- PROFILE (JP)

ドイツMille Plateauxより2011年にデビューを果たし逆輸入された電子音楽家Yu Miyashita。国内のオリジナルコンテクストアートレーベルmAtterや、オルタナティブエレクトロニクスを標榜し既存の概念から逸脱した革新的な電子音楽作品を発表するCDレーベルSIGNAL_DADAからのリリースでも知られている。2012年に発表された映像作品"Lucio Arese | Yu Miyashita - Mimic"は、Ars Electronica Animation Festival (オーストリア)、Athens Video Art Festival (ギリシャ)、International Film Festival Of Cinematic Arts (アメリカ)、Saatchi New Director's Showcase (フランス)、SIGGRAPH (シンガポール)等、世界各国の多数のフェスティバルで選出、ノミネート、上映され続ける事となる。2015年9月、shotahirama主宰するSIGNAL_DADAより国内初フルCDアルバム"Homage"をリリース。


- WORD

"Miyashita plays Jekyll and Hyde"
- Bleep
 
"While the glitch pioneers tended to favour a stripped down minimalism, Miyashita takes advantage of advances in processing power to create maximalist symphonies of jittery orchestral samples, granular synthesis and dense textural wash. --- his complex creations are well crafted and worth checking."
- Cyclic Defrost
 
"Esoteric excursion"
- Igloo Magazine
 
"A jarring mix of ethereal soundscapes and abrasive noise."
- The Quietus
 
"Yu Miyashita's music hits you like a wave, in which each droplet of water is replaced by a string of digitized code. When first hit, it is impossible to decipher anything but raw emotion and sound, such is the seemingly impenetrable structure of it, resplendent in white noise mutated by the human hand."
- Silent Ballet
 
"Haunting the listener in short bursts of deathly hymns."
- Stray Landings
 
 
- WORD (JP)

"「音楽は言葉に出来ない」という文句はドイツロマン派の詩人が言い出した事らしいが、"言葉"が"意味"を意味するものだとするならば、意味としての楽音具体音や、その構成の歴史的背景を記述する事は可能だったかもしれないし、主観的だとしか思えない曲想に対しても、今や(イデアルな)複数の標語が存在している。現在に於いては音楽を言葉にする事は、それをそのままトレースしたものではないにせよ、不可能な事では無いようである。 この作品 Yu Miyashita "An Arc" は、目紛しく動く音像や切断が繰り返される音響に注目するのならば、ある音を録音加工再構成しそこに新しい意味や響きを見出す、具体音楽から連なる歴史の影響を感じられるだろうし、その意味の衝突や重層に、単なる羅列では済まされないある曲想を見出す事も出来るのかもしれない。 しかしながら、これはラップトップミュージックのある到達点であると思うのだが、波形としてしか実在しない、あまりに抽象的な音の連続は、その背後に隠れる"意味"を見出す事を敢えて拒み、即ち"意味"からの逃走を繰り返し続けているように聴こえるし、そしてその響きは複数の層となりながらも、単一の平面を持ちえず、多面体として、時として複数化しながら、しかし連続を保ちながら、響き続けている。その様は名指されるような、既成の曲想へと回収されるのを拒んでさえいるようでもある。 なのでここに、残念ながら、私が何かを書き付ける事がこの作品に対して何らかの位置を占める事すら出来ないだろうし、修辞による漸近線すら描けないように思える。幾度となくこの音源を聴いて解ったのは、この音楽は決して音色や位相に関して言及する事で片付けられるようなものではない、という事くらいだった…。 "ある弧"と名づけられたこの作品は、その名の通り、決して全体を把握する事のできない巨大な音楽という"円"の確実な、しかし不定の、"弧"として存在しているようである。"
- Kosuke Numakura
 
"自然と涙が出た。振動無くして伝わる音など無い。彼の音楽には、肉体と精神を揺るがす振動と、崩れ逝く世界が置き去りにした情緒が確かに残っている。"
- Shohei Tsuda
 
"崩壊する新建築に映える高度な物理現象とグリッチやらの歴史的背景からまるで脱臼したかのように旧プラトー形式の理論を無視した音楽構造。マス、アート、近年のネットコミュニティを中心としたポストカルチャー、そして彼の制作活動すべてに生じる大きな差異ひとつひとつこそが Yu Miyashita のオルタナティヴモデルたる所以であり、そしてそれが人を魅了する大きな理由でもある様に思える。今後もその構造領域の拡大が楽しみなアーティスト。"

"Drudged Torn Routine" on American Detroit Underground has been picked for Top Albums 2014 on French SWQW Magazine. In 2015, Bookat commented on "Grind Analysts Fig. 1" from British Stray Landings that "Somehow elegantly weightless yet utterly bombed out and forceful / The most deviant breakbeat techno of 2015 so far". Same year sees both "A Hectic Truer" on Ukrainian FF' Space and "Eye / Hand" on the Detroit Underground. Miyashita has produced a tailored track for MTV International Ident, a part of MTV International Rebrand 2015.

"Somehow elegantly weightless yet utterly bombed out and forceful / The most deviant breakbeat techno of 2015 so far"
- Boomkat
 
"Digital art star, beatsmith / sound artist"

"Like a dance record cultivated in the dark, nurtured away from conventional genre expectations."

"Esoteric excursion / A strange, hypnotic creation that sounds timeless, as if droning on for longer than you’ve been alive."
- Igloo Magazine
 
"It is like an extraordinary Joan Miro's abstract art painting "The Song Of The Vowels"" where symbolic reduction of the flexible and unexamined forms create a thrilling fiction of existentialism. These controversial interpretations that vary among the agility, simplicity, joy, whimsical charm and nightmarish distortions undoubtedly mirror the versatility, intensity and profundity of Yaporigami. His music somehow reflects a current constant stylistic mutation and renewal of Techno scene."
- Secret Thirteen
 
"We quickly realised that his work was some of the most unique music we had heard in some time"
- Stray Landings

"このコメントを書くにあたって…というわけではないが、氏には事前に色々とお話をする機会があった。制作に対するスタンスから美の価値基準に至るまで、決して長いやりとりではなかったが、実のある対話であったと思う。対話の途中で自身の楽曲がいわゆる普通の意味で「音楽的」ではないという発言があり、以前何度か聴かせて頂いた楽曲をイメージすると―決して悪い意味ではなく、確かに…と頷けるものがあったが、今作を全部通して聴いた第一印象は真逆で、”ポップだな”というものであった。何度か聴いていく内に、時間軸に対しての神経の使い方が非常に絶妙で、それによってすんなりと音が入り込んでくるところがポップな印象を与えているのではないか、と自分なりに思い至った。もはや古典的な美術評論といっても差し支えないであろう某論文のタイトルに准えれば、アヴァンギャルドさとキッチュさのバランス感覚が良い(その論文ではキッチュさは忌むべきものとして描かれてはいたが)。さて、くだんの氏とのやりとりでは人によって美の捉え方が異なることの問題にも話が至ったのだが、僕は単純にこの作品を美しいと思うし、恐らくこの作品を手に取る人の大半はそう感じるはずだ。実験的な音の中に、普遍的な美の一端を垣間見ることが出来る良い作品だと思う。"
- Taro Peter Little
 
"私にとってPOPとは様式でも旋律でも和声でもなく、知識/技術/時間/言語の範疇を超えて否が応でも人を魅了し納得させてしまうもののことです。彼のグルーヴ、そしてノイズはPOPです。"
