Julius Eastman "Femenine - Ensemble 0" [CD]

価格: 2,277円(税込)
Label: Sub Rosa - SR501

リリース時からずっと激推しで販売を続けてきた、当店大人気タイトルであるAnother Timbreより出版された黒人作曲家Julius Eastmanの名作[Femenine]。そちらはApartment Houseによる演奏でしたが、本作は老舗Sub Rosaから発表された新しいサウンドビジョンを探求し続ける"Ensemble 0"による演奏。異次元のアレンジを聞かせたApartment House名演に対し、こちらは少しスロー且つ厚みを持たせた暖かみのある重厚な編成を披露。いずれにしてもメチャクチャ素晴らしい演奏内容となっていますので、Apartment Houseと比べてみるのも面白いと思います。超名作。

There was some for John Cage, then came Christian Wolff, and finally Morton Feldman, from this school in New York. Only Julius Eastman remained outside the game, the last figure, the most solitary and enigmatic - undoubtedly also one of the most powerful. And it is this power that is revealed through these recordings. In the 1970s and 1980s, Eastman was one of the very few African-Americans to gain recognition in the New York avant-garde music scene. He was politically committed, a figure of queer culture and a solar and solitary poet whose melancholy influenced his genius as well as his tragic destiny : suffering from various addictions, declared missing, actually homeless. During Winter of 1981-82, he got deported from his apartment by the police, who destroyed most of what he owned - including scores and recordings. He was found dead in 1990, on the streets of Buffalo, after years of vagrancy.

Ensemble 0: Variable geometry group created in 2004. It interprets the compositions of its members and pieces by other composers. The group works with many regular and invited collaborators, being able to change, increase or reduce its lineup at will according to each project. Ensemble 0 has now become one of the most significant ensembles of a new sound vision.

"The end sounds like the angels opening up heaven... Should we say euphoria?" This is Julius Eastman himself, speaking about Femenine, a piece that remains as a big and slow breathing, with something informal driving the listener to a near-hypnosis state. An experiment.
