My interests in sounds are lately gone to next direction. I became less care about the expressivity of sounds but rather about semi-masochistic subsiding of sound, almost at the level of sonic humiliation. I am taking about the state of intentional self-humiliation were the core of musical intention is expressed by other means and the sonic presentation of musical idea is handled by a harmony between a thrifty sonic expressivity and the program’s load.
Too many sounds and too much embellishment of own musical geniuses just annoy me. Nowadays I have difficult time to hear Mahler, Stravinsky and Mozart – too expressive. I more into nowadays in B/W music – I found there more colors in there. Schubert, Bruckner some Bach – this time of direction…
I would like to get out my playback even a one single note but the right one - the note that actually has meaning more important than just a pitch produced by my hi-fi. How to get it? How to explain to those fucking capacitors, power cords and drivers that this specific legato in B5 should be without any demonstrable event and then tone should disrepair but also without the “event of disrepairing”?
It is my frustration with audio generally, with myself in particular or is it just my frustration with today’s electricity? I do not know.
