高橋健太郎が執筆した音楽小説が気になる。
Twitterや数々の音楽メディアなどで音楽批評、評論を行っているライター兼アーティスト高橋健太郎。そんな彼がなんと音楽小説を書いたというのだから驚きだ。 音楽家が書籍を執筆することは少なくないが、 基本的にはそれらの多くは自伝、あるいはそれに類するノンフィクション作品である場合が多い。 アーティストでありながら作家として有名な町田康も一応ジャンル的には文学(フィクション)に類されるような作品を描いているが、その内容はどちらかといえば半自伝のように思えなくもない。 事実彼高橋健太郎もこれまでには批評、評論作品や音楽論的な内容を取り入れた作品などノンフィクション作品をいくつか発表してきた。しかし今回彼が描いた小説はいかにもフィクション的な内容となっていそうだ。 ”音楽評論、レコーディング・エンジニア、音楽プロデュース、作曲、音楽配信サイト「ototoy」運営などなど、音楽業界で30年以上にわたって多彩な活躍を続けている高橋さんのもとに、「8年ほど前のある日、ふいにやってきた」物語。それに磨きをかけて完成させたこの『ヘッドフォン・ガール』は、随所に織り込まれた音楽をめぐっての設定やエピソード、仕掛けが音楽ファンを喜ばせてくれるとともに、 タイムスリップSFとしても、ミステリーとしても、さらには青春小説としても、多くの読者を唸らせるであろう上質のエンタテインメント作品です。” http://artespublishing.com/news/headphonegirl201601/ より引用 と紹介されている通り、SF的な世界観の作品となっているようであり、音楽がそれとどう絡み合っているか実に興味深い。まだ私は購入できていないが、早めに購入して読んでみたいものである。 正直音楽を言葉で表すという行為自体が実に難しく、それを音楽以外のアートフォームで表現することは想像もつかないほどに大変そうであるが、それゆえに私は個人的に音楽小説というものに心惹かれるし、そうした作品を描くという挑戦をした作品は是非とも読んでみたいのである。
What to Know With a Towing Service Sharjah
Sometimes, cars break down. If you've never had a car break down, all you have to do is wait, and it will happen. Vehicles are complicated, and the more complicated something is, the more problems it can have. We don't want our cars to break down, but if they do, a tow truck will come to our rescue. Tow trucks and towing service in Sharjah are our best friends when our cars break down. Most tow trucks fall into four main categories: When a car gets stuck in a ditch, culvert, or embankment, a boom is used to pull it out. Usually, a boom is not used for towing. It is used when the tow truck can't back up to the broken-down car safely. The hook and chain is another type of towing tool that many cheap towing companies use. It goes around the frame of the vehicle so that a boom winch can lift it, where it will rest on rubber mats. It lets the car be pulled by a single axle. The problem is that they can damage bumpers, so many towing near me are looking for other ways to move cars. The hook-and-chain lift has been replaced by the wheel lift. This method uses a big metal yoke that hooks onto either the front or back wheels. The tow truck then lifts the car so that it only rests on one wheel, usually the back wheel. The front wheels of cars that have front-wheel drive are raised. If the car has rear-wheel drive, the back wheels will go up. With flat-bed tow trucks, the whole car can be put on the back of the truck so it can be moved without being towed. Instead, the car is moved away from where it broke down. The only bad thing about a towing service is that it can be expensive. The price will go up the farther away you are from the repair shop. A good tip is to look into towing companies and keep a list of the ones in certain parts of the city, along with their per-mile rates. So, if your car breaks down, you can look at the list and choose the company that is closest to you. You can also do the same thing with mechanics to cut down on the distance your car needs to be moved. This will save you a lot of money on towing costs since most towing companies charge a certain amount per mile to move your car. The more you drive, the more money you spend, and you haven't even started fixing your car yet! When our cars break down, we're glad to see heavy equipment rental businesses and their tow trucks. When we need someone to pick us up and take our cars away, they are doing a service that we need. Just do a study to avoid paying too much. Which is the best place to find information in Sharjah? You will be able to use the map to find the closest business and download coupons for any discounts that place may be offering at the time.
