「Rebirth」レビュー

2013年 Squarepusher Remix Competitionで作品のクオリティと独創性をスクエアプッシャー本人に高く評価された、札幌在住のアーティスト「Yoshimitsu Tsunaki」の1stアルバムをリリースします。
「いつもどこか遠くに手を伸ばしながら作っている感じがあります」と本人が語るように、長年にわたる闘病生活の中で作り上げたその楽曲群は、まるで暗闇の中に一筋の希望の光を見いだすような、凛とした力強さを感じさせてくれます。
新しい始まりを予感させる「Birth」、雄大な世界観をpianaが歌いあげる「光の歌」、白銀の世界を疾走するかのような「Ride」、夏のノスタルジックな夕暮れを思わせる「Lily of the Valley」、そして暗黒からの再生を悲哀と美しいメロディーで表現した表題曲「Rebirth」。
誰にも会えず音楽だけが救いだったと語る日々の苦しみと孤独、儚さや尊さ、その末にたどり着いた生きる事への喜びに満ちあふれた感情が、様々な構成の楽曲群で見事に表現されています。
自身で「Rebirth」と名付けられたこの作品は、彼自身の新たな人生のスタートであり、また本作を聴いた方全ての勇気となる事を強く願っています。

"Rebirth" review

As part of the 2013 Squarepusher Remix Competion, the quality and originality of his work was acclaimed by Squarepusher himself, and now we are pleased to release Sapporo artist Yoshimitsu Tsunaki’s first album.
Tsunaki says, “When I make music, it always feels like I’m working with my hands stretched towards somewhere far away.” True to those words, the songs, made during long years of fighting illness, are like seeing one ray of hope in the darkness, and give a feeling of awesome power.
“Birth” evokes a sense of a coming new beginning. “Hikari no Uta” (Song of Light) shows a sublime worldview sung by piana. “Ride” feels like running like the wind through a silver world. “Lily of the Valley” brings memories of nostalgic summer evenings, and the title track “Rebirth” expresses renewal from darkness with grief and a beautiful melody.
A tale of not meeting anyone, with only music to rely on, through daily suffering and isolation, transience and dignity, then finding a way to emotions about being alive bursting with joy, is powerfully expressed through this collection of compositions.
I truly hope that this work titled “Rebirth” will be a start for a new life for him, as well as giving courage to all those who listen to it.
