about

The World Left Behind is the first full length album from Japanese composer Masako Nakai's moniker Rayons. Recorded in the cold of winter over two days in a european style hall, the ten songs combine piano, flute, clarinet, violin, viola, cello and voice in an elegant style, evolving as if the soundtrack of a ‘70s French movie in a current post-classical style.

Her friend and collaborator Predawn contributes vocals to four songs including 'Waxing Moon' and 'It Was You', which they have also performed live together. Rayons’ dramatic piano arrangements bring out a new and unique quality in Predawn’s voice and her emotional piano performance is powerful and full of grace. The World Left Behind expresses the purity of a girl with delicate femininity and commanding strength, a complete and closed world.

ミニアルバム「After The Noise Is Gone」が話題を呼んだ音楽家・中井雅子のソロプロジェクトRayonsが記念すべきファーストアルバムをリリースします。フルート、クラリネット、ヴァイオリン、ヴィオラ、チェロなど様々な楽器をエレガントにまとめ上げ、70年代のフランス映画のサウンドトラックを現行のポスト・クラシカル・マナーで発展させたかのような、鋭い美しさを讃える全10曲。盟友Predawnが4曲で参加し、すでに彼女のライブでも披露されている「Waxing Moon」や「It Was You」ではドラマティックなピアノ四重奏でPredawnのボーカルの新たな魅力を引き出しています。感情をダイレクトに揺さぶる情熱的なピアノソロ、気品に満ちたストリングスの調べ。閉じられた世界をテーマに、そこに生きる少女のピュアネスを女性らしい繊細さと凛とした力強さで表現したファーストアルバムです。
