about

"Gillyweed" is a non-dance electronic music EP made up of melodies, sounds, and ambient music. It is born out of the improvisational audio program "Microphone Experiments" by 3ASiC. This music sound like naturally flowing out of his producing equipment. In this EP, he recorded the physical vibration in real space, and reconstructed these sounds with digital signal processing, trying to embody human feelings mechanically. This is 3ASiC's first attempt to make his voice an important element, to provide crescendo emotions.

The name of the EP, Gillyweed, is a kind of magical herb from the Mediterranean area, which allows people to have gills, so they can stay longer underwater. When people are surrounded by liquid, isolated from most of the noises, details turn fuzzy and slow. Just as the feelings of this music bring to people, creating a dissociation and isolation from the real world.

"I've once asked about a question: 'Which element in a song (melodies, rhythms, tones, etc.) is the best representation of yourself?' My answer surprised that one: The melody. This answer might not meet most listeners' expectations, because usually, I'm in the face of a 'Bass Music producer'. But to me, melodies are the best representation of me." ---- 3ASiC

《Gillyweed》 是以旋律、声音、氛围为主的非舞曲电子音乐。它诞生于 3ASiC 的「玩话筒」即兴声音项目,这些乐曲彷佛是从作者的音乐制作设备中自然而然流淌出来的。在这张 EP 里, 作者录制了现实空间中的物理震动,并用数字声音信号处理方式把这些声音解构重塑,试图体现机械化的人类情感表达。这也是作者第一次尝试把自己的「人声」作为重要的音乐元素,用来呈现渐进迸发的情绪。

EP 的名字“Gillyweed”,是一种来自地中海地区的的神奇草药,可以让人长出鳃在水里呼吸,因此它有使人长久呆在水下的能力。人被液体容器包裹着的状态下,隔绝了大部分的噪音,细节开始失真、变得迟缓,就像这些音乐带给人的感觉,有一种对现实世界的抽离与局外感。

“有人曾经问过我一个问题:‘在一首歌所有的元素中(比如旋律、节奏、音色等等),哪个最能代表我自己?’我的回答让对方意外了——「旋律」。这恐怕也不符合大部分听众的预期,因为我常常是以低音舞曲制作人的身份面对大家。可其实在我看来,旋律是最能代表「我」的元素。”——3ASiC
