d0178257_23375913.jpg

そろそろ来年の話をしても鬼に笑われないよね。
新春箏弾き初めは大阪のシェで素晴らしいピアニストの河合拓始さんとギターの磯端伸一さんとのトリオです。私は河合さんのオルガン、トイピアノは初めてなのでワクワクしております。
シェドゥーヴルのリードオルガンの響きも楽しみですね。
磯端さんとの共演もかなり久しぶりです。
今から非常に楽しみです!
(即興と題していますが作品の演奏もあるかもしれません。)

磯端伸一(いそはた・しんいち)
1962年大阪府出身。12歳の頃よりギターを弾き始める。同時期にジャズのハーモニーやアドリヴに魅かれて、ギターの技術とベーシックな音楽理論を独学で習得。1982年から'85年まで東京でティム・ドナヒューにフレットレス・ギターとジャズ理論を学ぶ。1985年から高柳昌行氏に師事、高柳氏の私塾にて氏の亡くなる1991年まで楽器の基礎技術を矯正習得し、高柳氏の音楽美学と哲学を学ぶ。1994年より兵庫県在住。
感覚イメージと独自の理論から構成されるギター・ミュージックは、デリケートで静謐な響き、透明な音色、日本的な「間・余白」などに勤しむ。
1996年から始めた主に他分野のアーティストとのコラボレーションでもあるライフワーク、series "EXISTENCE" は美的共有を目指し継続されている。
