Antropología y Rock #01: FERDINAND DE SAUSSURE + ACE OF BASE

.
Hoy abrimos una nueva sección en Antropocacos en la que procuraremos reunir la música popular con los conceptos más importantes de las Ciencias Sociales. La premisa es que una canción puede reflejar alguna teoría, concepto o simplemente nos haga recordar a algún autor en particular.

En el primer caso encontramos una canción llamada "The Sign" de la banda Ace of Base, lo que automáticamente nos remite a la teoría lingüística, y sobre todo a Ferdinand de Saussure.



Ace of Base es una de las bandas suecas más conocidas fuera de su país, junto con ABBA y Roxette. Su epoca de mayor éxito fue el principio de la década de 1990, y hoy siguen tocando de vez en cuando y sacando nuevos discos. Sus temas más conocidos fueron The Sign, All That She Wants, Happy Nation y Don't Turn Around. Su primer disco, Happy Nation, tiene el record Guinness de ventas como el primer disco mejor vendido.
En la letra de su tema "The Sign" observamos claramente la influencia de la teoría lingüística en relación con el análisis de la interacción social y el signo utilizado como base de la comunicación y el mutuo entendimiento:
Shock!
I got a new life
You would hardly recognize me
Im so glad
How can a person like me care for you
Why do I bother
When youre not the one for me
Is enough enough
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong
Under the pale moon
For so many years Ive wondered
Who you are
How can a person like you bring me joy
Under the pale moon
Where I see a lot of stars
Is enough enough
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
Life is demanding without understanding
I saw the sign and it opened up my eyes
I saw the sign
No ones gonna drag you up
To get into the light where you belong
But where do you belong
I saw the sign
Ferdinand de Saussure fue uno de los fundadores de la lingüística moderna. Su libro más importante es una colección de sus clases publicadas por sus discípulos, titulada "Curso de Lingüística General". En la base de su teoría encontramos el concepto de signo lingüístico, al que define como una entidad psíquica de dos caras, siendo una de ellas un concepto (significado) y la segunda una imagen acústica (significante), cuya relación es arbitraria y variable dentro del sistema total de la lengua. No podemos afirmar que le hubiera gustado el pop sueco, pero quizás si.

Debo protestar fervientemente por la inclusión de tan aciaga banda en la gloriosa categoría de "Rock". Como efecto secundario de la lectura de este post esa perniciosa melodía ululante se metió en mi cabeza, formando un todo indisoluble con mi conceptualización de Saussure, gracias! :P

To be a adroit charitable being is to procure a make of openness to the world, an skill to group undeterminable things beyond your own pilot, that can govern you to be shattered in unequivocally exceptional circumstances as which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably weighty relating to the get of the ethical life: that it is based on a corporation in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a spy than like a sparkler, something kind of feeble, but whose very special handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.

To be a upright benign being is to procure a make of openness to the far-out, an cleverness to group uncertain things beyond your own pilot, that can front you to be shattered in very exceptionally circumstances pro which you were not to blame.
