▼WV039: 盛潔 gogoj a.k.a Sheng Jie - 卵生 Oviparity
A co-release with Maybe Noise Records
maybenoise.bandcamp.com

Bows immerse into noise and drone.
The very first electric cello album on WV Sorcerer Productions' catalog.

“在苯教的理論中,光陰是不存在的,但空間在世界的形成過程中至關重要,他的化身是南喀東丹覺松傑,是無形鈍態的。”

“In Bon religious thought, time does not exist, but space is essential in the manifestation of the world, his incarnation is the Namkha King, formless and passive.”

盛潔,生於北京,2000-2005遊學於法國和蘇格蘭,21世紀初至今於中國和世界各大洲演出、駐地並舉辦各類展覽,創作涉及實驗音樂、錄像、繪畫、電影、裝置等眾多領域。從事音樂創作及演奏20余年,她的首張正式實體音樂出品《卵生》,現由Maybe Noise與WV Sorcerer Productions巫唱片聯合發行,所有曲目均由盛潔作曲並以電子大提琴演奏,從長音到噪音,每一首曲名都來自苯教中的神名,從最初形態的卵產生出的音樂,自由生滅。

gogoj a.k.a Sheng Jie, born in 1975, based in Beijing. Audio / visual artist, graduated from Ecole Supérieure Des Arts Décoratifs de Strasbourg in France, currently lives and works in Beijing. Works include video, film, sound, installation, and performance. She is one of China's foremost experimental musicians, active from the late '90s, "Oviparity" is her first full-length music album ever physically released.

這張專輯錄制於2018年的冬天,我一直覺得大提琴是一件悲情並總在敘事的樂器,象一個老者獨自深情的反復吟誦著一些過往。而在我日常的創作中“敘事”的概念又總是被刻意的排斥,或者說是一種不想觸及但又不得不去理會的部分。於是,用這樣一件對我來說具體又單一的樂器去演奏可以表達出一種很“笨”的真情,因為“真情”看起來總是直接炙熱的笨拙。這張專輯強調了“演奏者”這個概念,就是人,手指,力量,以及呼吸在演奏樂器時所產生的當下狀態,沒有過多的修飾和截取復制,也沒有精彩熟練的演奏技巧,每一軌音頻幾乎都是一遍又一遍的通條演奏並錄制,這其中保留了一些失誤,並做了合理的挑選。每一首曲名來自苯教中的神名,他們是宇宙之初的創世之神,他們的初始形態是一個個的卵,轉而生成一個個的空間,他們創造出的時空組成關系是鈍態的塊狀,這是苯教對宇宙和世界的描述,如果一定要給神和時空加以形態上的認知,那麽“鈍態”的空間是打破了線性概念最好的表述,就此音樂也產生了。卵生的宇宙觀充滿了不確定性,在一種搭建好的塊狀結構下自由生滅。

The album was recorded in the winter of 2018. I always feel that the cello is a kind of instrument that is full of sorrow and narration, like an aged intoning the past repeatedly and sadly alone. In my ordinary work, the concept of “narration” is always excluded on purpose. Or, it is taken as a part that I don’t want to deal with but have to. Thus, the cello, which is particular but unitary for me, can express a kind of true emotion which is very “clumsy”, because true emotions always seem to be clumsy by being direct and parched. This album emphasizes the concept of “performer”, which refers to the one, the fingers, the power and the immediate state of the breath when playing the instrument, without overmuch decoration and editing, or splendid and adept performing skills. Each track was performed and recorded from start to finish once and once again, in which some mistakes were retained and chosen reasonably. The name of each track is made from the names of gods in Bon religion. Those gods are the creators of the beginning of the universe. Their original form is egg, which transformed into space. The time and space structure they created was bulks of passivity. That’s Bon religion’s descriptions of the universe and the world. If certain cognition of forms must be given to gods and time and space, the best description that breaks the linear conception would be the space of “passivity”, in which music was born. The world view of oviparity is full of uncertainty. It grows and dies under a set structure of bulk.
