“Asymmetry or irregularity. The idea of controlling balance in a composition via irregularity and asymmetry is a central tenet of the Zen aesthetic.”
mAtter presents Fukinsei (不均斉), the fourth solo work of Luigi Turra over the last 11 years and is published two years after the sophisticated “Alea” (released by LINE). Fukinsei takes a more radical approach to the research of the perception of sound through silence and it does so through a modern electroacoustic implant which expresses a brilliant crossover between contemporary sound and ancient Japanese music tradition. Stylized Shakuhachi sounds interact with harsh textural noises, while bright sounds of diapasons and whispers of the human voice are broken by raw guitar notes to crush and sculpt with abrasiveness every aesthetic convention of symmetry and regularity.
A work by an Artist without compromises, tense and dynamic, that in its radical language supports the changes in the surrounding reality and becomes aware of the adaptation of the here and now.
Composed between January 2016 and March 2018
”完全にはない無限の可能性”である不均斉は、均等ではないその歪みや完全を超えた不完全な美を示す、日本の美しい文化を司る要素の一部であり、またその歴史的な表現に影響を受け、西洋の楽器や、ラップトップによってエディットされた音で、表現されています。ギターの響き、サインウェーブ、ヴォイス・サンプル、しかしそこに配置されているものは、グリッド状に配置される音ではなく、響きと” 間” に集中しています。
