The attitude during playing also affects the quolity of the sound

black-and-white-blur-classic-734918.jpg

When you play an instrument, one of the things you need to be especially careful about is attitude.

Because the performer’s body is also a part of the instrument to make it sound, the posture also has a great influence on the sound.

There is a traditionally correct attitude for playing the piano when playing the piano and for playing the violin when playing the violin. The attitude is not for the good looks and the ease of playing from the audience, but all for the better sounding.

If it compares, it is the same thing as the “type” of traditional Japanese performing arts such as Noh and Kabuki. All traditionally inherited types have meaning and are passed from parent to child, from child to grandchild. The basic theory to convey the mind to the audience for more advanced performance is inlaid. Even if you do something new that will open up the times, you need to learn the basic types first.

The attitude in classical music is also a type, and it is something that must be worn by the eyes of each instrument / song.

Technology is essential for playing an instrument. However, even if you improve only the technology, you will never be able to perform wonderfully to impress the audience.

What does playing a musical instrument mean playing music? Is it an act with a purpose?

I think that “exchange of life energy”.

When people who are physically and physically fulfilling and very energetic play the piano, those who are listening will also become well. That is because the performers’ mind is transmitted to the listener through music.

The music contains the composer’s energy. It is the mission of the performer to capture the energy of the composer and play the instrument to transfer the energy to the space and the audience.

When you touch true art, you can be struck by lightning and feel happy as if it were rising to the heavens through the works of art such as music and painting, by composers and painters It is because you receive energy. The bodies of composers and painters do not already exist in this world, but they can provide many people with their life energy. That is true art. That’s why art is great and wonderful.

So, when you play an instrument, you want to be aware of “your own mind” and how to convey the mind of the composer who made the music, not just looking at technology alone. Then, you will know how to play the music by yourself.

Why do people need music?

Because it is an approach to human’s fundamental desires and emotions, it does not work well just because the instrument is freaking good or musically superior.
For example, if you are the most popular artist, the person who won the classic contest is not that kind of thing. The same is true for songs, and it is not always good if they are good. However, some users are so impressed by their good playing and singing that they can not simply think.

On the other hand, some users say “I don’t know the song or something, but everyone is really cool”, so it seems to me that “After all, there is nothing to do with selling and the quality of the music.” But that’s not the case. Some of the coolness includes the goodness of the song. So, in this case, it seems to seek things other than music, and it is thought that the satisfaction of the mind is achieved by uniting with the music. If you really like cool people, you should be a model, but why are you going to a musician? It is thought that coolness is realized and satisfaction is achieved by the involvement of Otoya melody, rhythm, and various things.

So what kind of sound source, what kind of music, what kind of artist should it sing? It is the music business that thinks about that kind of moderation.

about

Yasuharu Nagura has performed a new live recording entitled 『bright & solemn』that is released June 1, 2019.

I know the importance of choices. I will make a lot of effort in exploring and creating options. As with the “options” in the financial world, long-lived options (=options) are more valuable. Similarr to financial options, the higher the uncertainty, the higher the value.

For generations who live a long life and face great uncertainity, having options can have immeasurable value. So, I delayed marriage, delayed making children, and delayed buying homes and cars. I postoponed the decison to narrow the choice.

“I chose music.”

The important thing in making sound source is track down.

 The process of producing music is basically the process of composition → arrangement → recording → track down. Once you have recorded the performance of each part on the MTR(An equipment called a multitrack recorder.), you have to work down the track. Ordinary, CD is 2 tracks of left and right stereo like cassette tape. For this reason, it is necessary to reduce the number of tracks and combine them into two tracks and dubbing to two-track media. This is called track down. You will not need a mixer for track down. There are various specialized books on how to track down, so let’s refer to them.

Copyright issues of works produced by AI

 The issue of the work produced by AI is the issue of copyrightThe copyright law defines a work as “creative expression of thought or emotion”. At the stage of 2017, the government’s Intellectual Property Strategy Headquarters concluded that “the work produced by AI will not be written.” However, I concluded that AI can not be a human creation. But we concluded that AI is not a human creation. However, AI is a human creation, and sometimes AI programs can be patented to produce art. I think that this problem will surface around 2020.

The mission of modern musicians is to pass on traditional music theory.

Japanese Apricots “Ume”

 Another important role for modern musicians such as professional musicians and conductors is to preserve the tradition of music theory and to convey it to future generations. It is not good enough to change the music theory established by the great geniuses of the past without permission, just because they are talented. The fact that traditional music theory is not properly inherited is a great loss for humanity.

 It would be easy to understand if you imagine the world of traditional performing arts in Japan such as Noh, Kyogen, and Kabuki. Modern Noh artists and Kabuki actors first learn about the “form” that has been passed down for generations. After mastering the form perfectly, you put your own interpretation and expression on the stage. The form that has been inherited is an acting theory that has been refined through the research and practice of the generations of actors, and each movement has a profound meaning. Without studying the type of tradition at all, it would be awkward to get me to do it myself, saying, “This is a new Kabuki that I think.” It is their main business to protect and communicate the type that has been passed down from the old days, and creating a selfish style is just “play”. People involved in traditional arts must inherit such traditional culture. It’s a museum-like job, but that’s the mission.

 Today’s musicians should play classical music that has made music theory exactly, in order to pass it on to future generations.
