about

The One Two Bird And The Half Horse' is the second album from Orla Wren. Recorded over the last two years in the environs of an isolated cold water cottage in the Scottish hills, it develops Tui’s happy obsession with rendering the minutiae of nature into sonic form, combining the oldest, wonkiest most organic of possible sound sources, instrumental or otherwise, fashioned into textures of pinprick detail. A wide array of stylistically disparate musical and vocal collaborators, from places as varied as Japan, the Georgian Republic and 'down-home' U.K., lend their weight to the process, alternately spooking and soothing the music, filtered through Tui’s “wires” into an intensely colorful democratic weave.

Orla Wren is a dream child. It’s surfaces may be brilliantly modern, but it’s soul is ancient and gently unfolds itself in a contemplative manner, revealing the antiquated isolation of the environments that have inspired it.

”It distils sublime wood smoke folk atmosphere and pointallist digitalis to the subatomic level, until it becomes effectively the same stuff that makes brooks babble and winds whisper. It’s the music that Fennez and Lau Nau might make after a night laying beneath the glittering constellations.” - Dave Sheppard


英国出身のアーティストOrla Wrenの2作目。アコーディオン、チェロ、オルゴール、鉄琴、シタール、ダルシマー、フルート、クラリネットなどの様々な古典楽器と、ラップトップによるプロセッシングが組み合わさった幻想的なサウンドスケープは、デビュー作からより深みを増し、まるで東欧の奥深い森の中から聞こえてきたような、不思議な魅力を持っています。
本アルバムの特徴として、多彩なボーカリストの参加が挙げられるでしょう。ポストMeredith Monkとして、現在世界中から注目を浴びている東欧の若手ボイス・パフォーマーRussudan Meipariani、フリー/即興シーンで活躍する英国出身のジャズ・シンガーJessica Constable、そして日本からSmile Down Upon Usのmoomloooなど。
「Lau NauとFenneszが出会ったようだ」とも評される繊細なサウンド・トリートメントと個性溢れる歌声が見事に組み合わさった、21世紀のクラシック・フォークです。
SLOWDIVEのSimon Scott、State River Widening、Phelan/Sheppardのメンバーとして活躍するKeiron Phelanがゲスト参加。
