son ash ~ easy listening for the hearing impaired



son ash ~ easy listening for the hearing impaired (År & Dag, 2017)

«'Easy Listening For The Hearing Impaired' is a collection of timbral, rhythmical and structural studio experiments for analogue synthesizers, sequencers and reel tape. Part of the material stems from free improvisation, while other parts are composed from more strict and conformational principles. The album is concerned with the idea of beginning and becoming, and an increasing expanse is embedded in the progression of the album, that gradually unfolds its ramifications over time». År & Dag

After years of dedication to ambient music it can be hard to focus on weirdness and playfulness of modern electronic music. Surely it's not that hard in general, your mind just gets so comfortable with the idea of music without unexpectable turns and sharp angles that it becomes inseparable from daily routine. Even without calling it consumerism or escaping, it's enough already to say that one can easily become 'hearing impaired' to any other kind of music. With this in mind I finished my first listening to this record, staring to the ceiling, completely lost and totally inspired. Taken first as the controversial eye-catcher, the name of this album unfolded as a little epiphany – even having the all music of the world before us, we usually select just few styles for personal comfort remaining deaf to anything else. Voluntary deafness, John Cage's archenemy. Of course, there is contrariety to it, hunger to complexity and ingenuity, which drives so-called avantgarde to limits of reason. But beyond those extremes lays the vastness of music, which can be virtually anything for you. 

Son Ash brings a lot to this table, playing and experimenting, making fun of cliches. Sometimes it gets so calm and minimal that it can be mistaken for some Guenter Schlienz' new work, but just few moments later it turns your calmness into laughter, as it was saying 'haha, got you!' – yet within the bounds of decency. I doubt Andreas Pallisgaard (Son Ash mastermind) does it on purpose, at least I want it to be that way because it creates a picture of some kind of futuristic ambient music in my head – it still exists in terms of Satie & Eno, but already corrupted by this unavoidable post-internet vibe, when unexpected turns are not glitches of the system but are result of changed perception of the world, conscious switches. Mind changing it's focus same way as 20 years ago people changed TV channels during sleepless night, but with awareness why and what for. As we change interiors while drifting through the city to our homes. If classic ambient was pastoral in many ways and had its evil twin 'dark ambient', this new ambient cannot be named that easily. It's not dystopian or critical. It's not even weird or cynical. It's like the life itself – just changing. Just different for every one. But still it has to say something about all of us in common. Yes, this is easy listening, after all, but only if you forgot how to listen.

스웨디시마사지란무엇인가요?


스웨디시는스웨덴에서건너온마사지입니다.유럽에선이미엄청유명한마사지죠.
한마디로스웨디시자체를사전어로풀이하면, ”스웨덴스타일“ 또는 ”스웨덴어”입니다.
허나우리나라에선스웨디시란단어자체가일종의마사지행위의명칭이된신종마사지로
탄생했습니다.

정확하게말을하면스웨디시마사지또는스웨덴식마사지가올바른표현입니다^^
스웨디시에대해사전적인이야기를써넣었습니다.
사전적의미말고정말로스웨디시마사지는각국가별로어떻게관리를하고있을까요?
각국가별차이는있는지알아봐요.

한국에서는스웨디시마사지하면타이마사지나아로마마사지경락마사지와는다르게
압이적고부드럽고릴렉싱한마사지로통합니다.한국에서스웨디시는보통타국가의관리사가관리를해주는것이아니라한국인관리사들이관리를해줍니다.
보통부드러운관리다보니, 연령이높은관리사가관리할경우손이거칠염려때문에
비교적연령이낮은관리사가관리를해줍니다.

스웨디시마사지는각종아로마오일을이용하여바디에오일링을하고근육결을따라미끄럽게또깊숙하게근육에자극을주어혈액순환을촉진시켜근육을풀어줍니다.
서양을대표하는수기요법이라하며서양인들은이마사지를가장이상적이고과학적인
마사지라고평가하고있다고합니다.또한귀족느낌의마사지라고하기도하는데
고대에왕들이나왕족귀족들이즐겨받던마사지의기법이며, 기법자체가품위있고
바른매너의품격으로마사지에임합니다.

스웨디시의궁극적인마사지목표는혈액순환이라고볼수있습니다.
림프자극, 피부자극, 근막자극등을통해혈액순환을시켜피로를회복하고
몸의에너지를충전하는것이것이스웨디시마사지의기초이고근간입니다.

스웨디시마사지의특징은

스웨디시마사지는이성간의마사지가음양의조화를이루어더욱좋다고판단하며,
전신을오일로관리하기때문에전신을풀오일링하고밀착하여관리한다.
때문에불가피하게일회용속옷만착용하고옷을모두탈의합니다.
이때마사지를받는사람이수치심을느끼지않도록시술할부위만노출후
나머지는모두가리고관리해줍니다.
수면을유도하는관리이기도해서말을많이시키지않기도합니다.
허나, 관리사의성향에따라다르기때문에말을많이거는관리사도많이있습니다.
절제와, 클래식, 고급스러움, 매혹적인관리가바로스웨디시마사지라고보시면됩니다.

스웨디시마사지는 1인샵에서도관리를많이하고로드샵에서도관리많이합니다.
한국에서는예전건마가유행을많이했는데지금은
5대마사지로나뉘어진거같습니다.

스웨디시마사지, 로미로미마사지, 아로마마사지, 경락마사지, 타이마사지
예전에건마가많이나뉜거같습니다.

스웨디시마사지는남녀노소누구든한번받으면절대잊지못할엄청난마사지입니다.
릴렉스하고부드러운관리에부드러운웜오일거기에잔잔한음악까지
관리를받고나면무조건꿀잠이가능한최고의관리가바로 “스웨디시마사지입니다.”
