Many of albums releases in 2018 and 19 were really good, and when I was listening to everything, I listened to an album called "abyss kiss" by an artist , Adrianne Lenker.

When I heard the acoustic guitar arpeggio in the intro, I immediately thought, "Oh, this is a good album." Then a singing voice came in and it turned into conviction.


If you think about it, Tenniscoats also have this pattern. A singing voice comes in from the arpeggio of an acoustic guitar.

But what if the voice doesn't come in? Will the listener wait forever for the voice that should come in forever?

Or do you wait for the voice in the corner of your heart thinking that this is good?


There is no voice in this album at all. But even if I listen to it to the end, I feel that the performance is still going on, and I feel that the voice will come in soon.

I made this album because I wanted to listen to such a work.

2018年、19年の洋楽のリリースは本当にいいものが多くて、色々と片っ端から聴いていた時、Adrianne Lenkerという人の「abysskiss」っていうアルバムを聴いた。 イントロでアコースティックギターのアルペジオが聴こえた時にすぐに「ああ、これはいいアルバムだな」と思った。そして歌声が入ってきて、それは確信に変わった。


思えばテニスコーツもこのパターンが多い。アコースティックギターのアルペジオから声が入ってくる。 しかし、声が入って来なかった場合どうなるか?聴く人はいつまでもいつまでも入ってくるはずの声を待ち続けるだろうか?それとも、これはこれでいいね、と思いつつ心の片隅で声を待つのか?


この作品は最後まで声は入って来ない。でも最後まで聴いても、演奏はまだ続いている気がするし、そのうち声が入ってくるような気もする。 そんな作品が聴きたいなあ、と思って作りました。
