モントリオールの若き才能Antoine Berthiaumeが初来日で見せてくれた期待通りのハイレベルなパフォーマンスについて、しっかり記録を残しておきたい

7月26日、代官山クラシックスにて。つづきはまた。

つづき。

99年にカナダ・モントリオールに住んだとき、やっぱりライブハウスには行きまくった。東京では世界的にはほとんど無名だけど「世界レベル」にある、もしくはその素質を持った素晴らしい日本人ミュージシャン達が日夜ライブを繰り広げている。同じようにモントリオールでも、無名の優れたカナダ人ミュージシャンがライブをやっているに違いない。そしてせっかくモントリオールに住むのだから、モントリオールでしか聴けないそんなミュージシャンのライブをぜひ観たい。そう考えたのだ。

そうやって、目をつけたミュージシャンの一人こそ、今回初来日したAntoine Berthiaume。いつか国際的に活躍して、日本でもCDが買える日が来るに違いないと思っていたけれど、その日は意外と早くやってきた。1年前くらいだったかな。

お茶の水のディスクユニオンで見つけたこれです。なんとデレク・ベイリー、フレッド・フリスという即興演奏の大御所との共演盤。あれれ~モントリオールで聴いたときは、バリバリの「コンテンポラリー・ジャズギター」だったのに!「ジョンスコあたりが好きなんじゃない?」って彼に話しかけた記憶があるんだけど。
(まだづづく)

(続き)
いかん、トップページから消えてしまう・・・
この日、対バンしたギタリストの近藤秀秋さんが、御自身が主宰するレーベルBishop Recordsのサイトの日記に詳細な論評を書いておられますのでご一読を!

近藤さんはミュージシャンならではの鋭い視点で書いておられ、批判的な側面も含め概ね納得できる内容です。

ひとつ付け加えるとすれば、僕が感心したのは音色の美しさ。スプリングやスティックなどの道具を使って様々な音を出すのだけど、「フリージャズ」という言葉で一般に想起されうようなギャーっという暴力的な音は一切無し。すべての音が耳に心地よい。かといって生ぬるい、退屈なサウンドにはならない。「普通に」弾くときのタッチもすごく繊細でテクニックを感じさせるし。最後まで集中して聴くことができた。

一方で「もう少し危険な領域に・・・」という近藤さんの意見もよくわかる。上で「暴力的な音」という表現を使ったけど、別に否定的な意味ではない。月並みな結論だけど、要はバランスの問題なのだと思う。僕が大好きな内橋和久さんはその辺りのセンスが絶妙だし。この日は「声の音楽」がテーマだったから仕方ないのだけど、近藤さんとアントワンのデュオなんてのも聴いてみたかったなあ。

I tend not to leave a ton of responses, however I browsed a few comments on モントリオールの若き才能Antoine Berthiaumeが初来日で見せてくれた期待通りのハイレベルなパフォーマンスについて、しっかり記録を残しておきたい: 現代パフォーミングアーツ入門. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's okay. Is it simply me or do a few of these remarks come across like they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing at other online sites, I'd like to keep up with you. Could you list of the complete urls of your social community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?|

My programmer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am worried about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!|

Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem to be running off the screen in Internet explorer. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know. The layout look great though! Hope you get the problem solved soon. Kudos|

Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!|

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!|
