●HACO 8th album NOVA NATURO website ☁
「NOVA NATURO」特設サイト
www.hacohaco.net/haco/nova_naturo.html

“On Nova Naturo, Japan’s Haco expands her already divergent song craft into a zone that meshes field record-ing, electronics and layers of floating voice into an imagined sound environment that encourages a sense of a deepened interior terrain. Haco’s work in groups including the now legendary After Dinner and Hoahio have earned her a unique and respected position in the Japanese music communities, but it is with her solo work that she has unlocked an utterly unique and deeply personal approach to sound.

Drawing inspiration from mythologies surrounding ideas of rebirth, Nova Naturo propagates a sense of ambience, but arrives at this sensation without dwelling in the aesthetics of ambient music. Rather, Haco combines unexpected elements, and uses these combinations to refocus our ears and invites us to listen closely, but with a sense of relaxation. This record is not a labour and instead suggests a kind of release from labour, an open-ing out into place, into the human experience of exploration and the rewards that come to those present in the moment. “
ーSomeone Good

「HACOは、深淵な内的領域へと導くような、心に描いた音風景ーフィールドレコーディングやエレクトロニクスや幾層にも重ねたヴォイスで編みだされた曲作りを展開している。本作「NOVA NATURO」では、さらにその世界感が拡がっている。彼女の作品群は、伝説的アヴァンポップ・バンドAFTER DINNERやHOAHIOなどの活動を通じて、比類なきレスペクトを獲得しているが、ソロ作品として音に対する深くユニークかつパーソナルなアプローチが、ここでは解き放たれている。

新生 (rebirth) にまつわる神話などのインスピレーションから描かれているNOVA NATUROは、アンビエント・ミュージック美学の枠におさまらないところに帰着している、にもかかわらずアンビエンス感は増殖している。むしろHACOは、意外性のある要素を結合させ、これらの組み合わせで私たちの耳を開かせ、リラクゼーション感覚をもって、耳をそばだたせるように誘っている。このレコードは努力ではなく、ある種努力からの解放のすすめ。心の成長、人生の探究の経験やこの瞬間に存在していることへのご褒美。」ーSomeone Good

“A voice is floating, almost within reach, travelling as if a physical being, moving far away yet always here, so close as to be inside, spinning inside each lantern, flickering light.”
ーDavid Toop

「夢と現実の狭間の
秘密のNova Naturo。
生命のリズム、色んな色の音の花、エコーのそよ風。
蔦に覆われたプレーヤーから
凛としたHacoさんのささやき声が
いつまでもいつまでも、こだまする。
今日は、未来の自然と過去のテクノロジーとが
生命の瞬きを喜び合う初めての日――」
ーMoskitoo
