The aim of our indie label (OIL) is to promote and safeguard the musicians involved in extemporary music. Why a lot of musicians have chosen to turn themselves exclusively to “extemporary music”, and their way to concept it, it’s a main discussion topic. We think that a real expression of music, free from historic chains, economic interests and mainstream products, can (or could?) only be achieved by doing away with all codified languages. To make it possible, a deep “emptying” of the player’s musical personality is needed; perhaps, a temporary, witful “forgettfulness” of the music heard or played in the previous day could lead to a new relationship with themselves and the instrument, in order to inspire the unrestrainable freshness of a re-created approach.
A different definition of “extemporary music” , offered by a large number of musicians, lies in the concept of a mix between improvisation and composition, Though, according to us, improvisation refers quite exclusively to jazz, and composition to the score, which has nothing to do with extemporary music.
The quality of music we’re attempting to get should be self-creating. The musician turns into a medium throughout the sound flows and the result is hardly the more important thing.
The conception and diffusion of extemporary music presents some contradiction to work out: for instance, the release of a music cd defies the idea of “no-reproducibility” that music implies. So, we suggest even the recordings should be extemporary and to be taken before a sharing audience. We’ll call that result “ a document” instead of “a product”.
NED isn’t looking for collaborators rather for people who really believe in that vision of playing music, in order to keep the discussion true and free, and let the countertendency to be preserved.
