EVOL - Magia Potagia

  • クリックで画像を表示

Roc Jiménez de Cisneros と Anna Ramosを中心に共同研究者たちが独自の哲学で「フーリガンのためのコンピューターミュージック」を構成する集団EVOLの2005年作。
1曲目は2002年に始まった複雑に周波数を変調させ物理的にカオスを構築する?というかなり難しいコンセプトのシリーズからの楽曲。28:44秒です。
2、3曲目はアンチクライマックス法を用いたシリーズから。それぞれ約16分と20分。
音だけでもかなり面白いのですが、深いコンセプトまで読み解けばさらに面白いのかもしれません。英語ですが下記に詳細記載しますね。

"Punani Potagia" (2003-2004) is the third track in a
series of pieces that started in early 2002, involving a combination of
complex Frequency Modulation techniques and the use of strange
attractors to modulate the synthesis engine.

"Pus Pus Pus" and "Walpurgis" (2001-2002) [*] are part
of a series of generative tracks started in 2001 based around the idea
of anti-climax, where despite constant nano-changes in pitch and
amplitude, there's no relevant variation from beginning to end.




(*) Walpurgis Night - Valborgsmässoafton

When it was about time for spring to arrive the Vikings had a
celebration in its honour, they lit bonfires so to hurry along the
coming of spring and to scare off evil spirits.

In the year 710 a woman named
Valborg/Walpurgis/Wealdburg/Valderburger was born somewhere in northern
Europe. According to legend she is supposed to be the daughter of the
great king Richard. Her name though would rather suggest a Celtic,
German or even a Scandinavian background. The most popular belief is
however that she was born somewhere in today's Britain.

During her life she travelled to Germany with her brothers and she
founded the Catholic convent Heidenheim in Wurtemburg1, Germany. She
later became a nun there. She died the 25th of February 779. That day
still carries her name, Valborg, in the Catholic calendar. She was not
made a saint until the 1st of May 779.

Now because of the date of her being declared a saint her name
became associated with the Viking spring and fertility celebrations
which took place at approximately the same time of the year, around the
30th of April. She was worshipped in the same way as the Vikings had
worshipped spring. So as the Vikings spread across Europe the two dates
became mixed together and produced the Valborg celebration. Valborg was
usually symbolised by three oat ears and a small bottle of oil. This was
supposed to indicate fertility.

So how big was the religious impact of the Valborgsmäss? This
solemnity was most probably just a big excuse to socialise with your
friends and neighbours and having a good time. Considering the fact that
it took two elements that had really no connection what so ever and
made it into a holiday. First we have Valborg, a catholic nun, and then
we already have a small spring festivity celebrated by the Vikings. The
most probable reason for why the spreading of Valborg is that the rest
of Europe wanted yet another fun day. In return for this the celebration
received a name, the name of a saint, so that the celebration would be
more accepted by the Catholic Church. There probably was no religious
impact what so ever, except maybe a small nudge when Scandinavia was
supposed to be christened. Valborg is today celebrated without parallels
to Christian church or religion.



1. Notice the connection Valborg - Wurtemburg (Wurtemmberg). We
cannot know if the saint took her name from the area or if the area was
named after her.
