about

A Queer Anthology of Drums - "a percussive collage of low-fi frequencies documenting a journey that never took place" (Takuroku), a home recording capturing Valentina's ritualistic free-improv essence, is now being presented to audiences across the world by bié Records, via both streaming services and vinyl for the first time.

*A Queer Anthology of Drums was originally released on Cafe Oto's label “Takuroku” with 8 tracks solely in MP3 format. The new version by the Beijing-based bié Records, whose associate acts range across Hualun, Yu Su, Lim Giong, Gong Gong Gong and many more, is specifically remastered for vinyl format and expanded to 9 tracks with the previously unreleased “She/Her/Gone”.

《异鼓选》,与其说是来自 Valentina 的个人录音,不如说是一场由似有若无节奏构成的 “仪式” 。无需复杂音符的支撑和旋律色彩的渲染,Valentina 仅用一个人操控的简单循环乐句、持续音和错落有致的多样打击乐器,就编织出频率的天罗地网,成功捕捉到彼时空气振动之感,以及听者体内深处的原始反应——如人类第一次感受节奏、接触语言、经历白昼、触碰灵魂时的错愕、惊喜与眩目。

*该唱片最初由厂牌 Takuroku 于 2020 年,以 MP3 付费下载的形式在其网站售卖;现收录此前未发布的额外曲目 “She/Her/Gone” ,经 bié Records 针对黑胶介质进行了全新母带处理后,以实体黑胶唱片和数字流媒体播放的形式首次面向全球乐迷发布。
