Koyuki: neauzitul din-tre noi

Infinit de multe. Insa, paradoxal, chiar daca sunt atat de multe, nu trebuie sa ne speriem ca nu le vom putea niciodata cuprinde, surprinde, intinde. Koyuki este mai mult decat un label. Este o poarta de intrare catre lumea fascinanta a microsound-ului.

Multe dintre lucrarile artistilor din cadrul familiei Koyuki au o caracteristica comuna: trebuie ascultate la maxim.

Koyuki (light snow) is a project focused on minimalist aestethics in sound and image started by David Sani (shinkei) and Luigi Turra.  Koyuki interests are the perception of sound – the spaces between sound and silence – deep frequencies and inaudibility – the analysis of organic recordings – the relationship between digitalism and ancient traditional sounds – abstract digital processing of images.  these concepts are explored through compositions hopefully interesting for the mind and beautiful to eyes and ears.  koyuki suggests active participation from the listener/viewer, be it in the form of silent meditation or the attention needed to feel almost imperceptible frequencies and resonances.

Based on processed field recordings from some streets of Buenos Aires at late night and La Plata evenings, subway stations and electrical devices.

Similarities and interesting inversions… Nanonuns se adauga seriei, imaginea de mai sus fiind preluata / scanata dintr-o revista numita Anthropology Today [Vol. 19, No. 6 (Dec. 2003)].

Articolul lui Mikael Johansson nu exceleaza – asta nu inseamna ca nu este interesant – insa nota explicativa la campania publicitara a respectivei firme suedeze de imbracaminte cu destinatie speciala – pe care nu am reusit sa o identific, din pacate – mi se pare si mai interesanta. Relatia dintre principiile monastice si regulele de comportament din cadrul “camerelor albe”* este destul de evocativa. La fel si relatia dintre cele doua spatii: cel sacru / privat al claustrum**-ului si cel pur / privat al “camerei albe”.

* Este vorba, evident, de cleanroom.
