Japan Vignette 1

Recently, my attention has been focused on my two upcoming recitals next month, so I have not been very good about posting updates here!

That said, I seem to have come to the eye of the storm, and I’m also getting some media from various recent performances, and I’m hoping to post them here over the coming weeks.

Here’s a short piece for video and stereo audio, formatted for portable devices:

Japan Vignette 1: fushimi inari jinja from Simon Hutchinson on Vimeo.

This piece is the first in a series of short video pieces I’m writing constructed from images and video that I took during my time in Japan. My goal in these pieces, rather than trying to create something that is “Japanese,” is to create a kind of artistic scrapbook that explores my experiences on my travels.

Fushimi Inari Jinja (or Fushimi Inari-Taisha) is a mountain temple/shrine located in Kyoto, famous for its tunnel-like series of orange gates.

Art, to be fully appreciated, must be true to contemporaneous life. It is not that we should ignore the claims of posterity, but that we should seek to enjoy the present more. It is not that we should disregard the creations of the past, but that we should try to assimilate them into our consciousness.
