MV: Spring Field (directed and animated by Mitsuo Toyama)

今年1月、遂にデビュー以来初となるライブを敢行し、満員御礼の会場に音と光のユートピアを具現化してみせたSerph。4月には投げ銭制と言うスタイルでミニアルバム『Event Horizon』を発表、更に別名義Reliqでの2ndアルバム『Metatropics』も同時リリースするなど、相変わらず恐ろしいほどの創作意欲で日々新たな音楽を生み出し続ける彼が、次なる一手となるミニアルバム『Spring Field EP』を配信限定にてリリースします。

NII(日本情報産業)のTVCM用に書き下ろされた、ポジティブな高揚感に溢れる表題曲「spring field」と、その元曲であり、nobleレーベル10周年記念コンピ『Invisible Folklore』の冒頭を飾った「departure」。シタールの音色が印象的なエキゾチック・ブレイクビーツ「curry」。ヴォイス・サンプルとピアノが絡む美しいダウンテンポから後半部分への展開も見事な「with you」。スペイン語で「巡礼路」を意味する、どこか神秘的な緊張感に包まれた「el camino」。Serph曰く「幻想世界の旅行者のためのバーチャルガイド、守護天使をイメージした」珠玉の楽曲が並ぶ、全5曲入りのミニアルバムです。

聖ヤコブのホタテ貝のように、幻想世界を巡るシンボルとして、旅先でのBGMとして、Serphの新作『Spring Field EP』をどうぞご堪能ください。



Serph's first concert after debuting, held in January 2014, was a huge sold out success packed with people. It was a utopic vision of illumination and sound. Serph released "Event Horizon", a name-your-price album in April, and on the same day released "Metatropics" under his alias Reliq. Continuing in his frenzied pace of creative passion, Serph has released a digital exclusive mini album "Spring Field EP".

The title track "Spring Field" based on "Departure", the first track of Noble's 10th year anniversary compilation "Invisible Folklore", is an energetic up tempo track created for a TV commercial. The original track "Departure" is also on the album. "Curry" has an impressive exotic breakbeat sound flavored by the Indian sitar. "With you"'s downtempo beat using a beautiful combination of voice sampling and piano leads to an exciting progression in the track's latter half. "El camino" meaning pilgrimage in Spanish is wrapped in a tense spiritual atmosphere. Serph's vision is that this album is a kind of guardian angel, a virtual guide for travelers to a fantasy world.

Like Saint Jacob's scallop shell, as a symbol of a voyage through a fantasy world and as your journey's BGM, fully immerse yourself in Serph's new creation "Spring Field EP".
