DE – Raga CDs des Monats (07/2016): NADA – Ein Konzept von Klang (Teil 1 und 2)

Posted by ElJay Arem (IMC OnAir) on July 17, 2016

“NADA – Ein Konzept von Klang”
– Teil 1: Ahata – Der äussere Klang | Teil 2: Anahata – Der innere (stille) Klang.

Im Sanskrit heisst „Großer Klang“: Maha Nada. Er lehrt uns die heilende Wirkung der Ragas. Ihr komplexes Regelwerk zielt nur auf eines: auf ein bestimmtes Klangbild. Mit diesem äusseren Klang – ahata nada – befasst sich der erste Teil, auf Anahata Nada („Der Weg vom äusseren zum Inneren Klang“) kommen wir im zweiten Teil unserer heutigen Sendung “Nada – ein Konzept von Klang” ausführlich zu sprechen.
Schon In einer früheren Sendung „Nava Rasa-s, die 9 Stimmungsbilder der indischen Ragas“ haben wir erfahren, dass der Begriff des Schönen nicht vorkommt. Das emotionale Bild beschränkt sich auf Liebe, Lachen, Mitleid, Zorn, Mut, Angst, Schrecken, Staunen und Gelassenheit.

Ragas beschönigen unserem Gehörsinn nicht, anders als in den visuellen Künsten. Es geht um das Erfahren einer höheren Wirklichkeit und der Wahrheit, dem Echten = niranjana (pure).

Man ist sich in den indischen Künsten, der Musik, dem Tanz und Theater bewusst darüber, dass das Empfinden eines harmonischen Zustands von der individuellen Vorstellung und subtilen Wahrnehmung des Betrachters bestimmt wird.  Erst aus dem Ganzen von Materie, Geist, Empfindung und dem Leben selbst wird das Schöpferische im Klang der Musik sichtbar. Im Harmonischen der Musik ist das Ursprüngliche sichtbar, wir selbst werden sichtbar. Harmonie bedeutet also Vollkommenheit, eine Einheit von wahrhaftiger, ungetrübter Wahrnehmung durch den Wahrnehmenden. Es ist das indische Verständnis von Selbstverwirklichung. Um dieses Originäre zu erfahren, das Schöpferische des Universum, in dem Gott selbst innewohnt, bedarf es der geistigen Schulung.

Katyayana (c. 200 BCE)

Katyayana (c. 200 BCE)

Im Sanskrit existiert der Begriff Shabda, d.h. Klang oder Rede. Der Mathematiker, vedische Priester und Sanskrit-Grammatiker Katyayana aus dem 3. Jahrhundert vor Christi Geburt beschreibt Shabda als „Rede von ewiger Gültigkeit“. Der Klang in der menschlichen Sprache beinhaltet also Beides, das Ursächliche, das unterschwellig im Klang zum Ausdruck gebracht wird und die eigentliche Bedeutung im Sinne des Wortes.

OM (oder Aum) ist die Silbe, die im Menschen als die erste Schwingung und Resonanz des nicht-dualistischen Universums angelegt ist. Hierzu wird von  Bhartrhari, einem Autor aus dem 5. Jahrhundert, Shabda als innerer Klang beschrieben. Shabda ist eine vereinigende Erkenntnis, identisch mit Brahman, dem höchsten Bewusstsein. Mit Brahman kann eine höhere Wirklichkeit erfahren werden. Shabda existiert und schwingt in jedem Lebewesen. Es ist eine Art Grundton der Welt. Dieser innere Klang, Anahata Nada, kann vom Menschen mit dem „inneren Ohr“ gehört werden. Mit Klangyoga, Nada Yoga und dem Hören von Ragas, dem äusseren Klang – Ahata Nada – kann man sich diesem „inneren Klang“ näheren.

special feature III for India Music Week (N.Y.): Music, Sound & Language (part 1 and 2)

special feature III for the India Music Week (New YorK): MUSIC, SOUND & LANGUAGE
part 1: Structure of Music & Language | part 2: Interaction – Music & Communication

The relationship between music and language, between sounds and the spoken word or vocals is a very special one. The grammarians of Sanskrit, the ancient Indian science language regard music and language as divergent aspects of one and the same phenomena.

With Indian classial music (Hindustani, Carnatic) there is a multiplicity in common under the topic to “music and language “, which is the bases of the occidental harmonics, dated back to the founder of the mathematical analysis of music by Pythagoras of Samos who had evidenced empirically the harmonic intervals – approximately written before 500 B.C. .

Music seems to be reflected far less vaguely in us than it had been granted so far. Rather our perceptions of sounds are defined very exactly by outlined possibilities and borders. The audiomental system has greater importance than one had assumed recently.

As shown by recent studies the perception of music and ‘music making’ incorporate nearby almost all regions of the brain. The widespread acceptance that music is processed in the right brain hemisphere and language in the left had completely been wrong. The current research shows that language and music are assimilated almost identically. The profound emotional content of music, from felicity to sadness affects particularly stimulating our brain and also produces frequently physically intensively perceptible reactions to the listener.

IMW_logo-newMusic settles visibly in our life, in brain activities which are measurable nowadays and made vividly visible with modern medical imaging techniques e.g. (functional) magnetic resonance tomography (MRT) or Magnetoencephalography (MEG), see picture below.

In part 1 of IMC – India meets Classic’s special feature “Music, Sound & Language” is presented the structure of music & language. The  following part 2 will bring light up the social psychological meaning of music for individual and community interaction processes influenced by the nature of music as communication form.

Note: IMC OnAir’s radio show “music and language” in two parts (2x 58 min.) represents a fundamental introduction regarding the multiplicity of sciences involved (music ethnology,  anthropology, language and social sciences, neuro sciences, psychology, computer sciences (artificial intelligence) among others).

Description:

Ruchira_Panda_5_001_4

Ruchira, an outstanding vocalist groomed in the Kotali gharana has earned an enviable distinction amongst the younger musicians in the realm of Hindustani Classical Music. The competent upholder of this rich heritage was born in high traditional family of educationalists, arts and music. She had the privilege of being initiated to this parampara and went under the protégée of the great maestro musician Pandit Manas Chakraborty, her one and only Guru. The master mind of her guru noted the quality of her gifted and rare voice and creative capabilities. Being a perfectionist and trend setter his strict and vigilant guidance moulded her musical genius into a unique blend of highest order. Her gayaki speaks out for her keen interest in aesthetics, spiritual awareness and serenity which is seldom found in modern days. She carefully keeps up with the purity and nuances of the Kotali gharana aligning with the multifarious gayaki of her Guru and his predecessors. The flawless manner in which she brings out the texture of the ragas and taans shows that a rigorous training, hard, and sincere labour has gone into her making as a vocalist and culminated her craftsmanship to what it is- perfect and finished to every detail. Her cognition and remarkable ability to execute intricate combinations of notes in rare ragas, specially her delineation of innovative sargams and taans confirm her eagerness to reach out to wider and wider dimensions. Her voice, the crest of a class can execute a total feast of melody and classicism in khayal, thumri and other semi classical forms. Her music is not only perfect craftsmanship but a rare blend of immaculate precision and emotive imagination, which takes the listeners into a peaceful journey through the unseen and unheard marvels of a new world. She craves for perfection and attains it with ease, the more she attains bigger becomes her reach, richer she becomes newer becomes her dimension. To her, Music is not only an art to perform but a love to live with – it’s a voyage towards eternity that can only be realized by feeling one and the same with Music.
