ピアニスト林正樹の最新プロジェクトこそ「間を奏でる」なる緩やかな名を持つ音楽集団であります。その名の通り、空間を存分に活かした音の配列、そしてその広がりを音楽条件の一部と見なしているのが特徴です。ジャズクラシック(そしてジョン・ケージ)を根底に持ちつつ、アルゼンチン音響派ミナス環境音楽音響テクノ、もっと言えば俳句からも容易にアクセスできてしまいます。恐ろしく間口の広いこの音楽はその実、間を埋めることで心を一時的に満たすインスタントな音楽の対極に位置するアンチテーゼでもあるのでした。本作はむしろ音量を絞り、没入して聴くべき逸品でございます。

The very latest project by pianist Masaki Hayashi is this music assemblage with the free-and-easy name, "Ma wo Kanaderu (meaning Playing the Time and Space/Timeliness)". As the name suggests, the album is characterized by the sound sequences fully capitalizing 'space', and also for regarding the sonic palette created by such sound sequences as part of the musical conditions of this album. The album lays jazz or classical music (and John Cage) as the foundation, while also being approachable as Musica Frontera Argentina, Minas, environmental music or sound effect-like techno, or going even further, haiku or poetry. This music, with its incredibly expanded entrance can, in fact, be considered as an antithesis that is positioned completely opposite to 'instant' music that provides only temporary satisfaction to the mind by 'filling up (occupying)' the said 'time and space'. This piece of work is a rarity that should be appreciated rather by narrowing down the volume when listening and get completely absorbed in it.
