The words are inspired by Hiratsuka Raicho which published Japan’s first all-women literary magazine, Seitō (Bluestocking) in 1911. It opened with the words “In the beginning, woman was the sun…” Her words could be referring back to the Japanese foundation myth of Amaterasu, the goddess of the sun who emerged out of a cave and brought sunlight back to the universe.
The track is a collaboration between AGF and Tujiko Noriko for the album: A Deep Mysterious Tone, a work about Japanese poetry, language, identity and feminism. The album CD contains a deeper examination on these subjects.
The video was made by Sue-C, a long time visual collaborator of AGF, both release a CD/DVD project called 'Mini Movies' in 2005 and toured Europe. vimeo.com/116520713
