2011年にリリースしたレーベル10周年記念作品『Invisible Folklore』。澁澤龍彦の遺作小説にして国内幻想文学の最高峰、「高丘親王航海記」をモチーフにした全曲書き下ろしのコンセプト・アルバムです。
 
時は平安時代、高丘親王がお供を連れて天竺を目指し、様々な地に降り立っては怪奇と幻想の世界を遍歴するお話。「儒艮」「蘭房」「獏園」「蜜人」「鏡湖」「真珠」「頻伽」の七章からなるこの小説を、各章毎にレーベルゆかりの音楽家、または敬愛する音楽家に楽曲制作を依頼し、各々が担当した章をモチーフに書き下ろした新曲を収録。
七組の音楽家が、感性豊かに一冊の小説の世界を音楽で表現。ジャケット・アートワークは、nobleより映像作品もリリースする画家、nakabanが担当。
 
全7曲、計45分の音の旅。「そうれ、天竺まで飛んでゆけ。」


noble label's 10th anniversary compilation album "Invisible Folklore".
This is a concept album featuring all new tracks themed on “The logbook of Prince Takaoka”, the last novel written by Tatsuhiko Shibusawa and regarded as the acme of Japanese fantasy novels.

The story takes place in the mid-8th century, when Prince Takaoka and a servant set out on a journey headed to the holy land of Buddhism, India. The novel is comprised of seven chapters in which the traveling duo journey through bizarre and illusionary worlds in the many places they stop by on the way. noble has asked musicians with ties to the label as well as those which the label holds high regard for, to create a track, each artist for each chapter.
The exquisite talent of seven musicians comes together in expressing a world of one novel. The jacket artwork is by nakaban, an artist who also releases films from noble.

A journey of sound told in 45 minutes by seven all-new tracks. The imagination is infinite.
