如何将金属踢入超速档

andres_segovia切碎

在一个更加晴朗的世界中,所有接近购买自己音乐年龄的孩子都将获得两碟安德烈斯·塞戈维亚的专辑,题为 塞哥维亚的艺术 and made to listen and understand it before moving on. This collection of songs reveals not just how good music can be, but how to think 关于 music both as technical musicianship and as 艺术.

此集由Andres Segovia安排和表演的歌曲集,在似乎更受控制的最佳状态下,展现了乐器的威力。这些乐曲大部分来自作曲家,他们最初是为吉他或小型合奏创作的,塞戈维亚对其进行了布局,以便他可以在每首歌曲的长度上用吉他演奏多首旋律。结果,这些歌曲是密集的,而大多数流行音乐都不是,因为每个部分都与乐曲中的先前材料有关,而是试图不仅补充而且扩展存在的内容。旋律从几张音符发展成完整的表情,然后通过每首歌中对比声音的内容对自己进行修改,从而产生一种效果,就像读一本好书一样,其中每个角色在冒险历程中都会发生变化,同时又会影响整个过程旅程。起初听起来像是填充和转弯的声音不是虚假的材料,而是歌曲的延续,演奏的每个音符都具有一定的目的,没有多余的或为了炫耀的目的。仅此一项就欺骗了当前的技术音乐,在这种音乐中,如果将简单的歌曲打扮成公认的“hard” techniques becomes “technical,”即使这些装饰对歌曲本身没有任何贡献。除了表演外,这里的技术还包括音乐的创作和编排。

此外, 塞哥维亚的艺术 迫使我们去看什么使一首歌—我们称其为心理过程的一种媒介“art” — strike us as great instead of simply adequate plus novel. Each of these songs evokes a feeling that is both unique to the song and can be found in life itself, not a subjective sense but more a subjective perception of the objective translated into a form that any logical mind can process. This transcends the limitations of not only the medium but the human mind itself, creating a commonality based on an accurate view of reality that is nonetheless interpretive, instead of pandering to the lowest common denominator that a crowd would find pleasing. All of the tools of 艺术 —节奏,旋律,和声和短语—致力于揭示复杂体验的内在本质,而不是将其提炼成简单的陈述,而是引导我们逐步经历它的演变并达到清晰的时刻,然后在我们吸收我们所感知的东西时逐渐消失。

很少有人听摇滚,金属,爵士或蓝调音乐,他们坐下来聆听,欣赏并欣赏其杰出作品,并从其媒介之外了解其杰出之处。就像一本好书一样,一首伟大的音乐可以揭示生活中我们没有发现或否认的某些东西。它向我们展示了真相 , not creating another surface category, and in doing so makes us consider how this experience is universal to those who invest the time in understanding it. Truth meets us halfway between our perspective and the world. Great 艺术 lifts us out of the subjective, transforms the objective through not just the power of personality but the insight of talent, and delivers it to us in a form that re-discovers life with freshness through a vividly accurate portrayal that shows the hidden possibility lurking even 内 the mundane. When we have that level of expectation for 艺术, the trivial novelty and diehard pandering to comfortingly familiar sounds fades away and instead we seek something of greater clarity, power and ultimately 含义。自然地,这在唱片公司中并不受欢迎,因为唱片公司每个月都不可能发现塞哥维亚,但对于那些珍惜时间并想听取人类最大能力的音乐的人来说, 塞哥维亚的艺术 为我们提供了一个标准,所有出色专辑都必须与之进行比较。

并非所有这些技术都像塞哥维亚那样技术’s playing or the writing of the composers he arranges. They do not need to be. If they uphold the same spirit of discovery and revelation that makes this 艺术 so profound, they can do so with fewer musical techniques. But if they do not live up to that understanding of what 艺术 and 通过 extension music can be, they sound hollow in comparison to Segovia and stand no chance of comparison. The best of metal lives up to this standard and it refuses to be controlled 通过 those who wish to dumb it down so they can sell more of it or use it to push a message. As we go into a new year, and the second half of a dubious decade, demanding metal that live up to this standard ensures that we will have less to listen to, but enjoy it more.
