Joshua Bonnetta // Innse Gall LP+BOOKLET

  • Availability:

カナダの音響作家Joshua Bonnettaが、2022年11月にフランスの実験レーベルShelter Pressからリリースしたレコードです。

ディープリスニング系フィールドレコーディング・コラージュ2曲を収録。

60ページのブックレットとErika Balsomによるエッセイ、ポストカード、映像作品「The Two Sights」の視聴コードが付属。以下、レーベルによる解説です。

ボネッタは、フィルム、写真、録音を使い、互いに密接に、生成的な対話を行います。写真は音の近さと緊急性を示し、音は動画の必要性を示し、フィルムは眼球を利用して音波の領域を前進させるのです。フィルム、レコード、写真など、彼の作品を構成する各要素は、自律的であると同時に、相互に関連しています。- アーティストとオブジェクトは主観的なレンズとして機能し、人間の経験の本質と、受け継がれた歴史、文化、場所、自己の接点における多様で潜在的な心理的現実を探究します。それは、場所や状況との出会いから生まれる反応的な実践であり、心を驚かせ、伝説や神話へと導くような混沌とした抽象的なものに秩序を与えようとするものです。

ボネッタの作品は、コンクレートやジョンケージが追求した「個人の趣味や記憶(心理)から自由な」実験音楽のような抽象的で「純粋な」音色の状態ではなく、サウンド・コラージュの副産物であるが、ルック・フェラーリの「逸話的音楽」という概念に深い共感を示し、素材や録音に含まれる社会性や自伝的文脈、その意味の次元を説明し保持することが可能です。アーティストに関する固定観念を強制するのではなく、リスナーは自分自身の物語を構築するよう促されます。これは、2017年から19年にかけてアウター・ヘブリディーズ諸島のバーラ、ベルネレイ、ノース・ユイスト、ハリス、ルイスで行われたフィールド・レコーディングからボネッタが構成した2つのオーディオ作品、インス・ガル「The Islands of the Strangers」についても同様です。

ボネッタの、場所と人々を調査する主要な手段としての音の魅力を引き出し、Innse Gall 'The Islands of the Strangers' は、ロブスターの巻き網で長時間かけて録音したハイドロフォンや泥炭地から漏れ出すガスの録音、インタビューの断片、海運業の音、歌、アザラシ、ウズラ、シギ、その他自然界の要素をとらえた野外録音など、幅広い音の素材に注目しています。このアルバムの2つの作品、Innse Gall IとInnse Gall IIは、島を構成するこれらの多様な要素が相互に関連する音響生態系を探求する中で、丹念にコラージュ(再構築)され、これらの古今の風景に埋め込まれた皮肉な物語が、その記憶を保持する消えゆくゲールの口頭伝承と照らし合わせられ、物語、環境、それらが互いに及ぼす影響の関係について深く聴覚的に考察する結果となりました。

Innse Gall「The Islands of the Strangers」は、日常から深い詩、美、意味を引き出し、フィールドレコーディングとサウンドコラージュの条件を一歩一歩見直しています。

" Joshua Bonnetta - Innse Gall ‘The Islands of the Strangers’
Bridging acoustic ecology and interdisciplinary creative practice, Joshua Bonnetta returns to Shelter Press with Innse Gall ‘The Islands of the Strangers’, his second LP for the label. Recorded and assembled between 2017 and 2020 and acting as a companion piece to Bonnetta’s film, An Dà Shealladh ‘The Two Sights’, these two interrelated side-long works - Innse Gall I and Innse Gall II - respectively deploy a rigorous approach to field recording and auditory phenomena, pursuing the complex relationship between landscape, place, language, and culture in the Outer Hebrides, where both the film and album’s source material was gathered. Representing a radical rethinking of the potential of sound collage, Innse Gall ‘The Islands of the Strangers’, is issued by Shelter Press as a limited edition, deluxe vinyl LP, housed in a 7mm reverse-board outer sleeve and a heavyweight reverse-board inner sleeve, accompanied by a sixty page booklet containing extensive photographic studies made for ‘The Two Sights’ by the artist and an essay by Erika Balsom, as well as a postcard to download the film An Dà Shealladh ‘The Two Sights’, generously provided by Cinema Guild, and Arsenal - Institut für Film und Videokunst.
Since the late 2000s Canadian artist Joshua Bonnetta has cultivated a highly singular interdisciplinary creative practice that spans film, video, sound, performance, and installation. In addition to his previous LP on Shelter Press, Lago, he has released albums on Senufo Editions, Experimedia, and Canti Magnetici, and exhibited at The Berlin Film Festival, BFI London Film Festival, ICA London, MOMA, The New York Film Festival, Rotterdam Film Festival, Toronto International Film Festival, amongst others.

Bonnetta’s use of film, photography, and sound recording operate in close, generative dialog with each other; a photograph indicating the proximity and urgency of sound, a sound indicating the necessity for moving image, and a film utilising the ocular to forward a realm of sonority. Each discreet element of his output - a film, record, photograph, etc. - is regarded as autonomous while interconnected with, and dependent on, other realms of perception and experience; the artist and object acting as a subjective lens, inquiring after the nature of human experience and the diverse, latent psychological realities at juncture of inherited history, culture, place, and self. It is a responsive practice, emerging out of an encounter with place and circumstance, that attempts to give order to the chaos and abstractions that cause the mind wonder, and give way to legend and myth.

While very much the byproduct of sound collage, rather than the states of abstraction and ‘pure’ sonority most often pursued by musique concrète, or an experimental music “free of individual taste and memory (psychology)”, as pursued by John Cage, Bonnetta’s work displays a deeper sympathy with Luc Ferrari’s notion of ‘anecdotal music’, in which the social and autobiographical contexts of the source material / recordings - with their embedded dimensions of meaning - is accounted for and retained. Rather than enforcing a fixed vision of the artist, the listener in encouraged construct a narrative of their own. This is no less the case for Innse Gall ‘The Islands of the Strangers’, comprising two audio works constructed by Bonnetta from field recordings made on the Outer Hebrides islands of Barra, Berneray, North Uist, Harris, & Lewis between 2017-19.

Drawing upon Bonnetta’s fascination with sound as a primary means to survey place and people, Innse Gall ‘The Islands of the Strangers’ draws upon a vast range of sonorous material: hydrophone recordings made over extended periods in lobster creels and of gases escaping a peat bog, interview fragments, and field recordings feature capturing the sounds of maritime industry, song, seals, corncrake, snipe, and other elements of the natural world. Meticulously collaged and reworked within an exploration of the interrelated acoustic ecology of these diverse elements of the islands’ make-up, the album’s two works - Innse Gall I and Innse Gall II - bristle with the subcutaneous narratives embedded within these ancient and modern landscapes, played against the disappearing Gaelic oral traditions which hold their memories, resulting in a deep, auditory reflection on the relationship between narrative, environment, and the reciprocal influences they exact upon one another.

Challenging the perceived boundaries and interconnectedness of place and occupation - to what extent the perception of an environment is modelled by language, culture, and myth, or that the environment underscores the very becoming of those things - Bonnetta’s Innse Gall ‘The Islands of the Strangers’, draws profound poetry, beauty, and meaning from the everyday, rethinking the terms of field recording and sound collage every step of the way.
