Sober Inn | Matters of Time



DISCRETION IS THE BETTER PART OF OUR VALOR.

IN PRAISE OF THE NINTH:
"[...] the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation
and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes.
[...] The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized".

HARMONIC ATLAS #8
Halfmoon | The Eighth


Every given tone knows its octave
as the destination of musical progressions: the harmonious home.
These eighth degrees are, in fact, the equivalences of their first.

The meridian sunlight clearly draws an axis toward the earth,
alluding to the everlasting notes of justice we could achieve.

HARMONIC ATLAS #7
The Seventh | Halfmoon

With things shrinking to the dim horizon,
some helices continue weaving their possible future,
aware of the slightest rustle in winds.

The ocean would brim over with tears
to raid the empire of false messiahs;
Flooding into their capitals,
nulling every piece of their machinery,
and ultimately paving our stairway to humanity
—the root note of this atlas.

HARMONIC ATLAS #6 Distilled in Stars
Above the Sea of Galileo | Celestial Meridians

Tears distilled themselves
in such starry realms as conscience lies in
recollecting the calm sadness at evenfalls.
Through every heavy sea of maturation,
nations of eternity still standing on their ship,
with their thoughtful eyes turned skyward,
finally declare the triumph of true religion.

Helices of doublets gently comb itself through her womb,
Choirs of past centuries turning into a mathematical opera.
Athena offering them everything in the language harmonic,
Brilliance of truth emerges again eliminating any false messiah.

HARMONIC ATLAS #4
The Past that Weaves -Warp &Weft-


Every note on an octave embraces their overtones and undertones.
Some of them might distinctly sing out while others might not;
they play roles responding to the given tonalities.

Our octave altars have thus learned harmonics.

The hidden tones, however, will never pass away.
They have rather added discreet counterpoints for our atlas,
like bitter tears have prepared what we can dream for tomorrow.


Thank you,

HARMONIC ATLAS #3
Learned Helix
 
 
Genuine gentleness cannot easily be achieved.
With a cold rain obliterating traces, we might stray from our path.
Tremendous dissonance of violence would almost tear our harmonic atlas apart.

Motifs of good old songs nevertheless comfort every forlorn soul;
their echoes remind us how we could see things more humanly
so that we learn again how to sing on.
 
Thank you,
KAZUFUMI

Octave Altar


Neither echoing gunshots nor nuclear bombings can stop our music: the song of humanity.
Over the reigns of sadness, it is time to re-invent our future.

Wisdom of harmonics tells us the most instable note would lead a graceful resolution.
Alternative paths have potentially been suggested in things being heard of.
Reality matters; ideal as well or more.

HARMONIC ATLAS
a notation of hope


No atlas should be used for invasions through which someone aims to kill the others;
every atlas hopes to be a guide to our old friend's home.

Our world seems covered with so many tears and fires
that the music of world atlas, originally graceful, would resolve to nothing but ashes.

It is high time that all of us tried to recover and enrich our harmonic atlas
so that we could re-invent our future more hopefully.

>>><<<>>><<<>>><<< >>><<<>>><<<>>><<<
What shall my west hurt me? As west and east
In all flat maps (and I am one) are one,
So death doth touch the resurrection.
[...]
"Therefore that he may raise, the Lord throws down."
------"Hymn to God, My God, in My Sickness" by John Donne

Above White Sands, the Trinity was realized.
The world seems in sickness still, awaiting new dawn.
Below anonymous epitaphs, they have told us
the art of compassion, mightier than nuclear wepons, would save our day.

Dear NYC and America

You have often taught me what freedom means
and how numerous colors can elaborate a splendid harmonics.

I have then composed some works as hymns for your glorious ideal:
everyone has inherent dignity.
Such gracefulness of tolerance, I believe, always makes you great.

Every drop of our tears will soon turn into fire to light our torch.
The torch, namely our conscience, will never fade away.
Still fired up so brightly, awaiting new dawn.

Thank you,
KAZUFUMI

On the Works

IF tears turn into fire, there should be a kind of grammar;
when stars sing to the earth, presumably there is an unknown composer.


It seems natural, therefore,
that every single artisan has sought after the art of translating
from a drop of Nature
not only into the terms of science, but into the matters of elegance.
The musical scores responding to the hints Athena dropped
would require a harmonics between them.


A few preeminent people have actually achieved
several interpretations worth remembering for the music.
Some of them have even added splendid cadenzas
that awake us to the sense of individuality.


Going quietly through the iconostasis filled with the portraits
on which their spirits are symbolically reflected,
all of us could realize a passage sung from the Immortal Forest.


I will walk along this narrow path;
the sun brightly shines through Her numerous leaves rustling in a wind.


What I show you here is a tread of mine.
I deeply appreciate for your attention.

KAZUFUMI
