This is music was composed for the sculpture called “Destino” (seen above) at the Laumeier sculpture park for Eric Hall’s site and sound project. Try to imagine this object being conceived, created and by sheer manpower. No machines. This monument made me feel as if it were something men would have created in the past as an ode to their progress and freedom through structural perfection.
This was written for a group of dancers in Tokyo who were performing in the middle of a cherry blossom festival in the spring. The location of the event was set in a park under large trees and Mt. Fuji could be seen in the distance.
This is the music from a story set in Bangladesh. The boy finds himself magically transported to a more ideal Tokyo where tradition and western architecture/life meet in a more cohesive way. The music represents this by maintaining the traditional scales in the Koto, while the guitar plays a Western comp.
This is the full soundcloud release of my project named: Sleepy Tokyo, Dark Circles. It comes from watching a city filled with business men and women who look exhausted. The songs follow an ordinary night going from the office, to a bar, stumbling home, sleeping a few hours then going back to the office to repeat the same thing again. I’ve experienced it first hand, and this is what it sounds like.
