Arve Henriksen

Din nou recenzii?! Urasc recenziile, asa ca am sa fiu scurt: Arve este ca o tigara. Nu sunt fumator, dar stiu eu ca asa este. Bun. De ce ca o tigara, si nu ca un tort, spre exemplu? Pentru ca tigara, o tigara supercalitativa, evident, o fumezi. Tragi, scoti fum. In cazul lui Arve avem de’a face cu o tigara din care tragi, tragi, si nu mai vrei sa scoti nimic inapoi. Nici macar fum. Ceea ce e destul de straniu, ca si comparatie. Arve e trompetist.

P.S. Daca vreti sa aveti parte de o experienta foarte interesanta, porniti cele piese in acelasi timp.

ECMania: Jarrett & Bach

[ECM New Series 1513/14]

Ascultand interpretarea oferita de Jarrett la suitele franceze a lui Bach mi-am adus instant aminte de un album exceptional, unu’ care se va afla etern in panoplia discografica a Lanternativei. Este vorba, evident, de Gorgoroth’s Destroyer (or About How to Philosophize with the Hammer) [1998]. Pentru exemplificare, vezi coperta mai sus. Bun.

Jarrett a esuat in a filosofa pe muzica lui Bach. A avut tot ce trebuie. Minus ciocanul.

P.S. Mi-ar place enorm sa aud o interpretare Gorgoroth la Bach.

ECMania: The Dowland Project

Ascultand discurile publicate de proiectul Dowland, which is

an attempt to re-discover the essence of renaissance song from the point of view of a modern performer

mi-am adus aminte de ce scria Herder cu ceva milenii in urma intr-una din carticelele sale numita, in orig., Fragmente über die neuere deutsche Literatur:

Oh accursed word “classical”! It has transformed Cicero for us into a classical school rhetorician, Virgil and Homer into classical poets, Caesar into a pedagogue, Livy into a phrasemonger. It has divided expression from thought, and thought from the event that has generated it…this word has become a wall between us and all true education which would have seen the ancients as living exemplars…this word has buried many a genius beneath a heap of words…crushed him under a millstone of a dead language…When a German poet is described as a second Horace…as a new Lucretius, a historian as a second Livy, that is nothing to be proud of; but it would be a great, rare, enviable glory for us if one could say about such writers: “this is how Horace, Cicero, Lucretius, Livy, would have written if they were writing about this topic, at this particular stage of culture, at this particular time, with this particular purpose, for this particular people, with its particular outlook and its own language”.

Firminus Caron – Kyrie Jesus:

Albumul poate fi DL de aici: Part. I & Part. II.

Maki Asakawa

Asakawa-diva preferata a marelui  Shuji Terayama (daca nu ati vazut inca Emperor Tomato Ketchup grabiti-va sa o faceti), regele neincoronat al underground-ului japonez.

Muzica sa are nevoie de accesorii: cafea de sa stea lingurita dreapta in ceasca, noapte tarzie, neoane palpaitoare, romanele lui William Gibson & Bruce Sterling pe canapea, iar pe ecranul calculatorului / televizorului vreun film de Shinya Tsukamoto.
