Stevie Wonderが頭を振って唄う訳

いやぁ、こいつは気付かなかった。「生命の波動、音・声・ラジオ。人は耳から育ちゆく?」と題したドキュメンタリー作家の河内紀氏と漫画家の内田春菊さんとの対談での一節。東京銀座資生堂ビルで、2004/06/11に執り行われたもの。音に関する感性や、音に関する記憶のやりとりがあった後、内田さんが、スティーヴィー・ワンダーの話題を振る。


内田:スティービー・ワンダーっていつもこうやって頭を振っているじゃないですか。あれ、なんで振っているのか訊いた人がいるんです。そしたら、「こうして頭を振っていると自分の周りの空気が動いて、それがまた返ってきて部屋の広さがわかるんだ」って答えたらしいんですよね。(会場感動)
河内:それはそうでしょう。
内田:え!マジ?ジョークだと思ってた。本当にそう思います?
河内:もちろん。訓練すれば、人間の耳はけっこうすごいんですよ。ラジオドラマつくってたときには、そのドラマの舞台になる部屋の広さをまず考えましたね。(中略)。それとね、俳優が、自分が今どれくらいの部屋にいるかを考えないで喋ると、ドラマにリアリティーが出ない。(中略)。だから、スティービー・ワンダーもこうやって頭を振って、自分の声の届く距離とか、その響きの限界を聞いていたんじゃないかと思うんです。

「資生堂WORD vol.41(20040809号)」より抜粋。


うーん、言われてみれば、なるほどぉ。まるで、超音波を発して、それが壁から跳ね返ってくる音で自らの位置を知る洞窟のこうもりのよう。きっと、スティーヴィーなら、目が見えなくても、ステージの上で体を揺らしながら、会場の広さだけでなく、更に、観客の具合がどんなものだかも、しっかり感じ取っているに違いない。「Oh My God。あそこで、一緒に唄ってくれてるのは嬉しいけど、音程がメタメタに外れてるよ」なんてのは、当然で、もしかしたら「ん?、二階の最前列のあそこだけちょっと、ノリが周りとずれてるな。」なんて事までちゃんと、把握してたりして。

私が、ライブでノル時、周りと同じノリ方するのがどうもテレ臭くて、何とはなしに、体を横に揺らしてみたりしてたのだが、思えば、これは、実に表層的なStevie Wonderの猿真似でしかなかったのだ。今度、横に揺れる時は、ちゃんと、耳も澄まして、会場の空気を感じ取るようにしてみよう。(って、ノってる時にそんなの出来るのか?)。

実際に、ちょっと、左右に体を揺らしてみる。壁まで1mもないのにもかかわらず、空気の動きは、感じ取れない。でも、散髪した後、自転車に乗ると、耳の周りの空気に流れを感じる事はあるし、裏通りを爆走して、見通しの悪い交差点に差し掛かった時、左右から車がこないかどうか、注意を張り巡らす一瞬は、かなり、耳を澄ませていて、そこからの判断は、かなり、的確だし、金曜の夜の喫茶店に入ると、店内のざわめきから一瞬にして、いつもより混雑している事を知る事が出来るし、競馬場では、目を瞑っていても、自分の馬券が的中したかどうかが判る、かどうかは不明であるが、これを機会にもう少し、耳を使う事に自覚的になってみようと、思った。

Clash of Clans is apparently an enjoyable, challenging video game that some would argue has got some educational worth because it is a game of tactic.

I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.
