A Certain Ratioから離れた彼が、ここまであからさまにブラジル音楽に接近した事に驚いたが、今思えばFactoryとCrepusculeの先進性に脱帽である。1985年当時、モードとしてのJazzに傾倒していたFactoryに新しさを感じられなかったオレのバカ。この後、20数年を経てようやくブラジル音楽に心酔して行くのであった…。

Crépusculeとの出会いは"From Brussels With Love"のカセット版。カセット版2種、CD版3種、2枚組レコード1種を所有するほど影響された。このレーベルのイマジネーション豊かなBenoît Hennebertのイラストに包まれたパッケージと、その幅広い音楽群に20年惹かれ続けている。中でもWim Mertens (Soft Verdict) は Harold Budd、Michael Nymanと並んで特別な存在。Steve Reichよりも叙情的ミニマルとでも言えば良いのか。何だか暫くCrépuscule周辺をアップしそうな心模様。
