第五トラディショナルno.19 We Love “NOIZE”

 

CDやデータでの音質が当たり前となっている現代において、

録音にのった”ノイズ(ホワイトノイズ)”というものは

かなり異質なものであります。

 

そしてそれは、あたかも現代とその当時とに大きく横たわる山河のように、

わたしたちと当時の時空とを隔てています。

 

しかし今回はそこにロマンティシズムを感じてしまった、

どうしようもない回。

George W. Johnson

George Washington Johnson

(c. October 1846 – January 23, 1914) was a singer and pioneer sound recording artist, the first African American recording star of the phonograph

(wikipedia)

同じくウィキの記載より、当時の録音技術が窺い知れるエピソードが。

In the earliest days of the recording industry, every record was a "master".

A singer with a strong voice could make 3 or 4 usable recordings at once, with as many machines running simultaneously with their recording horns pointed towards the singer’s mouth.

Johnson would sometimes sing the same song over and over again in the recording studio fifty or more times a day.

「最初期のレコード産業では、一枚一枚が”マスター”だった。

大声量の歌手が、かれらの口に向けられ同期された録音機にむかって、一度に3,4枚のレコードを吹き込めた。

ジョンソンは屡々同じ曲を一日に50回かそれ以上、何度も何度も吹き込んだのであろう。」

Édouard-Léon Scott de Martinville

(25 April 1817 – 26 April 1879) was a French printer and bookseller who lived in Paris.

He invented the earliest known sound recording device, the phonautograph, which was patented in France on 25 March 1857.

”Au Clair de la Lune”

April 9, 1860

daughter of the inventor?

 

ちなみにこの録音が再発見されたのは2008年になってからのことだそうです。

In 2008, the New York Times reported the discovery of a phonautogram from 9 April 1860.

The announcement of the discovery was accompanied by an announcement that the visual recording was made playable — "converted from squiggles on paper to sound — by scientists at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California."

The phonautogram was one of Leon Scott’s forgotten images in Paris; they were scanned then processed by a sophisticated computer program developed a few years earlier by the Library of Congress.

そして、Tchaikovskyを弾く超名人Pavst

Christian George Paul Pabst was a German/Russian pianist, composer and teacher born on 15th May 1854 in Köenigsberg (now Kalinigrad the enclave of Russia surrounded by the E.C.).

He died suddenly on 16th May 1897 in Moscow and was buried in the German Cemetery in Moscow.

Paul studied piano with his father, violinist, pianist and conductor August Pabst later in Dresden and with Anton Door in the Academy of Music and Lyric Arts in Vienna and spent some time with Franz Lizst in Weimar.
