『京都を拠点にパーカッショニストとして確固たる地位を築く評価の高いサウンド・アーティスト北 航平、その待望となる4thアルバム『Head Towards The Horizon Of Sandy Sea』が完成!』

『前作『Imbalance Order And World』が<動>なら、本作は<静>。アルバムタイトルでもあるM2を筆頭に、全体に流れる淡々と進み行く航海には静かに秘めた熱量を感じさせる。
またM8「Translucent She And The Fact」、M9「I Can Not Remember Blue」は、60年代~70年代前半のジャズを彷彿とさせ、ゆったりとした心地良いグルーヴと寂寥感を感じさせる秀逸の出来映えである。

「今回は、自然の風景や環境音を含め普段意識しない空気や水のようにナチュラルに誰もが共存できる<日常の空気を豊かにする音楽>を紡ぎたい。かつ細部まで丁寧に作り込まれたアートを感じるものにしたかった。」という言葉の通り創られたのがタイトル曲でもある「Head Towards The Horizon Of Sandy Sea/砂の海の水平線へ向かう」であり、まっすぐ水平線に向かって進んでいくという意思と世界観が表されたアルバムとして永遠に続く崇高な響きは特筆に値する。』

If the previous work “Imbalance Order And World” is “dynamic”, this work is “static”.With the same title song M2 as the lead, the voyage going on all the way is felt quietly feel the amount of heat secret.Array Mbira “(a kind of kalimba), which is very rare and beautiful in tone color, and is fully featured, and his precise and thrilling groove and heartbreaking sad melody continue as before Has been done. Throughout the album, it has been constructed with raw sounds such as musical instruments, non-musical instruments, environmental sounds, etc. It sublimates into a work of art that feels ambient tenderness that transforms space.In addition, M8″Translucent She And The Fact” and M9″I Can Not Remember Blue” make it reminiscent of the jazz of the 60 ‘s and early’ 70 ‘s, feeling relaxed comfortable groove and loneliness.”This time, I wanted to make music that enriches the daily air that everyone can coexist naturally like air and water that I do not usually conscious, such as landscapes and environmental sounds, and was carefully built into details I wanted to feel something that feels art. “It expresses intention to go straight towards the horizontal line.
