Краткий философский анализ выступлений Энди Флетчера (для фанатов с чувством юмора)

В первом ряду вдохновенно машет руками типический Труфан. Мы не видим его лица, но энергичные, ритмически выверенные жесты невольно склоняют нас к анатомо-физиологической экстраполяции, которая в свою очередь, базируясь на индивидуальном опыте субъекта интроспективно побуждает наше сознание к генерации визуальных и кинестетических образов. Мы почти видим его лицо, чувствуем сухость во рту и непроизвольное тоническое напряжение мимической мускулатуры. Рич аут, энд тач фэйс, одним словом.

Олицетворяя себя с ним, зритель ощущает готовность подпевать мёртвому цифровому голосу, искажённому псевдоаналоговыми эффектами. Это приводит нас к идее трансляции и эйфорического отождествления. Связи Флетчер - Дэвид, Труфан - Флетчер - Дэвид, Зритель - Труфан - Флетчер - Дэвид линейные по своей сути усиливаясь и преломляясь на метатекстовом уровне содержанием песни (флеш энд бон бай зэ телефон) фокусируются в одной точке.Таким образом проявляется главное действующее лицо спектакля - Дэвид, смысл присутствия которого в его отсутствии.

Он поёт о проповедниках, которые транслируют Бога массам, в свою очередь Флетчер транслирует им же Дэвида. В этой связи обнаруживается ряд любопытных следствий и параллелей. Во-первых это контекстуальная тождественность и олицетворение Дэвида и Иисуса. Во-вторых, общность цели проповедников и Флетчера : зарабатывание денег на передаче некой информации, к которой ретранслятор мало того, что не имеет никакого отношения, так ещё и искажает её в процессе передачи. Две этих смысловых параллели многократно пересечённые цепочками олицетворений героев и зрителя создают глубину и мощное внутреннее напряжение данного видеофильма, без сомнения представляющего подлинную находку для вдумчивого и склонного к рефлексии зрителя.<...>

Тёлочки очень оживляют эту эпическую пантомиму. Их образ дополняет общее впечатление .Они несут свет, но их свет явно холодный и фальшивый.<...>

Битва с компьютером в Сафер Вэле, есть не что иное как выдающийся образчик квазиконцептуальной пластической эстетики Флетчера, восходящей к постмодернистским интерпретациям хореографического наследия эпохи развитого рококо. Символ бессильного восстания человека против порабощающей его машины, в то же время им созданной, его же кормящей. Потому такой протест испокон веков являлся лишь бесславной имитацией и кривлянием.<...>

Появляющийся в кадре мужчина за спиной говнотитана трансцендентального диджеизма, который по всем законам жанра входит мягкой тигристой походкой, вызывает у внимательного зрителя пристальный интерес.На его лице блуждающая улыбка. Он медленно подходит к пульту, нажимает на кнопку и в этом месте видео обрывается.

Кто он? Какова его миссия? Автор предоставляет зрителю возможность ответить на эти вопросы самостоятельно. Впрочем, совпадение по времени актов нажатия и окончания фильма явно умышленно, это своеобразное зашифрованное послание зрителю, намёк на добрые намерения загадочного гостя, как бы наделённого чудесной возможностью остановить этот горький музыкальный катаклизм и разорвать цепь кармической причинности. В этом проявляется оптимистичная и жизнеутверждающая идея данного короткометражного фильма, который несомненно заинтересует зрителей разных возрастов и социальных групп.

Depeche Mode synth player heading to Dubai to DJ at Trilogy

Depeche Mode ★ www.depmode.com

Co-founder, synth player and the glue that holds British band Depeche Mode together, 49-year-old Andrew Fletcher is heading to Dubai next week for his first DJ set in the city. He’ll be playing Trilogy on March 11, in between planned stops in South Korea and Bahrain. We caught up with him to discover a few little-known facts.

He thinks Depeche Mode’s 30-year success story is pretty unique.

I don’t think it’s been a classic period for pop music. I feel British pop music has really disappointed over the past decade. There was a time in the early ’80s when eight of the top 10 records in America were all British. Now it’s hard to find one British act at all in the American Top 200.

He thinks it’s unlikely any X Factor or American Idol winners will ever see similar success.

To be honest, I don’t really think those shows are designed for that anyway. I think they’re designed for someone to be famous for a year. We come from the real, traditional background, you know, forming at school, playing youth clubs, playing pubs, and doing it the old way.

They played some strange gigs when they were starting out, but at least managed to get some material out of it.

We played one gig really early in our career, where half the PA was in one room and the other half was in another. It was two different stages, so we had to have half the band on one half of this stage set-up and the other half on the other. It was in Luxembourg, and I remember it distinctly because our bus broke down, and we were in this small town for about four days. We actually wrote a song about it, called "Oberkorn (It’s a Small Town)".

When he’s on the road, the last thing he wants to listen to is electronic music.

When I’m touring, I’m just really fed up of music, to be honest, because I’m playing music all night. I might just play some classical music in my room, or something to chill out to. Something different from what I’m expected to. With the DJing, I’m listening to loads of stuff every day, because obviously I’m trying to get the latest mixes, the best mixes, because I like to come across as being quite current. But there are worse jobs than sitting in front of your computer listening to loads of music!

He’s already familiar with Dubai’s sightseeing trail.

I was on holiday in Dubai a couple of years ago. We did the usual tourist thing: the safari on the jeeps, the camel racing, horse racing, went to the beach, had hubbly bubbly, or whatever you call it.

He isn’t sure what type of crowd he’ll draw to Trilogy.

Dubai seems to have people of every nationality, so I’m very interested in coming over to DJ. I really don’t know what to expect or what kind of crowd I’m going to be getting.

Nevertheless, he already has his set planned.

It’s going to be the best of electronic dance music over the past couple of years. I’m going to be putting some brand new Depeche Mode remixes in there, which should interest people, because we have a remix album out in about six weeks, so there will be lots of goodies!

It’s been a dream come true

10 March 2011

With Depeche Mode on a break after another bumper world tour, bassist/keyboardist Andy Fletcher is enjoying his time off – by touring the world as a DJ. The mild-mannered Englishman shares his thoughts on the group’s phenomenal success and their chequered personal lives

LOOK AT TODAY’S pop charts and you’re bound to see an assortment of dancefloor pounders, wistful ballads, rock anthems and catchy fluff aimed at teenage girls.

In fact, look at most pop charts in the last half-century and you’d find these four divisions have dominated in one way or another.

Which makes Depeche Mode that much more of an anomaly. Their pioneering brand of dark electronica surfaced in the early 1980s, with early singles Just Can’t Get Enough and See You capturing the public’s attention.

And yet while New Wave receded and synth-pop imploded, the Essex lads stood firm as a band who eschewed straightforward pop yet remained consistently popular.

Today the band are heralded as integral precursors to all manner of modern genres, and boast a fan base of loyal oldies and converted ‘noobs’ (proven with 2009 album Sounds of the Universe, which hit the top five in the UK and the US).

With Depeche Mode on a year-long break, bassist/keyboardist Andy Fletcher is continuing his second life as a DJ by embarking on a mini-world tour.

Playing Trilogy nightclub in Dubai tomorrow evening, Andy chatted to City Times about keeping upbeat.

What are the chief differences between touring alone and with Depeche Mode?

It’s a big difference. With Depeche it’s a gang – we’re kings of the city that night, VIP anywhere we want to go, and onstage we’ve got our mates with us. Plus if you’re DJing on your own and make a mistake, it’s down to you.

So it’s preferable to touring as a DJ?

No, I think the good thing about DJing is that it’s usually me and another guy, and everything’s small. You go to dinner with the promoters, you tend to meet more people. It’s just a totally different experience.

Among the band’s many accomplishments is selling 100 million singles and albums. Does the sheer size of Depeche Mode still stun you ever?

You have to remember that we’re one of the old-style bands that actually grew from nothing. We’ve played youth clubs, pubs, small theatres, big theatres, arenas, stadiums…we come from a more traditional background, which a lot of artists these days don’t have. They’re superstars overnight.

How long did it take you to become superstars?

Well, first of all we were big in the UK, then we started to do well in Scandinavia, then Germany, then France, then the big surprise was when we broke in America. We didn’t really feel our music was suited to the States at the time.

What do you think struck a chord with Stateside audiences?

I think they were fed-up with Foreigner and Journey and groups like that. It was when alternative radio started to break in America, and fortunately we were one of the first bands they played. From that came other major American acts like Pearl Jam and Nirvana.

Your music has a reputation for its seriousness. What do you think of that?

We like to think there’s a prevailing sense of humour. It’s slightly angst-ridden, but we do different styles.

And personally, do people tend to think you’re all gloomy by nature because of your music?

We’re not actually gloomy by nature – people who meet us face-to-face don’t think so. We take our music seriously, but we write songs about everyday life.

Looking back, how will you remember the 2009-10 ‘Tour of the Universe’ to accompany the group’s 12th album?

It started off disastrously – my dad died on the first date, and Dave (singer Dave Gahan) was diagnosed with cancer on the second date. But we got ourselves together and it turned out really well.

You were famous for your wild antics on tour in years gone by.

Our fame was accelerating at a very fast pace. America’s a tough country, but once you start breaking big there everything’s available to you. It just became too much. Dave was a heroin addict, I was in the midst of a big depression and Martin (guitarist/songwriter Martin Gore) was drinking a lot. But I feel that every person will go through a bad stage at one point in their life. I had to learn what my weaknesses were, handle them and move on. Now we’ve got families and it’s a different world for Depeche Mode.

With all the drama, are you surprised that your line-up has seen only two changes in more than 30 years?

We’re quite lucky in that we come from the same town, have the same friends and share the same sense of humour. We’ve also been lucky with the people we’ve met over the years, like Daniel Miller from Nude Records. We were able to progress at our own pace, and weren’t forced by a major label to over-commercialise what we were doing.

Many modern bands cite Depeche Mode as an influence, from The Pet Shop Boys to The Deftones.

We’re now at an incredible stage of our career where we seem to be loved by everyone. New artists always cite us – it’s really just been a wonderful career. You can hark back to those few years we were in trouble, but it’s been a dream come true.

What’s the secret behind the band’s ongoing popularity?

We’ve consistently written good songs, we’ve had a good record company…lots of reasons.

So everything’s tickety-boo today?

You sound like a bloody doctor! Yeah everything’s excellent. I’m off to have my breakfast.
