Notate with Nerve
Sound enters the body through the ears and echoes throughout it.
The artist felt that by comparing the music echoing through the body to blood, and expressing the
“blood as music” of 11 composers in graphical notation, then the result would be a more physical and visual mode of expression. The work is comprised of 12 pieces.
Umi-e Ki Yori (From Tree to Sea)
It represents traces of expression of the major cycle of nature using my entire body. Places where “moras” represented by hiragana letters emerged accidentally from the overlapping lines have been collected.
Quoting poems that speak of the grandeur of nature, a book of poetry was composed combining my own poems of “blue” with “moras.”
A solo exhibit was held in my home town.
