About

Yasuharu Nagura has performed a new live recording entitled 『The Recovery of Soul Life』that is released May 6, 2018. He performed “the recovery of soul life” on analog moduler synthesizer. He made full use of visual art and completed the long-term project in 2019. It took two years.

Statement

The concept of album is to restore the life of the soul. It is not special. It is to restore the feeling of joy and sadness in daily life, such as village festivals and dedication to deceased people. It is to recognize that the street trees flying at equal intervals are olive trees growing gently.

People do not know what they want. Everyone is moving around because they do not like where they are. Everyone is asleep or yawing on a running train. Children only know what they are looking for and they are lucky. People are not sure what they are seeking because they are corrupted by the culture of ready-made goods and the culture of standarized goods. People can be truly satisified by showing their creative abilities. “Emergence!”

Statement

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. Similar 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.”

Daily Discovery – Yasuharu Nagura – bright & solemn

The following passage is a quotation from Bored in Pittsburgh.

Today’s find, “bright & solemn,” (Hideout Records) is a newly released single from Japanese experimental musician Yasuharu Nagura. The process that Nagura used to create this snippet is called live coding; I don’t pretend to fully understand the practice, but it’s essentially the act of manipulating computer code in real time to create music on the fly. It’s like playing an instrument, using keystrokes to control specific words and phrases (which then influence sonic output) as opposed to using your fingers to create/select notes or chords. It’s slightly more elaborate than playing live analogue music, but the spirit of spontaneous creation is the same. The track itself is a nice little collection of bubbling synths and fragments of what sound like trombone, interacting with each other over a straightforward drum beat. I find the concept of live coding to be fascinating, and hope to learn more about it in the future.
