今回試験的に並べられた1オクターブ分(12台)のラジカセが、個性的な音を奏で始める。最終的にはおよそ50台を引き連れることになったこの音楽装置は、いよいよ「巨大化」をはじめる。さて果たしてどう奏でるべきか。正解はない。そこには演奏者に託される無数の可能性が横たわっている。ライブゲストである嶺川貴子と開発者は深い森に分け入っていく。

 Twenty boomboxes (for one octave) that were lined up for testing start to play unique sounds. The musical machine is going to be gigantic, with around 50 boomboxes at the end. There is no right answer to the question, “How should it be played?” Instead, infinite possibilities are offered to players. Takako Minekawa, the guest performer, and the developers continue their experimentation as if going deep into a forest.

ラジカセの魔力。いまや時代の隅に追いやられながらも、アナログ時代生まれ特有の強烈な個性を持つ“機械”。「ラジカセ・メロトロン」という音楽装置の開発は先ず、このラジカセが持つ(現代の電化製品では感じることのできない)アナログ的特性を見つめ直し、その醍醐味を味わうことから始まる。なにせ30台以上のラジカセをひとつの「装置」へと束ねるのだから、ラジカセの機種ごとのクセ(音の響き、再生の立ち上がり速度など)によって生じる演奏時の音の「揺らぎ」は、そのままこの装置の最大の魅力になるとともに、そこには想像を超える困難が待ち構えているはずだ。装置開発のための実験・調整が繰り返される。

The magical charm of a boombox — it is a “machine” with a strong character specific to the analog era, which has become marginal in our times. The development of the “Boombox Mellotron” must start from reconsidering the analog characteristics of boomboxes, which contemporary electrical goods do not have, and savoring the essence. Since we are going to assemble more than 30 boomboxes into “apparatus,” the “fluctuation” of sound due to the tendencies of each model (tones, playback response, etc.) must become the most attractive feature of the apparatus and at the same time the cause of unexpected difficulties. They experiment and adjust again and again…
