about

人間は思うより早く忘れる。いつも前を向いて、走っているので、忘れる。忘れたいのかもしれない。その為、時間の流れ方が蜃気楼のように不明になる。しかし、詳しく見ると時間の印が見つかる。

都会で人間の活動、建築、都市計画、未来の希望、すべては歴史を流れて、環境が今の時代の為に変化する。だが、その流れで、なにが消えるのか?文化の記録、本、映画、音楽のレコード、こういうものは前の時代の記憶を保つが、大事なコンテキストがない。この音楽はなんでこのように作られたのか、このミュージシャンは何を伝えたかったのか、こういう質問に答えるのは難しい。

しかし、詳しく見ると時間の印が見つかる。都会の中に神秘な所はある。そこでは時間の流れは昔からずっと止まっている。この特別な所で後ろに向いて、昔の時代を一見できる。そして、蜃気楼が消えて、その一瞬に時間の一糸が見えるかもしれない。そして、やっとその大事なコンテキストがわかるようになるかもしれない。

現在、梅レコードは、日本、東京の Yuto Ohashi のアルバム "Weltkarte - 子午線と空のあわいで" をリリースする。

~

Humans forget sooner than we think. Always facing forward, we run ahead and therefore we forget. Perhaps we want to forget. For this reason, the flow of time, as though in a mirage, becomes obscured. However, if one looks closely, the marks of time can still be found.

In the city, human activities, construction, urban planning, hope for the future, all wash away history and change the environment for the sake of the current era. But what is lost in this flux? Cultural records, books, film, music, these items preserve a record of the past, but the essential context is gone. Why was this music made this way? What did this musician want to express? It is difficult to answer such questions.

However, if one looks closely, the marks of time can still be found. In the city there are mysterious places. In these places the flow of time has been stopped since long ago. In these places, one can turn backwards and get a glimpse of an earlier era. Then the mirage disappears and perhaps for an instant one can see the thread of time. And perhaps finally one can come to understand that essential context.
