奇才神代明夫氏のAppleⅡ

a0163788_21571874.jpg



先日、アップルコンピューターの創始者でもありCEOである
スティーブ・ジョブズ氏のCEO辞任が報道された。
ジョブズ氏は一度アップル社を追われているが1990年代に復帰、その後、iMac、Mac OS X、iPod、MacBook、iPhone、iPad iTuneなどのヒット商品を次々に生み出した。

ジョブズがアップル社を立ち上げたのは1976年、年齢は20歳である。そして
世界初の個人用コンピューターAppleⅡの発売は1977年である。

さてワタクシの音楽の師匠である
奇才神代明夫氏は、なんと発売年にこのAppleⅡを手に入れていたように思う。ワタクシはよく彼の自宅に遊びに行っていて、このAppleⅡを見せてもらった記憶がある。神代氏もワタクシもまだ学生であった。当時1ドル270円の時代、大卒初任給が10万円のときに40万円もした代物である。そんなものを買うなんて大したものだ。改めて師の
先駆性に驚く。

神代氏はいまもMac遣いで意欲的に作品を発表している。
ジョブズと神代氏は1歳違いであり同時代人である。

虫の声 高橋竹山




まだ8月だが道端で秋の虫が鳴いている。
虫の声を聴くと津軽三味線「初代高橋竹山」を思い出す。

門付芸出身である竹山は、のちに絶大な人気を博し「津軽三味線」を全国津々浦々に知らしめる存在となった。また国内各地でジャズプレイヤーと共演するなど革新的な演奏活動も意欲的に行った。ワタクシの学生時代、渋谷ジャンジャンで定期ライブもやっていたと思う。国際的な評価も高く1980年代にはアメリカやヨーロッパでも演奏している。

没後、晩年の様子がNHKのドキュメンタリー番組で放映された。10年ほど前のことだ。

そのなかで、竹山が鳥の声や虫の声を集めていたことが紹介されている場面がある。
竹山自身が、ヤマに行くと鳥、虫、風・・・いろいろな音がしてどれも面白い、と語っている。
ワタクシが鳥や虫の声を聴くと竹山を思い出すのはこのシーンによる。

この番組には竹山最後の演奏シーンが収録されていて印象的だった。
地元津軽のある健康ランドの昼下がり、ガラガラの休憩広間で演奏している竹山を誰かがホームビデオで撮影したものだ。
聴いている人、何か食べている人、座布団を枕に寝ている人、そういう十人くらいのお客の前で演奏する竹山。世界に名をはせ、数々の殊勲を受けた竹山の演奏はこれが最後となり、その後、癌で他界する。

番組のインタビューで、三味線弾きも外国の音楽を聴かなきゃだめだ、ということを言っている。実際に竹山はクラシックやジャズをたくさん聴いていたようである。

このドキュメンタリー番組を録画したビデオテープが手元にある。数少ない大事なビデオテープのひとつだ。

先週、イタリアのベネチア市で開催されている「第54回ベネチア・ビエンナーレ」に行ってきました。隔年開催されている国際芸術展で第1回が1895年、100年以上の歴史があります。戦後は前衛、現代美術作品が中心になっています。

主会場が二つ、そのほか街のあちらこちらにも作品が展示されています。

a0163788_2271314.jpg


主会場のひとつ「ジャルジーニ会場」は大きな公園、国別パビリオン(展示館)が30棟ほど点在しています。そのなかにある日本館は1956年に建設だそうです。かつてこの美術展を舞台に、国と国が威信をかけ激しく「優秀賞」を争っっていたこともあって、パビリオンは万博のそれのように悪趣味です。

a0163788_2282590.jpg


ところでベネチアという都市は、町全体が浅い海に夥しい数の木杭を打ち込んだ人工土台の上に作られています。だからこの公園の「地面」や「土」は貴重でめずらしいものです。ベネチア島内は車がないので公共交通は船(水上バス)、「ジャルジーニ船着き場」の目の前が入口です

a0163788_2285995.jpg


もうひとつの主会場「アルセナール会場」、旧国立造船所で使われていた石造の細長い倉庫が展示会場です。長さが数百メートルありますが一本道なので作品の観賞には便利です。こちらは大半が個人作品スペースに充てられ、国別展示は8カ国だけです。

a0163788_2295222.jpg


作品もさることながら倉庫自体の堂々たる佇まいや内部の鉄鋼構造、リフト装置などが魅力的です。

a0163788_2210396.jpg


「アルセロール船着き場」から運河沿いを少し入ったところが入口ですが、この船着き場は便数が少ないようです。両会場は歩いて10分くらいの距離でわざわざ船に乗る必要はありません。

チケットは20ユーロ 1日券だけのようでした。
会期は11月27日までですのでぜひ!
と言っても遠いし飛行機代や宿泊代も大変です。2年に1回の開催、何かのついでがあれば寄ってみたらどうでしょう。

作品の一部は日をあらためて紹介します。
