about

ニュージーランドの伝説的な演奏集団フロム・スクラッチの代表作であり難曲『ガン・ホー1,2,3D』に現行3アーティストが挑む。パーカッションを共通分母に各人が奏法を探求したカヴァー演奏集(※リミックス集ではありません)。

フロム・スクラッチは、極左音楽家コーネリアス・カーデューに学んだフィル・ダドソンが、スクラッチ・オーケストラのニュージーランド支部として70年代に組織した演奏集団が発展したものだ。彼らは戦闘的な風貌のカスタム楽器で世界的に知られ、坂本龍一も一目おいた打楽器ユニットとなり、2度の来日も果たした。

彼らの真骨頂といえる作品がこの難曲『ガン・ホー1,2,3D』で、演奏者が個別に異なる拍子を叩くホケティングを特徴とし、正確な反復リズムでの究極のポリリズムは圧巻。文字面では機械的で無機質な響きだが、塩化ビニル製チューブから発生する倍音まみれの俗物的な音と人力演奏による僅かな誤差が有機成分となって不思議な恍惚感を生む。

今作では『ガン・ホー1,2,3D』で最も複雑な8,9,10拍子と9,10,11拍子で演奏された1981年のオリジナル録音を筆頭に、国内外の現行3アーティスト:YPY 日野浩志郎率いるゴート, 独のDon't DJ、パーカッショニストの小林うてなが解釈に挑んだカヴァーの計4作品を収録。全て楽譜を元に演奏しているが4者の解釈はまるで異なる。

From Scratch was an innovative and highly influential New Zealand-based sound-performance group, making extensive use of found and repurposed objects as well as custom-made instruments in their intricately interlocking percussion music. One of their signature instruments consisted of carefully tuned PVC pipes, played with foam rubber mallets; arrays of these feature prominently, along with drums and tuned percussion, in Gung Ho 1,2,3D, an extended composition which sumptuously investigates polyrhythmic relationships indicated by the number sequences which title each section of the piece. Featured here is the original 1982 recording of the "8, 9, 10" and "9, 10, 11" sections of the piece, previously issued in 1988 by Flying Nun.

Rounding out this release are three 2016 translations of the piece, based on the original score. Japanese group goat provides a driving rhythmic and mathematical analogue, which From Scratch's Phil Dadson, who provides liner notes, describes as "a fast moving shadow, familiar in outline but from another world". German producer Don't DJ imbibes the tribal spirit of Gung Ho and its sense of ritual to deliver a hypnotic immersion, and Utena Kobayashi Group adds wordless voice-worlds and distorted blasts to the ever-onward mix, before a final tropical down-shift.
