2017年の先端音楽は実際どうだったのだろう。
ひとつはハード・ノイズの美しい美学とビートレスの雰囲気を融合させたアップデートされた新しい時代意識を持つイギリスのレイヴを2017年のダンスフロアに抽象化したコンピュータ力学的な音楽。
そして伝統的な音楽と映画的なナレーションで構成されたロマン主義が虚空に沈んだような黒い美しさの抽象化である未来的ダークアンビエント(ドローン)。もうひとつは過去の建築と自然共鳴の圧倒的な周波数によって構築された作品から純粋なアコースティック・レコーディング・テクニックに変換しようとしている大胆なコンテンポラリーの実験コーダ。 大雑把に言えばこの3つの潮流が2017年の傾向だっただろうと思われる。どれもが抽象的なノイズ、電磁気変調、フィールド・レコーディング、および既成音楽のサンプルで構成されていて、過去の音楽で培った感性をリセットしなければ聴こえてこない2020年に向かう新しい時代へのかすかな未来がみえる

広告

The New Movement ‎– Zielvorgabe Ohne Zweckbestimmung

Marcel Duchamp、Luigi Russolo、The New Blockadersのような反抗主義者にインスパイアされたグループは、ノスタルジックな感情を持つ新しい形の反芸術を創造する意図が浮き彫りになったが、 彼らが新運動の名前で何かを記録する前でさえすでに「何の哲学もなし」に移行。 彼らの宣言でTNMは、「何の哲学もない」ためにすべてを拒否して破壊し、無意味であるという「根拠」を立証している。

The New Movement :
Inspired by anti-‘artists’ like Marcel Duchamp, Luigi Russolo and The New Blockaders the group emerged from the intention to create a new form of anti-art with a nostalgic feeling but soon moved further into the ‘philosophy of nothing’ and they wrote the manifesto ‘X’ even before they ever recorded something in the name of The New Movement. With their manifesto TNM ‘stand their ground’ to reject and destroy everything for their ‘philosophy of nothing’ and to be pointless as their weapon of choice.
Excerpt from manifesto ‘X’:
‘…There is a world out there ready to be destroyed… This is why we reject the living and resurrect the dead!’
NOTE: DO NOT ADD ANY MEMBERS TO THIS GROUP. All other artists who are ‘members’ of TNM for a particular release should be listed in the Extra Artist field on the release.

Stephanos Vassiliadis ‎– En Piry / Bacchae

ギリシャのエレクトロ・アコースティック音楽の先駆者の1人ステファノス・バシリアディス(b.1933 – 。D 2004)の未発表曲。彼はヤニス・クセナキスと一緒に、1979年に現代音楽研究センター(CMRC)を設立、2004年に亡くなるまで、その作品の多くは未完成または断片化された電気音響作品、および多数の子供の歌を含む文書化されていない演劇のための作品で構成されている。 Vassiliadisはまた重要な教授法とイニシアチブのいくつかはギリシャの音楽教育システムを改革した。

EN PYRI (1973)
Recorded in 1976 by Andreas Rodousakis on double-bass and the composer himself on the mixing desk of Radio Sweden Studio in Stockholm, En Pyri presents a previously unreleased version of Stephanos Vassiliadis’s composition for tape and double-bass written in the memory of Jani Christou. En Pyri was composed three years after a multi-fatal car crash that caused the untimely deaths of Anastasia Vassiliadi (first wife of Stephanos Vassiliadis), Jani Christou (acclaimed composer, close friend and collaborator of Stephanos Vassiliadis) and of Christous’s wife Theresia Christou Choremi. The title En Pyri, translating as In Fire, comes from the First Epistle of the Corinthians “..for the day will disclose it, because it is revealed in fire..”, referring to that what remains after death, or in the composer’s words: “man’s song-creation is the only thing that can withstand and overcome destruction”.

The fire is clearly pictured during a particularly long climax starting midway to the end of the piece. The dramatic aspect of this spectrally dense section is even stronger during live shows, with the performer centre-stage fiercely playing double-bass, but failing to be heard over the full-range audio of the 8-track tape. This staged element of En Pyri is inevitably lost with the reproduction of this recording, but the audio alone carries a heavy load. Sounds as if written out of total need and almost physical necessity to deal with death and loss. At the end of the composition, while the performer is still onstage, a quiet tone is “revealed” and held for a few minutes signifying that what remains; that what is “revealed in fire”.
In most performances of En Pyri, Vassiliadis was on the mixing desk. According to statements of his close friends and collaborators, he would gradually increase the level of the 8-track tape to the point he could physically feel the sound on his body. Needless to say, playback of this track in maximum volume is highly recommended.

HOLOTYPE EDITIONS
Stephanos Vassiliadis – Bacchae
Bacchae was written for a production of Euripide’s tragedy The Bacchae directed [and choreographed] by the distinguished choreographer Zouzou Nikoloudi. This particular play was part of the University of California Intercampus Cultural Exchange Program and was never performed in Greece. From the 25th of September to the 3rd of October 1974, it was staged seven times in different campuses of the University of California (Santa
Barbara, Irvine, San Diego, Riverside, Davis, Santa Cruz, Berkeley) . These seven shows were to become the only occasions this composition was presented to the public.
Bacchae seems to be Vassiliadi’s first attempt in bringing together his background in electroacoustic music with the music he grew up to. He beautifully achieves this by juxtaposing modular synthesizer tones with samples of greek traditional music from his collection of archival recordings. These two elements ebb and flow throughout the composition, at times becoming indistinguishable from each other. The manner in which Vassiliadis mixes acoustic and synth drones together resembles electronic music of following decades. Developed gradually over a duration of 23 minutes of uninterrupted and texturally thick audio, Bacchae is a kind of proto-ambient, folk-drone electroacoustic piece, luckily rediscovered in the archipelago of recorded music.
