  • Availability:

アイルランド・コークの実験音楽家/エコロジストMichael Allen Z Primeが、2023年6月にイギリスの実験レーベルParadigm Discから100部限定でリリースした3枚組CD+ブルーレイです。

バイオエレクトリカル音楽(植物や菌類から発生する生体電位を利用した音楽)による物音コラージュ〜ミニマル・ノイズ27曲を収録。

植物神経生物学の歴史と発展について彼自身が解説した44ページのブックレットが付属。


本作には収録されていませんが、BBCによるMichael Allen Z Primeの特集をご紹介します。

" あなたが耳にする音は、菌によって生成された活動電位を音で直接トレースしたものです。 活動電位とは、電気活動の短いバーストです。長い音の連続のようには聞こえないし、キノコや摘み取られた葉が作り出すものでもありません。"

------------------------------------------

3xCD includes 1xBlu-ray of 'Bioelectrical Films' and 44 page booklet.
Edition of 100 copies with bonus Blu-ray (standard edition of 400).

Paradigm Discs:

"We have not had a physical release by composer and ecologist Michael Prime since the release of Borneo in 2007. This new 3CD set brings us up to date with a series of recordings from across the years. It also sees a new refinement in his working practice as well as a new extension to his original name. Bioelectrical Music by Michael Allen Z Prime consists of recordings that fall into 3 defined categories - Bioelectrical Compositions, Bioelectrical Field Recordings and Bioelectrical Installations. All three use the bioelectrical potentials generated by plants and fungi, although these sound sources are now no longer purely seen as raw material available for multi-tracking or further electronic processing of the signal path. Now, the bioactivity signals themselves form the basis of the music. Following a framework of self imposed rules that restrict the extent that the source sounds can be altered, such that the essential voice of the living sound sources remain identifiable. The development of this framework is a direction that Prime’s music has been moving towards for some years now, and this box set collects various recordings made between 1990 and 2019 that fall into the remit of this new development. The pieces included here range from short sound studies to lengthy compositions and installation recordings made at a wide variety of locations. The 3CDs are accompanied by a 44 page booklet with an essay by Prime outlining the history and development of our understanding of plant neurophysiology. There is also a short piece written by author and fungal enthusiast Merlin Sheldrake."
