 すでにご存じの方が多いかも知れないが、アーロン・パークスの水戸公演の音源(非圧縮、AIFF)がネットで公開されている。ツアーを通じ、彼が思うような演奏が出来て、嬉しかったようだ。

 スマートフォンで録音し、低音を強調する処理を加えたような、まさに客席録音のブート音源のようなものだけど、聴ける。という来歴なので無料、らしい。

 緊張感が漲った、というよりも、少しリラックスしたような演奏を聴くことができる。

パークスのコメント:

Last December, I played some trio gigs in Japan with Thomas Morgan and RJ Miller. Over the course of the tour we found a way of making music together that felt really good to me. On the last night, we played a show in Mito City and I recorded it on my phone. The quality of the audio certainly isn't the most hi-fi, but there's something about the vibe of Voice Memos that I've always liked, and after doing a bit of mastering work to boost the low frequencies, I think it doesn't sound too shabby.

Anyway, here it is. You can have it. Just enter your email address and you'll be sent a download link. If for some reason you feel compelled to contribute something, consider donating to a charity in Japan (or elsewhere in the world), or buying someone else's record with the money you didn't spend on this one. There's no high concept here; this recording is basically a bootleg of the three of us playing some tunes, a documentation of something that happened which I felt like sharing (imperfections and all). Hope you enjoy.

And stay tuned...there's more music on the horizon this year.
