Hoy tenía intención de repasar con LaLiBéluLa de Radio3 una novedad discográfica que me ha dejado patidifuso... una producción de lujo, músicos excepcionales, unas canciones pegadizas y con mensaje, un sonido excepcional de una banda cuyo nombre no he conseguido retener, y no porque fuese extranjero, que yo juraría que no, sencillamente es que no se me ha quedado... además se me ha olvidado traer el disco, o sea que... bueno, pues escucharemos otras tonadas de... de otros artistas, leeremos algunos fragmentos seleccionados...y no sé si me dejo algo en el tintero...LaLiBéLuLa de Radio3 contará con las Memorias de un amnésico ( Memoirs of an amnesiac), una obra de arte sonoro que firma Mathew Verdon y que nos presentará desde Madrid Abierto Jorge Díez...

2009-2010. Matthew Verdon. MEMOIRS OF AN AMNESIAC

Memoirs of an amnesiac
Matthew Verdon

10.1 MB 8:52 min

 The recording is based on a quote written by avant-garde composer Erik Satie, taken from his collection of writings titled Memoirs of an Amnesiac. The full quote describes a typical day in his somewhat eccentric lifestyle. The text, spoken by the artist, is repeated eight times with every second word removed from each reading. This applies a reductive strategy to the text, where it gets progressively shortened until eventually only the first sentence remains. A feeling of dissonance is created, where the logical expression of language is disrupted, resulting in a mixture of sense and nonsense, seriousness and humour. The seemingly disconnected words are read at a steady pace in a monotone voice, where they function like the beat of a metronome, a device used to regulate the pace of music.
