Geister | The Sweetest Noise

April 9, 2011

Die vergangenen Tage hab ich darüber nachgedacht, was uns der relativ neu erfundene Genrebegriff Ghost Drone eigentlich sagen will. Drone Music, schon klar, aber wie steht es mit den Geistern?

Tonbandstimmenforscher Raymond Cass

So richtige Geistermusik kenne ich ja zur Genüge; wenn man sich mit dem bizarren und gleichzeitig ungemein spannenden Phänomen der Tonbandstimmen beschäftigt, stösst man immer wieder auf Musik aus dem Jenseits – die müssen dort halt auch irgendwie ihre Zeit rumbringen.

Girl’s Voice – Singing, aufgenommen von Raymond Cass, Datum unbekannt.*

Manchmal wird auch so richtige Synthesizer(?)-Musik aus dem Jenseits herübergebeamt. Dieser Auschnitt stammt aus einer Aufnahme von Paul Affolter, Schweiz, 1967/68.*

Oder Ghost Drone bezeichnet einfach das Geisterhafte an einer bestimmten Art von Musik. Cosmotropia de Xam hat in einem Debug-Interview vor einiger Zeit die Musik seines Projektes Mater Suspiria Vision als Ghost Drone bezeichnet; obwohl Mater meiner Meinung nach auch richtig tolle Witch House-Tracks machen, würde ich den wahren Kern der Band ebenfalls so benennen (darüber habe ich hier schon mal philosophiert).

Ein anderer Künstler, der seine Musik Ghost Drone nennt, ist der in Berlin lebende Amerikaner Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt. Auf den bin ich zum ersten Mal auf der grandiosen Bleak-Labelcompilation Why be Blake when you can be Bleak? (über die auf TSN unbedingt (!) noch ausführlicher berichtet werden muss) aufmerksam geworden; der Gitarrist, Komponist und Veranstalter hat eine eigene Spieltechnik erfunden, die sich „accidental guitar method“ nennt, weiter Infos dazu gibt es hier.

Live im King Kong Club, Berlin, 2009

Für mich klingt Marquardt wie eine Mischung aus Tim Hecker und Sunn O))), beides mag ich ja bekanntlich sehr gerne. Vor kurzem hat er eine neue CD auf Avachorda namens Gesang der Geister herausgebracht.

Live am Friends Of Sagittarius Festival, Berlin, 2010

Wer sich für das weitere Werk des Künstlers interessiert (und da gibt es viel zu entdecken), hier ein paar Links:

Bohm & Cooper Marquardt Duo in Wire Magazine, issue April 2011
DateFriday, February 4, 2011 at 5:21PM

The Bohm & Cooper Marquardt Duo contribute the track Ruf der Apostel/Apostles Calling for the WIRE magazine CD, issue April 2011.

Release date for the Bohm & Cooper Marquardt duo album Venus von Berlin is also April this year.

Sean In His Own Words:

”I have lived in europe for a few years now, if there is a cultural mix in my composing then it is a mix that i am totally unaware of.”

”I am a complet autodidact, that has eschewed academic and systematic study in order to acheive an idiosyncratic and syncretic personal cosmology, and though this process placing myself in the sunburnt soundscapes of the world that surrounds us. ”

”I have not spent any time trying to maintain a presence, my energies were spent creating the compositions, and then making sure that they were received by the labels, because i always send my tracks by post.
i like the ideal of the label receiving something physical and not just a link.”

”Normally takes me one to two months to produce a composition, and I always record the compositions in a live setting, after the tracks are recorded and released, I never go back to them.”

”My performance is not a show or some other form of entertainment.
I see it as a sort of research of what is possible, and what was deemed to be impossible in the realm of soundscapes, this is a journey to known and unknown destinations.”

”I wanted to go to ground zero with making compositions,which means that i wanted to as much as possibleto break away from all influences, and be as honest as i can in trying to be a individual and original composer”

For our German readers/listeners here is a descriptive text by Birgit Anna Schumacher, Autorin und Kuratorin (basierend auf einem Gespräch mit Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt im Februar 2011)

Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardts
„Accidental Guitar“

Experiment und Konzept schließen sich nicht gegenseitig aus. Bei Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt wird das bei seiner Idee der „Accidental Guitar“ deutlich: Das scheinbar Emotional-Spontane, das Intuitive, mitunter Wilde und Ungestüme – Charakteristika, die die Life-Performances des Berliner Musikers und Komponisten genauso prägen wie seine Aufnahmen – entstehen mitnichten „by accident“: also weder rein zufällig noch aus einer spontanen Laune heraus. „Accidental Guitar“ ist ein ganzheitliches und fundiertes Konzept, das drei wesentliche Dimensionen umfasst: Das Kreieren von Klängen und Klangwelten mithilfe der Verknüpfung von Gitarre und Verfremdungseffekten, eine Art „Routing-“ oder „Mapping“-Technik, in die sich der Musiker jedoch keineswegs verliert, sondern bewusst mit den Möglichkeiten, die ihm zur Verfügung stehen, umzugehen weiß. Eine weitere Dimension der „Accidental Guitar“ ist die Improvisation, für die sich Cooper Marquardt entschieden hat – konsequent lehnt er deshalb jegliche Form des Einstudierens und Planens oder festgelegte Choreografien ab, und dies nicht nur bei Life-Auftritten, sondern auch, wenn Aufnahmen in seinem Studio entstehen. Die dritte Dimension schließlich, die das Konzept formiert, ist die jeweilige Situation, in der er sich beim Spielen befindet: Atmosphäre und Setting, Personen, Bedingungen und Stimmungen im Raum führen zur Kontextualisierung seiner Musik.

Das wohl durchdachte und gleichsam situative Konzept der „Accidental Guitar“ ermöglicht es Cooper Marquardt, im Experimentellen Bewusstheit über sein Tun zu bewahren. Diese Bewusstheit wird zum konstituierenden Element seiner Musik, sie erwächst aus „Accidents“, auf die der Musiker reagiert. Die Kette dieser Reaktionen schließlich formiert eine gewisse Logik – ohne dass diese den spontanen und freien Impetus seines Schaffens in Frage stellen würde.
