大大大推薦。James TenneyとHarold Buddに学んだポストミニマルの現代音楽家にして、アメリカインディアン音楽の専門家であるPeter Garlandが発表した隠れ?名作!!タイトルの通り"月見"をコンセプトとした非常にミニマル且つ静謐なゴング作品であり、薄っすらと浮かび上がる月光の移り変わりを体感する様な、絶妙な重さと反復パターンが続く激激高内容。ミニマルミュージックファン、またAnother Timbre系好きには絶対ハマる一枚です。





Moon Viewing Music (Inscrutable Stillness Studies #1) is a quiet, sparse, introspective six-movement work for three large gongs and a large tam-tam. Performed by celebrated new-music percussionist William Winant, it unfolds with a muted sensuality and a glacial inevitability—as if bent on suspending time. Each of the movements (or individual “pieces,” as the composer sometimes refers to them) has a distinct character, developing in its own fashion—utilizing such traditional means as canons and rhythmic augmentations, as well as more free-form structures.
The composer writes: “Moon Viewing Music is composed for three large knobbed gongs and one large tam-tam. For the gongs I want a deep low sound; but at the same time the relationship between them {and the character of the pieces in which multiple gongs are featured) is essentially melodic. I am not fixing pitches or interval relationships, so as not to limit possibilities (and to accommodate what might be available on hand). But the tonal (and harmonic/vibrational) character of the three gongs is very important.… The gongs and tam-tam should be allowed to resonate and decay freely. At no time should any of them be damped.
