PROFILE

SYSTEM 7はスティーブ・ヒレッジ(Steve Hillage)とミケット・ジローディ(Miquette Giraudy)によるユニットで、彼らはサイケデリック・ダンス・ミュージックの誕生に大きな影響を与え、前身であるプログレッシブ・ロックバンドGong時代から数えると二人のキャリアは40年以上にも及ぶ。

現在もその存在はダンスミュージックのジャンルにおいてテクノとプログレッシブ、そしてトランスの中間点に確固たる地位を築いている。 テクノミュージックにおけるライブを行う最初のアーティストの一組に数えられる彼らは、90年代初頭のロンドンの伝説的イベントMegadog にThe OrbやOrbital、Underworldとともに出演するのを始め、数多くのツアーやclub show、フェスティバルでのライブを行っている。UKグラストンベリー・フェスティバルには1975年から毎回出演しており、特にこのフェスにおける初めてのダンス・ステージの創設にも大きな役割を果たした。そしてそれ以外でもヨーロッパのRoskilde(ベルギー)、 Pink Pop(オランダ)、日本ではFuji Rock、Summer Sonic、渚音楽祭他多数、近年では世界有数のサイケデリック・トランス・フェスティバルである Boom(ポルトガル)やOzora(ハンガリー)、Universo Paralello(ブラジル)など数多くのライブを行う。ここ日本でも1995年の初来日から現在までほぼ毎年コンスタントに来日を果たし、そのオリジナルなパフォーマンスが多くのファンを魅了し続けている。

ここ日本と彼らの繋がりもとても強く深く、2007年手塚治虫氏の代表作である『火の鳥』をトリビュートしたアルバムをリリース。2011年には国内屈指のオルタナティブバンドRovoとのコラボレーションツアーを行い、2013年Rovo and System7名義によるフルアルバム『Phoenix Rising LP』をリリース、国内、アジア、ヨーロッパのツアーを成功におさめる。そして2015年、System 7 / Mirror Systemの2枚組アルバム『N-port / X-port』のをリリース。これは彼らが1994年に同時リリースしたダンス、アンビエントの2枚のアルバム『Fire』と『Water』のリリース21周年を記念した作品となる。その活動はまさにとどまることを知らない。

System 7 at The 1865, Southampton

Come and join us for a happiness inducing feel-good evening of Ambient, Techno and Trance. System 7’s Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy invite you to celebrate their unique sound, featuring tracks from their recent releases and classic favourites - together with some brand new tunes from their forthcoming album.

Steve & Miquette will be playing a long set (1hr 45mins) - starting with some Mirror System tracks and building up to full power System 7, together with DJ sets from good friend and ace DJ Calemma – to provide a full evening’s uplifting entertainment!

System 7, and their downtempo sister project Mirror System, draw on their rich musical catalogue - that also includes many celebrated remixes and collaborations and some elements that reach back to their early Gong material – to create powerful and exhilarating live sets that never fail to lift up the crowd.

System 7’s Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy have had a strong influence on the birth of psychedelic dance music and it’s journey up to the present, forging a unique and bang up-to-date identity on the genre map, in a space where techno, progressive and trance meet – with a healthy side-element of unique quality ambient chill, and the added ingredient of Steve’s psychedelic techno guitar.

Their most recent albums X-Port (by System 7) and N-Port (by Mirror System) were released simultaneously in October 2015 - and the 2017 live shows will also feature new material as well as some classics from previous releases.
