There is always a question in our mind. That is how to judge thousands of choices in this era of information explosion. Wisdoms may wander through their stupendous knowledge to find out a way, but mediocrities can only ask for guide from meteors which are slashing the dark night. Even so, that still is just a superficial answer for this question. Things are being ignored all the time. They are not reachable. They just stay there to peep us and give up the subjectivity to hide themselves. They are sneaking after our shadows, enjoying our success or failure, but we are too small to take a glance of their shapes. What are they? They are Phenomenas. No we can not see them, but yes we can use another sense, hearing, to feel phenomenas. We find out objects vibrating then record sound via microphones, instruments and audio technologies. So we add many brand new views to observe and comprehend this world. The new record Phenomena, performed by Chinese band Snapline, is one of those new views. Snapline had already released an album called Future Eyes produced by Martin Atkins (Public Image Ltd.) in the United States. But later in September, 2011, Snapline reproduced 6 tracks form the Future Eyes by themselves with the lable Maybe Mars’ full support. In addition, they put 4 more b-side & new songs into the new album Phenomena. Besides the CD format, the new album is also released in vinyl. This is Snapline’s first vinly released in China. In this new album, the only thing Snapline wants to do is expressing their songs “loud and clear”. For them, it’s a record of choice and thinking, one thing which is more important to them is keeping all sound pure. Presence, tone, rhythm and frequency are all united in one concept. 3 years preparation gathers all their spirits and makes them more impact. Loop beats are going with some random but serious sound, some times energetically but some times silently. Vibration, sound, recording, phenomena, Snapline mix all these things together with high frequency and low frequency.
