Corrado Canepa "Syntheseis" [CD]

価格: 2,607円 (税込)
Label: Old Mill

イタリア産の埋もれた電子音楽作品の中で最も稀少且つ伝説となっていたらしい、自国の作曲家Corrado Canepaによる唯一の音盤[Syntheseis]。オリジナルは1979年に作家自身の手で制作され、本当に極一部の界隈で出回っていた模様。コンピューター中心の電子音楽ですが、本作の魅力は所謂"洗練"や"作り込んだ"ものとは違い、プラスチックチューブ、ポリスチレンプレート、電話、ボロボロの伝統楽器など、ほぼがガラクタを用いて音響合成したプリミティブな作風で纏めている部分。楽曲にも様々な要素が盛り込まれ、かなり雑多で意味不明、笑える展開なども多くあり。コレはかなり重要な盤だと思います。お見逃しなく、マスト。

One of the rarest & most legendary electronic privately pressed album from Italy has been finally reissued.
If only its existence were known, this would be the so-called holy-grail of obscure electronic / experimental / musique concrete albums!! Issued in 1979 in an extremely limited private release - with (clumsily) hand-written titles on plain white hand-numbered sleeves and a xeroxed sheet with notes pasted on the back cover - by italian composer Corrado Canepa of superb pieces of tightly conceived but primitive sounding and often evocative and puzzling electro-acoustic music and text-sound composition.

Corrado Canepa is such a kind of musician, whose sound projects are self-realized, creating directly on the tape the sound chosen for every composition. The global control of the whole process of artistic production allowed by the electronic instruments offers him the possibility of realizing his conception of composition as freedom and «handicraft».
Syntheseis, a collection of eight sound scenarios projected & produced in 1979 with the collaboration of Cristina Rossi, is a good example of his aesthetics: he didn’t use computer but only less sophisticated analogical instruments employed at the best of their potentialities: his research means a challenge to the limitations of instruments he often invented & built.
Syntheseis means etymologically «combinations, mixtures», simply: «compositions». We can listen together (electronically elaborated) the oldest traditional instruments – voice, Pan Flute, drums, xylophone, performed by Cristina Rossi –, noises extracted from contemporary materials & objects – plastic tubes, polystyrene, plates, telephones – and electronic synthesized sounds. A peculiar research in stereophonic sound spatialization is a fundamental part of composition.
