The below is the poem i spoke in Japanese in one song.

Though it is still the draft, i just kept as note. It was like my personal soliloquies inspired by one Italian children song i learnt at one lunch break.

Let's see where we are going ahead. Soon more info will be confirmed!


MIENAI 

poem(draft) by Hiroko Komiya



Today is coming to an end and disappearing into the white wave.

With reflection to the blue sky, it becomes an invisible shape.


The words you said shimmer in the light and shadow.

They become a transparent shape and melt in the deep sea.


Today is coming to an end and falling into the white wave.

Become an intangible light like a shapeless memory.


Everything disappears

Everything disappears

Everything disappears


Fading away

Fading away

Fading away


Today is wandering like a shadow in the white waves.

I'm groping for an afterglow in a distant memory.

Looking back, the time and scenery at that time


Everything disappears

Everything disappears

Everything disappears


Fading away

Fading away

Fading away

" Rendezvous Cycles " by Chris H Lynn and Hiroko Komiya
Hiroko has started sound collaboration with US based artist Chris H Lynn / Framing sounds this spring 2021.
Chris is a moving image maker, sound artist, educator and curator. His digital images and Super 8 films explore the subtle rhythms of movement, light, and sound in urban and rural landscapes.
In this track, you can listen the sound of life magic of Brood X Cicada field recording by Chris with instrumental drones by Hiroko's Hungarian Citera. This periodical cicadas emerge only every 17years. Just during several weeks of life on the earth, they are born, make meeting, then finish their life and go back to the earth till next new birth.
Life and death and meeting. This beautiful rendezvous cycles are expressing the eternal transformation of life.

Soon more new tracks are coming!

Info on Chris H Lynn/ Framing sounds; here

I am appreciating for this new collaboration.


" Rendezvous Cycles " by Chris H Lynn and Hiroko Komiya.
"ランデブーサイクル”(循環する出逢い)
Listen >

今年2021年の春より、Chris H. Lynn/ Framing SoundsとHiroko Komiyaのサウンドコラボレーションがはじまりました。
Chrisは映像クリエーター、音響作家でアメリカ東海岸拠点のアーテイストです。デジタル撮影およびスーパー8フィルムで撮影された彼の映像は、都市や農村における風景を映し出し、動きと光と音の微妙なリズムが美しいです。

この曲は、ChrisのBrood X Cicadaと呼ばれる周期蝉のフィールドレコーディングに、Hirokoのハンガリアンチテラの弦楽器ドローンを重ね合わせてできた曲です。この周期ゼミは17年ごとにしか出現しません。そして、地上でのわずか数週間の生命の間に、出逢いがあり、そして命を終えて、次の17年後まで大地に戻るのです。生と死と出会い。循環するめぐり逢いは永遠に変容していく生命の形のようにも思えます。

この新しいコラボレーション、これからも新曲を発表していく予定です。聴いていただけると嬉しいです。
