Zappanale #29

Mal wieder ein großartiges Festival ... und was für tolle Begegnungen. Diesmal lernte ich Peter M. kennen, der mir anbot, einige Abbildungen von Bootlegs zur Verfügung zu stellen, die hier noch nicht zu sehen sind.

 

Ein Angebot, das ich sehr gerne annahm, leider völlig ahnungslos, was da an Arbeit auf mich zukommen sollte. Es handelte sich nämlich nicht nur "um ein paar Bilder", sondern um hunderte von Veröffentlichungen auf dem "Frank Zappa Kids" Label. Von diesem sollen inzwischen ca. 300 Bootlegs auf dem Markt sein.

 

Die Bilder der ersten 60 Bootlegs habe ich inzwischen bearbeitet und sie hier nun eingestellt. Weitere werden folgen. Das ist mit viel Zeitaufwand verbunden, da Peter erst fotografieren muss und dann von mir die Bearbeitung erfolgt.

 

Auf der BOOTLEGS Seite werdet ihr fündig...

Ingo Meyer: Frank Zappa. 100 Seiten

Sein viel zu früher Tod jährt sich im Dezember zum 25. Mal: Frank Zappa war die wohl facettenreichste Ikone der amerikanischen Musikgeschichte. Der schräge Humor seiner anarchischen Auftritte polarisierte. Immer wieder überschritt er Grenzen – zwischen Gattungen und Musikstilen, zwischen E und U. Während er in Amerika vorrangig als Rockmusiker prominent blieb, verfolgte er in Europa eine Karriere als Komponist und arbeitete etwa mit dem Dirigenten Pierre Boulez oder dem renommierten Ensemble Modern zusammen. Ingo Meyer gelingt das Porträt eines Ausnahmekünstlers, der permanent provozierte, dessen Provokationen aber niemals Selbstzweck waren.

Totengrundgespräch – Arno Schmidt trifft auf Frank Zappa

 

„Nu, der olle Schmidt hätte ja wahrscheinlich den minder ollen/dollen Zappa nicht leiden mögen, zumal der Musik machte, die Schmidt ja partout nicht den Transistor-Seelen entnehmen mochte. Aber meine Vermutung, dass man (ich) die zwei mal bildlich verkuppeln könnte, erhärtete sich seit meiner Bekanntschaft mit Bernd Rauschenbach, der eine schöne & große Zappa-Sammlung besitzt. Das erfuhr ich allerdings erst, nachdem ich den Totengrund schon im Kopf hatte.“

(RWLE Möller, Briefwechsel 1989)

 

Auf die Aufführung eines unterhaltsam-ironischen Dialogs zwischen den beiden Protagonisten des Ölgemäldes Totengrund (auf dem Cover des Buches) oder Ich bin ein Heidediener, Blattanbeter, Windverehrer, in dem

RWLE Möller Schmidt und Zappa 1985 tatsächlich verkuppelte, folgen anhand von ausgewählten Passagen aus dem Schriftwerk Arno Schmidts weitere literarische Annäherungen an die versierten Schmidt-Szenerien des Künstlers.

FRANK ZAPPA - Ausgewählte Werke

SWR Symphonieorchester, Dirigent: Wayne Marshall

 

"Ein Komponist ist ein Typ, der arglosen Luftmolekülen seinen Willen aufzwingt, oft mit Hilfe argloser Musiker." Ob Frank Zappa sich selbst eher als Komponist verstand oder als Rockmusiker oder vielleicht als Satiriker des Musikbetriebs, hing von Phasen, Stimmungen, Kontexten und Gelegenheiten ab. Tatsächlich hat er zahlreiche Instrumentallwerke geschrieben, auch für größere Ensemble- oder Orchesterbesetzungen. Edgard Varese, Anton Webern, Maurice Ravel, Igor Strawinsky, Karlheinz Stockhausen und Charles Ives gehörten zu seinen Helden der so genannten E-Musik. "Linie Zwei" bringt Wayne Marshalls Auswahl aus Zappas Partituren, deren Aufführungen der Komponist nur teilweise, aber glücklich erst in der späten Zusammenarbeit mit dem Ensemble Modern erlebte.

New West Street Session Release

Hello eveeryone!!! I hope you enjoy this free, improv, warts and all...

Thank You for Your time and Patience 

Stephen Chillemi

 

West Street Five is the second West Street Session Release. Unlike the initial release, it is very much Electric. Over a one week period in May 2018, Steve Chillemi and I invited various musical friends over for series of live recording sessions. These have become the West Street Sessions. There were 5 sessions involving 8 musicians and about 15 hours of live recordings. Recordings were made on one or two Zoom H6 recorders depending on the number of tracks needed. Steve and I are common to all the recordings. Thanks to Chris Venter for technical assistance and the use of much-recording equipment. We are very grateful to all the musicians that took the time to participate.

Compositions by Frank Zappa

Heikki Poroila: „You are reading an enhanced (corrected, enlarged and more detailed) PDF edition in English of my printed book Frank Zappan sävellykset (Suomen musiikkikirjastoyhdistys 2015, in Finnish).

 

I try to explain shortly the reasoning behind this yet-another-Frank-Zappa-monograph. The idea of listing all the compositions by Frank Zappa is an obsessive project typical for music librarians. It was matured during the years I was forced to tell many Finnish Zappa fans that the book Zappa äänitteillä [Recorded Zappa, 1995] by me and HEIKKI KARJALAINEN was out of print and in no circumstances was I willing to compile a new edition of its material.“
