7FO – Ran-Bouten
CONATALA 004
140 lei
 
Tokyo’s conatala label field a lovely debut of feathered FM synthesis by Osaka’s 7Fo following reissues of World Standard, Pale Cocoon and The Dead Goldfish Ensemble.

7Fo’s 4th solo album is balmy daydream of a record. It slips down very easily, effortlessly eking melodic folk motifs and burbling rhythms from hardware such as Kawai’s 1990 digital and FM synths, an Elektron Digitakt, and Elektron Digitone. Recording in a dark room, 7Fo operates on levels of pure sound sensitivity, heightened by the circumstances to create quietly resounding and tactile shapes with a bat-sonar sense of electro-dub. “When I started working on the piece in March of 2020, I had only decided to record it in the way I wanted to. The coronavirus was spreading globally, and the situation was gradually changing into something very serious. With no gigs scheduled and hardly seeing anyone, I felt as if my spirit was in a slightly deeper place than usual during the production. I sat down in front of my equipment as if I were dropping a fishing line into a quiet lake. I kept feeling that something new was lurking beneath the water surface. I was trying to catch that something that seemed to be just out of reach, that floated in and out of sight like a speck of smoke.”
