NAVICULA Membawa Pulang Album “Tatap Muka” ke Konser Tunggal

NAVICULA membawa pulang keintiman konser peluncuran album “Tatap Muka” di Jakarta bulan lalu ke Bali. Konser-pesta kebun peluncuran album di kampung halaman mereka ini akan diadakan pada hari Minggu tanggal 28 Juni 2015 di Istana Taman Jepun, Jalan Hayam Wuruk, Denpasar.

“Kemarin di Jakarta kan kami cuma bertujuh, kalau nanti bersepuluh,” kata Made pembetot bass NAVICULA. “Sama persis seperti di DVD albumnya,” tambahnya. Dalam album “Tatap Muka”, NAVICULA berkolaborasi dengan 6 musisi dari Bali yang mengisi alunan cello, piano, perkusi, gitar, dan vokal. Jauh dari distorsi khas musik grunge, di dalam album “Tatap Muka” NAVICULA bermain akustik dan direkam secara live. “Tatap Muka” dirilis bulan lalu dalam bentuk DVD. Video dipercayakan kepada sutradara ternama Erick EST, dan audio kepada Antida Music Production.

Bersamaan dengan mengumumkan jadwal konser tunggal ini, NAVICULA merilis single kedua dari album “Tatap Muka” bertajuk “Is Me”. Nomor kedua di album teranyar mereka ini diunggahvideonya keakun YouTube Navicula pada hari Selasa, 23 Juni 2015.

“Kemarin single pertamanya, Merdeka, kan udah lebih pop. Dan sebagian udah familiar sama lagunya karena masuk di (album) Beautiful Rebel,” papar Dankie yang menggubah musik “Is Me” bersama Robi. “Boleh dong kali ini pilih lagu yang sedikit lebih rumit aransemennya,” lanjutnya. Penggebuk drum Navicula, Gembull, juga mengiyakan kekayaan “Is Me”. “Kental warna grunge dan etnik di awal, pop di reffrain, sampai klasik pun ada juga di bridge,” katanya.

Konser tunggal – pesta kebun ini akan dimulai pada pukul 19.00 WITA, pintu akan dibuka pada pukul 18.30 WITA. Tanda masuk seharga Rp 10.000,- dapat dibeli di pintu masuk pada hari H, Minggu 28 Juni 2015.

The Honesty of Navicula in Tatap Muka (Face to Face)

Navicula never stops challenging themselves. After becoming the first band in Indonesia to follow the sound waves of world-class musicians like Jimi Hendrix and Pearl Jam and record at the legendary Record Plant studio in Hollywood, they released their critically acclaimed album Love Bomb, artfully packaged in recycled Tetra Pak materials. Now Navicula embarks into new territory with their eighth album release.

Tatap Muka, the title of Navicula’s latest album, includes eight acoustic arrangements recorded live and released on a limited edition DVD. Navicula left behind the technological convenience and comfort of the modern studio to record the entire album at the historic Setia Darma Mask Museum in Ubud, an acoustically and visually stunning backdrop to capture the nuanced and haunting atmosphere the album’s songs were composed to inspire.

According to the band, sharing a visual experience with the album’s audience is important in Tatap Muka because it conveys, not only the sounds of the music, but also the cultivation of the energy of bodies and instruments in synchronized, creative motion during the album’s creative process. “We wanted to display our honesty,” comments guitarist Dankie. “And the video will greatly help the listener to be able to feel the energy of our music, while also bearing witness to the unfolding of the creative process.”

An additional six musicians accompanied the band for Tatap Muka, enriching the sound with percussion, piano, cello, guitar, and harmonized vocals. “We did not want to overdub on this album. We wanted to record live and to make this a collaborative album, accomplished cooperatively,” says drummer, Gembull. “Luckily, we have many talented friends that could lend their musicianship,” adds bassist, Made.

The song “Merdeka” (Freedom), which was originally released on Navicula’s 2007 album, has been re-arranged and selected as the album’s first single. “‘Merdeka’ represents a universal desire within any number of contexts,” explains vocalist and guitarist, Robi. It could mean freedom from parents or from our workload, from colonial rule, or even spiritual freedom from worldly attachments. We’re actually proud of all of the tracks. As for the next single, we will release the song, ‘Is Me.’”

Navicula entrusted the cultivation process for Tatap Muka to veteran filmmaker Erick EST and the sound experts at Antida Music Production. This album is also the second to be supported by Volcom Entertainment.

Navicula will officially launch Tatap Muka during a solo concert at Pavilion 28, Jalan Petogogan 1 No. 25, South Jakarta on Friday, May 22, 2015 at 7:00pm. Entry is Rp 100,000 (available for a maximum of 100 pax), and tickets are available at Pavilion 28, beginning on May 18, 2015. Each ticketholder will receive a copy of the album DVD.

Tatap Muka is also available for purchase through naviculamusic.com/shop and in record stores in Jakarta and cities throughout Indonesia. Check the complete distribution list at naviculamusic.com/outlets.
