"Once-in-a-lifetime Experience of Mind-body Transformation" with Live Electronics

Tanihara, Sachi

To deepen the relation between electroacoustic music and happiness, it will be meaningful to explore the possibilities of Live Electronics as a once-in-a-lifetime experience that metamorphoses the mind and body into the best. Our minds, even our ways of life are changed by others’ words and this amazing agent of transformation is transmitted to others by vocalizing and is received as dynamic force through their bodies and souls. I believe that this enchanted sonic power can be further developed with electroacoustic music and that Live Electronics will be able to realize the profound “here and now” experience of self-reform. AI- generated music and artificial voice will progress at an accelerated pace, and in such a period, it will be significant for future humankind to pursue the music with “the one and only voice in the world” that is absolutely rooted in and produced from one's irreplaceable own body. Therefore, it is vital to create spatial music that can “enchant ourselves by chanting” with our own voices, aiming at the mind-body transforming experience “Voice Metamorphosis” in which vocalization unifies body, mind, sound and space. This sort of electroacoustic music could also re-harmonize human voice with great nature sound, like Pygmy’s polyphony music harmonized with forest sounds. In future, electronic music may play a role in bringing people back to the healthy and harmonious mind/body/sound world, giving us the power to live.
