Was soll man über Frank Zappa schreiben, was nicht schon irgendwo geschrieben oder gesagt worden ist? Es gibt unzählige gute Websites über Frank Zappa, daher hier nur eine kleine Zusammenfassung:

Kurze Übersicht

Frank Zappa wurde am 21. Dezember 1940 in Baltimore geboren und starb am 04. Dezember 1993 in Kalifornien an den Folgen einer Krebserkrankung. Schon in seiner Schulzeit begeisterte er sich für Musiktheorie und lernte neben Gitarre auch Klavier und Schlagzeug zu spielen. Nach der Schule und einem abgebrochenen Musikstudium spielte Frank Zappa in verschiedenen Bands, schrieb Film- und Orchestermusik und arbeite, bald in seinem eigenen Studio, als Studiomusiker, Tontechniker und Produzent. 1964 wurde Zappa Mitglied der Gruppe The Soul Giants, welche sich später in The Mothers of Invention unbenannte. Mit Zappa als treibende Kraft, aber mehreren Besetzungswechseln (siehe Rezensionen), veröffentlichte die Band von 1966 bis 1975 mehrere Studio- und Livealben, fast ausschließlich Zappa-Kompositionen. Danach veröffentlichte Zappa nur noch unter seinem eigenen Namen, spielte aber mit verschiedenen Zappa-Bands Studioalben ein und trat bis 1988 auch live auf. In seinen letzten Jahren widmete sich Zappa wieder vermehrt der Orchestermusik und seinen Arbeiten mit dem Synclavier. Er hinterließ nach seinem Tod eine große Anzahl unveröffentlichten Materials.

Im Laufe seines Lebens wurde Zappa zu einer Kultfigur; in seinen oft satirischen Texten war er kompromisslos - prangerte Rassismus an oder sang provozierend über sexuelle Tabus. Über seine Musik hinaus engagierte sich Zappa in späteren Jahren politisch, forderte seiner Hörer auf zur Wahl zu gehen und setzte sich für Meinungsfreiheit und gegen die Zensur von anstößigen Musiktexten ein. Seine Aufstellung zur Wahl des US-Präsidents gab er aufgrund seiner Krebserkrankung auf.

Zappas Musik

Über die Musik Zappas könnte man ewig schreiben, er hat es auf unseren Seiten zum eigenen Stilmerkmal Zappaeskes geschafft, welches solche Musik beschreibt, die im Geiste und Klang derjenigen von Frank Zappa entspricht. Zappas Musik selbst ist schwer zu fassen. Der Hauptteil seines Schaffens ist schon im Rockbereich anzusiedeln, doch veröffentlichte er auch Jazzalben und klassische Musik. Dabei legte er einen ungeheuren Arbeitseifer an den Tag: So veränderte nachträglich die Aufnahmen seiner Mitmusiker, schnippelte Soli zusammen, verteilte dadaistische Gesprächsfetzen über die Stücke, ließ es Klingen und Plingen. Als collagenhaftes Arrangement wird dies gelegentlich bezeichnet. Metrische Verschiebungen, Polyrhythmik, gegenläufige Melodien - Zappa experimentierte gerne und viel. Angeblich gibt es keine Taktart, die Zappa nicht einmal irgendwo verwurstet hat. Interessant in diesem Zusammenhang auch die Anekdote, dass Zappa sich immer wieder darüber beschwerte, dass menschliche Musiker seine Kompositionen nicht derart spielen konnten, wie er es sich vorstellte; siehe in diesem Zusammenhang auch Udos Erläuterungen in Civilization Phaze III.
