Les Archives, a whooping gonzo of synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and a mysterious string quartet; composed, arranged, and produced by the elusive Japanese artist June Chikuma is out now via Freedom To Spend.
The 1986 reissue, previously released on Toru Hatano’s Picture Label as Divertimento, so many decades ago, now glows with a different purpose; one that revises the past while maintaining, and finally elevating, its hidden influence. Les Archives is the score for a movie of mistaken identity – clones redressed in a guise of the artist’s re-coding. The legitimate artifact deceives history. There is no original, but this copy is singular and complete.
