暗走向光明,反之亦然。從噪音和長音中取出一個整體的聲音,上升,之後是眩暈般的墜落,若潭的音樂在內省和實驗中冒險。通過極簡的打擊樂和效果器的使用,描繪出一種激烈的潛行感,通向意識的最深處。一場深邃的儀式,也留下空白。」

"Des ténèbres vers la lumière puis inversement. Puisant dans le drone et la noise un ensemble de sons menant à l'élévation puis à la chute vertigineuse, la musique de 若潭 ruò tán s'aventure sur le terrain de l'introspection et de l'expérimentation, utilisant les effets et les percussions minimalistes pour animer une intense reptation vers le fond de la conscience. Un rituel profond laisse place au vide."

- N.K.R.T
