Kyouko & Mystia Choujuu Gigaku

第百二十六季 神無月の四

Season 126 (2011), 4th of Kannazuki (October)

不良妖精にパンクライブが好調?

Punk concerts favorable to delinquent fairies?

妖怪音楽に新しい風

A New Trend in Youkai Music

人間の里から博麗神社へ向かう道で、定期的にゲリラライブが行われている事が判った。時刻は人間が寝静まった真夜中から始まり、賑やかな演奏は里にも響いてくる。

Many have learned of the "guerilla concert" events happening regularly on the road leading from Human Village to the Hakurei Shrine. They are timed to start in the middle of the night while humans are sleeping soundly, and their rousing performances echo through the village.

ライブを行っているのはミスティア・ローレライさん(夜雀)と幽谷響子さん(山彦)のコンビからなる鳥獣伎楽ちょうじゅうぎがくだ。

The ones performing the concerts are Ms. Mystia Lorelei (a night sparrow) and Ms. Kyouko Kasodani (a yamabiko), forming a combination called the Choujuu Gigaku[1] ("dance of bird and beast").

騒音としか思えないノイズたっぷりの爆音、メッセージ性の高い歌詞と音程を無視したシャウト系の音楽が夜の幻想郷に鳴り響く。奇抜な服装で髪を振り乱しながら歌うその個性的な音楽のスタイルは、幻想郷には馴染みの薄いパンクロックというものだとか。

With explosive sounds that you can only define as "noise", shouting music that has strong protesting lyrics and being off key resounds throughout the night in Gensokyo. While sporting eccentric clothing and messed up hair, the unique musical style in their singing is being called, unfamiliarily to Gensokyo, "punk rock".

「パンクってのはね。抑圧された不満を爆発させる物よ。魂の叫びなのよー!」

"What's punk? It's an explosion of suppressed dissatisfaction. It's the roar of the soul!"

ボーカルの響子さんはそう説明する。抑圧された不満とはいったい何なのだろうか、その辺りを聞いてみた。

Ms. Kyouko gives such an explanation. I then asked her what exactly the suppressed dissatisfaction was.

「うーん、毎日庭掃除したりお経唱えたりするだけだからつまらないしー。あと結跏趺坐は痛いしー。」

"Well, all I ever do every day is clean and recite sutras, you know? Sitting in lotus position hurts a lot, too.

どうやらお寺の修行が辛いだけの様だ。でもその程度の不満でも歌にすると、若者の支持が得られるというのは間違い無いようである。この取材をした時も、騒ぎたい妖精や不満のある妖怪達で賑わっていた。

It seems it's just a case of the temple's training being harsh. But even with that level of dissatisfaction is put into a song, it seems doubtless that it will gain the support of young people. At the time of this report, there were plenty of lively fairies wanting to make noise and dissatisfied youkai.

しかしこのパンクライブには苦情が寄せられている。その多くが騒音被害だ。真夜中に大きな音で歌っているのだから当然である。その苦情に対し響子さんは

However, these punk concerts do not come without complaints. Most of them are concerning the noise damage. They are inevitable, since they are singing loudly in the middle of the night. When asked about the complaints, Ms. Kyouko replied:

「山に登って『ヤッホー!』って叫んでいるのは良くて、私が歌うのが駄目だなんておかしいわ」

"It's kind of strange that it's okay for people to shout 'yahoo!' at the top of their lungs at the top of a mountain, but it's not okay for me to sing."

私が取材した限りでは、ライブとはいえただ爆音の演奏と、それに負けじと大声で愚痴を叫んでいるだけで、お世辞にも“歌”とは思えなかった。彼女らの不満の叫びが静かにしたい人間や妖怪の不満を生み、新たな火種にならない事を望む。

From what I gathered, what they call a "concert" is just a performance of explosive sounds and a strong spirit shouting complaints really loud, and I can't even call it anywhere near a "song". It gives way to dissatisfaction among youkai and humans that want the dissatisfied shouting to be quiet, and so I hope this won't grow into some kind of conflict.
