BOSGARREN HARIA: Music to be Read
New collection of texts from Gaztelupeko Hotsak
The music is to be listened to, but afterwards we talk about and comment on what we´ve listened to. We continuously exchange opinions on this or another topic, without even knowing why we like this song and another leaves us feeling indifferent.
The objective of the collection Bosgarren haria (The Fifth Cord) isnt to publish a series of horrible, theoretic texts, but rather, with the help of experts and music lovers, to create a historic review about that which our ears listen to; to build upon the consciousness of our musical background.
We are already familiar with the music, the songs dont have boundaries, and moreover, new technologies make it possible to exchange more rapidly. We havent drunk from the only fountain, as all of us fellow music lovers have been marked by diverse influences.
It often happens that we dont know too much about certain music, a singer or group that interests us. Frequently, that what we hear an announcer say or a comment written by a critic forms our entire knowledge.
Bosgarren haria tries to help to fill in that hole left in Basque.
