Lászlo HORTOBÁGYI (Hungary)

Lászlo Hortobágyi (1950, Budapest, Hungary) musician, artist, researcher. He has taken courses in Music Theory, Philosophy and Indological Studies. Since 1967 he has arranged and made several trips to North-India in order to undertake deeper philological studies, to visit various public and private libraries and to work in the archives. Hortobágyis stays in India were not only devoted to research and creative activities (he practiced playing traditional instruments rudra-vina, sitar, surbahar, tabla and others, did some musical and every-day-life household recordings), but he intensively worked at his personal development. In 1980 he established in Budapest a musical society Gayan Uttejak Mandal, that was named in honour of Hindu-Moslem community of musicians that existed in Budapest from 1884 till 1917 and was headed by V. N. Bhatkhande. The members of the society Gayan Uttejak Mandal, established by Hortobágyi, besides studying General Philosophy and History of the Oriental Music, pay a special attention to the theory and practice of traditional Hindu-Moslem music. The musicians communication and their creative development take place within theoretical colloquia and lectures, sessions on comparative musical analysis, workshops, and also individual work in the studio. Occasionally the society Gayan Uttejak Mandal arranges and conducts concerts and sessional performances of Hungarian and foreign musicians. In 1984 Hortobágyi founded the archives The Oriental Music Archive, which comprises of a large number of musical compositions and topical information, and which at present is the only and unique for the Central Europe. The archives exist alongside the musical studio Gayan Uttejak Studio and the Gayan Uttejak Orchestra (also established by Hortobágyi). Hortobágyi covers in his activities a wide sound-musical range, using along with authentic instruments all the possibilities of the modern computer processing. His productions, created both in accordance with the traditions of classical Indian music and also experimental-noise, were repeatedly released at various recording studios in the Netherlands, Germany, Greece, USA, France, England, Hungary. He is the author of more than twenty solo and collective CD-releases, including the following: Transreplica Meccano (HM, 1989), Traditional Music of Amygdala (Erdenklang, 1991), The Arcadian Collection (Erdenklang, 1994), Transglobal and Magic Sound of Lászlo Hortobágyi (W. Network Medien, 1996), Mémesis (Erdenklang, 1998), Chill Out (Tua-Nova Tekk, 1997), Songs from Hungisthán II (Arka Sound, 1999), Fata-organa (BMC, 2000) and many others. He has published a number of articles on the issues of comparative musical studies, including such as: Music of Hindustan and Carnataka, Computer Music Systems, Virtual Mimesis of the Music, A Possible Bi-tonality System, The Polyphonic Shruti System and so on. He has produced a series of paintings cyberaga-mala and mem-delineations. He is a member of the Advisory Council of the Research Project of computer music at the Institute of Musicology, Hungarian Academy of Sciences (Budapest). Lászlo Hortobágyi lives and works in Budapest (Hungary).



"Yin" Yang.
(fragment, on CD-edition: 4'29")

Each of the ethno-musical
elements in this music is digital
reedited and restructured. None
of the figuring ethno-phrases exist
in reality, but rather they consist
of small samples (20 msec . 5 sec)
that are digitally selected and
rearranged from the original,
raw sound recordings.
The technique is based on a
PCM-morphology making use
of an old FTT spectrum analysis
algorithm to control a virtual
overtone synthesis process.
This software was
developed by L. Hortobagyi (2000).
2000 Lazlo Hortobagyi, Budapest.
