Music&Images by Hiromi Ishii 2010. Historically, the shakuhachi has been regarded as a religious tool and was allowed to play only by Buddhist mendicant priests to seek their enlightenment. As for visual material the pictures of Shinjuku rail-station (one of the most crowded place in Tokyo) and another picture of a mendicant priest who appears there everyday were used. The processed images in the first half are further processed in different ('less resonance') ways in the second half.
Both music and images start from the same material of Shinjuku landscape & soundscape, and are transformed to structure two parts; the full resonant real (or material) world in the first part, and quiet and silent spiritual (abstract) world of the mendicant priest.
