PROG FOLK
IX dio
Epilog

Istražujući djela izvornog vala umjetnika i njihovih suvremenih ekvivalenata, pronalazeći veze između različitih razdoblja i prostora, otkrivajući djelomično skrivenu priču o glazbenoj avanturi, temelji ovog projekta leže u biti na važnosti ponovnog otkrivanja, očuvanja, kontinuiteta i širenja tradicionalne glazbene manifestacije s popularnim korijenima.

Što dulje slušamo njihovu ostavštinu, lakše ćemo pronaći osebujne elemente, klasične geste plus mnoge procvate meke psihodelije, idiosinkratičnih progresivnih prizvuka, acid-folka i svih ostalih okusa koji ulaze u očaravajući svijet prog folka. Potpuno je logično da se riječ “kult” često koristi za opisivanje njihovih kreacija.

Prog folk je vrlo zanimljiv žanr, jer je na neki način čudan spoj simplističkih i modernih instrumenata te načina na koji pokušava dati važne poruke o tradiciji, odnosno kulturi koja bi zasigurno trebala zavladati u današnjem društvu, jer upravo kulturom mijenjamo svijet. Stoga, želimo nadograditi bogato svjetsko, naročito europsko nasljeđe i približiti ga ljudima.

Konačno, iz navedenog, ma koliko je tematika obrađena samo informativno u ovom naizgled obimnom tekstu, možemo zaključiti da ovaj stil nema konačnu definiciju. Nejasnost pojma i heterogenost izraza upućuje na to da će se nastaviti preispitivanje njihovog kreativnog puta, zbog čega se mogu pojaviti nove kategorije koje će definirati ono što se događa sada ali i u budućnosti. Kolektivi smješteni u tu kategoriju su toliko različiti među sobom, a broj njihovih sljedbenika i nasljednika toliko je velik da su se pokušaji identificiranja preciznijih granica već sretali više puta, iako nikad konačno.

Od tisuća albuma koji bi se mogli svrstati pod ovu temu, uz mnoge dileme sam ipak napravio subjektivan odabir u relativno razumnom obimu, prvenstveno oslanjajući se na vlastitu kolekciju, te vjerujem, ukoliko vas ova tema zanima, da izborom bilo kojeg albuma s ove kronološki poredane liste nećete biti razočarani.
