その一つがダゲレオタイプ。 できれば水銀法で。

どちらが簡単かというと、どちらも比べられないくらい難しい。 ダゲレオタイプに至っては、技術的なことはもとより、設備も必要なので別の難しさがあります。

コントラプンクトゥスはダゲレオタイプよりさらに時代をさかのぼった1740年代のバッハの曲。    12度の転回対位法による2重フーガ、という訳のわからない説明がついていますが、とにかく美しいのです。


湿板と全然関係ないネタですが。 (そういえば、おととしの12月は、湿板を経験しなければ絶対に死ねない。。。と思っていました。)

『身体的経験の法則』 1755年より


There are many things I want to achieve in my life.
Recently I especially focus these 2 things.

One is daguerreotype, preferably with mercury method.
And the other is to play the contrapunctus 9 of The Art of Fugue.

To the question which is easier, both are very difficult and cannot compare as a apples-to-apples.

As for a daguerreotype, difficulty relies on the environment and equipment, not just the skill.

The contrapunctus was composed by J.S. Bach back in 1740s, much earlier that the daguerreotype was introduced into the word.
It’s explained with complicated word as “Double fugue, with two subjects occurring dependently, and in invertible counterpoint at the 12th
Anyway it’s so beautiful.

I would like to start both of them as soon as possible, as it’s going to be a long journey.

I know the article is not related to the wet plate.. (I remember that in the end of 2013 I was seriously thinking that I could never die unless I experience the wet plate.)
