“在二十世纪后半叶、尤其是六七十年代的日本,涌现了大量探索另类表达形式的音乐,从民谣到自由爵士,再到朋克和噪音,它们常常横跨多个流派,同时也孕育出许多全新的‘混血’风格。许多至今仍然突出的日本独立音乐家都发端于那个非同寻常的时期。

在这场讲座里,我会试着探析是什么样的空间和环境让当时这些发展得以实现,尤其着眼于流行文化主流之外的空间与渠道的构筑,包括创造力、社会、媒体和经济等各个层面。”

“Post-war Japan, particularly in the 1960s and 1970s, saw an extraordinary flourishing of alternative expressive forms of music across multiple genres, from folk to free jazz to punk to noise, as well as the development of many new hybrid forms. Many currently prominent Japanese independent musicians first emerged in this period.

In this talk, I propose to examine the spaces and the conditions that permitted these developments. In particular, I wish to look at the creation of spaces and channels outside the mainstream of popular culture, including creative spaces, social spaces, media spaces, and economic spaces.”
