Ariel Guzik "Cordiox" [LP]

価格: 2,668円 (税込)
Label: VON - VON 023

これは素晴らしい内容。約1年振りのリリースとなったイタリアVonの2016年LPタイトル。音盤自体は残していないものの活動自体は結構古いらしいメキシコの音響彫刻家Ariel Guzik。なんと全長4メートルという自作の音響塔"Cordiox"なる楽器?の演奏記録。内部に取り付けられたシリンダーを操作し爆発的な共鳴音を生み出すというもので、この録音だけでも異常な層の分厚さを体感出来ます。



Outstanding visionary stuff from Mexican artist Ariel Guzik – the kind of record that's a great introduction to his practice – and a sound relic from his mindbending Cordiox, a monumental stringed instrument animated by invisible magnetic forces.
Cordiox is a four-meter acoustical tower, a hyper sophisticated musical instrument created by Ariel Guzik. In its depths resides a quartz cylinder, which constitutes its central acoustical axis and took up almost half of the budget of this work. Exploring its ever-changing range of tones, drones and resonances Cordiox pushes to listen to his surroundings without the need of any speaker, making invisible resonances become perceptible, woven by a very complex net of wires within, as well as by four interconnected towers that seem to be futuristic reverbs inside a baroque building – reminding us of the scene in 2001: Space Odyssey where the astronaut Bowman, the astronaut, finds himself lost and isolated in the middle of a room decorated in the style of Louis XVI.
