Quotes

Forschungsschwerpunkt der großartigen SprachTonKünstlerin AGF ist das Verhältnis von Sprache und (elektronischer) Musik, die Reibungen von Text und Klang, die Wechselwirkungen zwischen Sound und Gedicht. In ihren "poetry series", deren dritte Folge diese in Zusammenarbeit mit Tujiko Norika, Kyoka, Ryoko Akama, Yu Kawabate und Misumi Mizumi (jede dieser Japanerinnen war mir bis dato unbekannt) entstandene CD verkörpert, erkundet AGF "the history of poetry in one particular language from a female perspective." Auf deutsche und finnische folgt nun, eingehüllt in mit bewundernswerter Liebe zum Detail ziselierte AGF-trademark-Klangfraktale, japanische Lyrik unterschiedlichster Epochen (z.T. in englischer Übersetzung). Und einmal mehr mutet das Resultat wie die PopMusik einer Kardaschew-Typ-III-Zivilisation an - unserer Zeit weit voraus!

AGF Producktion - AGF PRO 020

A Deep Mysterious Tone

...is the third edition in AGF’s poetry series, following Gedichterbe [German/2010] and Kuuntele [Finnish/2013]. The series investigates the history of poetry in one particular language from a female perspective. Via current music and sound art practices the poems are reimagined in a 21st century context.Twelve Japanese poets were selected for this issue. Three poets date from the Heian period (794– 1185/1192) and the rest are from the Meiji Restoration (when closed Japan finally opened up to the world, starting in 1868) and after. In addition to the Japanese language poets, one piece features the sound of the Ainu, the indigenous people of northern Japan. These primarily female stories were interpreted by AGF and her contemporaries Kyoka, Tujiko Noriko, Yu Kawabata and Ryoko Akama, fellow artists and producers she got to know at various music festivals in Europe. The only living poet here is Misumi Mizuki, who reads her work herself.
