Ollivier Coupille "Fragments and Ramifications" [CD]

価格: 2,167円 (税込)
Label: LOLIGO - LCD001

遂に正規CD作品を自身のレーベルLOLIGOより新たな心意気で1stタイトルとしてリリース!! その凛とした佇まいがデビッド・チュードアを思わせるフランスの激ヤバ電子音楽家Ollivier Coupilleの2020年新作!!1952年フランスはプロヴァンス出身、79年にケージのMesosticsに触発された後デメトリオ・ストラトスのワークショップに参加、その当時小杉武久と電子回路装置の研究にも勤しんだ人物。画像の通り大量の電子機器を複数のテーブル一杯に配置、グルングルンと跳ねる様に渦を巻くライブエレクトロニクスのみを追求し続ける作家であり、本作は間違いなく過去最高のバリエーション及び高内容な一枚。中でもフィードバックを使った持続音は恐らく今回初の試みであり、また2曲目ではノイズファンにも届く凄まじい粒子の爆音放射が聞けます。マスト。

Fragments were recorded in 2019 in Piémont-Cévenol and Ramifications in Paris in
2017.
In 1979 I enrolled in the workshop of Demetrio Stratos at Sainte Baume after hearing a recording he had made of John Cage’s Mesostics. Stratos died soon thereafter and was replaced by Takehisa Kosugi about whom I did not know very much. Little did I know at the time that I would spend a large part of my life connecting circuits and setting up electronic music-making devices.
With Kosugi there were no synthesizers or other apparatuses of that kind, no keyboards or cumbersome computer technology. We were using a branch of technology that had developed haphazardly — without music theory — and that seemed to reproduce certain aspects of living things — such as moss and lichen.
In Fragments several oscillators that generate sounds are interconnected inside a constantly evolving electronic “loom.”
It is difficult to describe the functioning of an oscillator in a world where things cannot be and not be at the same time. When several oscillators are involved, the mind boggles... Engineers have observed that when several wave forms are combined it is possible to obtain visual patterns that resemble ripples on sand or the fluting on cactus and many other things as well. It is the same for sound patterns.
It is easier to describe a shishi-odoshi because the oscillation of a piece of bamboo is much slower, but the functioning is rather similar to that of an electronic apparatus.
Oscillations can be provoked by charging a condenser. When the tension at the two terminals reaches a pre-determined value, a rapid discharge occurs. In the case of electronic music this results in a crackling sound in the loud-speaker membrane but by using other devices there are a thousand ways to modulate these oscillations.
It is very easy to see in these oscillations, as it were, the origin of all living things, the primordial tremor of creation.
Ramifications can only be performed in daylight, as the sound generators are powered by solar cells and natural variations of light play an important role in the process.
