失業 – ルイ・アンドリーセン讃

失業保険について“ “音楽という仕事を得て失業に至る” “音楽性の違いによりユニットを解散”・・・といった(実体験を含む)失業にまつわるストーリーを表しました。書き進めていくなかでオランダの作曲家ルイ・アンドリーセンのいくつかの作品と思想に共通する特徴を見出し、かつて私が憧れた作曲家の影を無意識に投じていたのかもしれません。脳裏にちらつく氏から離れつつ、寄り添いつつ、私が“いま”可能な表現を目指した一作となりました。

Unemployment - homage to Louis Andriessen
The stories about unemployment are depicted in the composition. They are "About unemployment insurance", "Getting music job leads to unemployment" and "Gap of the musicality causes unit breaking up". Some of them are true stories of mine. Along composing, I found the characters in my works have something in common with those of the works and thoughts of Dutch composer, Louis Andriessen. It is possible that I followed his steps unconsciously. Still sometimes trying to keep a proper distance and sometimes going along with him, composing this piece was biggest challenge for me.
