Liner Notes
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Tak mau kalah dengan toko buku bermutu yang nyambi jualan rekaman musik, kami menyuguhkan sebuah album yang berisikan ilustrasi musik sebuah film independen yang keseluruhan musiknya digarap oleh musisi kesayangan kami, Shorthand Phonetics! 1 lagu dari album ini yang berjudul When Women Congregate telah dirilis dalam kompilasi Music Beyond No Borders Vol. 2. Komposisi lagu dalam album ini lebih eklektik dibanding rekaman sebelumnya. Hal ini sepertinya telah dirancang sebelumnya untuk membangun komposisi yang sesuai dengan emosi dan nuansa pada narasi dan alur cerita film. Sutradara film ini menjadi orang yang sangat beruntung karena tak banyak produksi film indie yang ilustrasi musiknya digarap dengan sepantasnya seperti ini.(Wok The Rock)

We never want to leave behind from a qualified book store that also sold records.That’s why we present this album which contain an independent movie’s music score from our favourite musician, Shorthand Phonetics! One of the songs in this album, When Women Congregate, had been released in Music Beyond No Borders Vol.2 compilation. The songs composition in this album was more eclectic than the previous records. This character were designed to build a suitable composition with the emotion and the ambience in the film’s naration and storyline. This independent film director were very lucky to had a well-produced music score, when not many independent movie had it.

Shorthand Phonetics
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
The band started in early 2004 in a Performance Arts class room in a Christian private school in the obscurity of Sentul, Indonesia when Ababil Ashari (vox, guitar, bass, drum, programming) handed Kevin Yapsir (guitar, vox, programming) a sheet music for Radiohead’s “Everything In Its Right Place” to read because Ababil cannot read sheet music. The next day Ababil and Kevin practiced the composition attracting future band members Alvin Lasmana (drum), Alfonsus Tanoto (bass) and Daniel Sastro (guitar). Needless to say, the Radiohead cover attempt was a disaster. But from it, a band was born.

This five-piece line-up lasted for two years, yielding several singles and EPs. It became apparent that the band can’t continue as it was. This was because most of the band had committed to studying overseas after high school. So, as a final hurrah, the band released “Fanfiction: From the Seriously Absurd to the Absurdly Serious” (an album-based upon unfinished fanfiction Ababil wrote in his spare time) in April of 2006 to a lukewarm response. The band disbanded giving Ababil the rights to the band name.

At this point, Ababil was busied by med school and turned to for relief. He wrote a general mock-up of a author-surrogate character named Hanabishi Hideaki and wrote a couple of unreleased short stories. Frustrated with his inabillity to finish these short stories, Ababil wrote them as songs instead. This proved to be a success and Ababil revived the Shorthand Phonetics name.

Ababil proceeded to write and record “Apparently…I’m In Medicine / Love, or the Illusion of the Beginning Symptoms of It” (an album about Hanabishi Hideaki’s first year of med school) and released it in May of 2007. Reaction to the album was better than expected. Fledgling Indonesian netlabel Yes No Wave Music offered to re-release “Apparently…” to the Indonesian public four months after the albums original release.

After the re-release of “Apparently…”, Ababil started to write songs and concepts that centered around Hanabishi Hideaki and repair the continuity. Fanfiction was retconned as a collection of fanfiction written by Japanese national Hanabishi Hidaki to fit with Hanabishi Hideaki’s story. The culmination of this new project (currently titled “Errors in Calculating Odds, Errors in Calculating Value”) has not seen the light of day…but hope is abound.

So, what’s next for Shorthand Phonetics? Stay tuned to find out!
