ATOWA CONCERT

We held ATOWA concert last Saturday night.
I really appreciate to the people who came to our concert and the people who helped us.

“ATOWA” means the universe and the earth.
It was duo concert that I performed with my friends, Saco.

ATOWA

 

“Music has no borders.”

I was able to acknowledge this again at the concert.

 

Saco played the piano and sang expressing the ground and I played the piano, crystal bowl and sang expressing the sounds from the universe.

Nahoko’s dancing absolutely connected our sounds.

 

ATOWA2

 

Also we improvised many times and I played crystal bowls around 20 minutes for healing time.
I think everybody enjoyed our concert.

After the concert, everyone was smiling were than before the concert.

I think that everyone felt united from the music.

 

I hope to come back to New York and play again!

Why I play the crystal bowl &piano at the same time

I play crystal bowls and piano together.

The reason why I wanted to play together is  I wanted many people to know crystal bowls’ sounds which are pure and beautiful.

The first time I listened to the crystal bowl,  I was surprised that the sound came inside of my body as if I had drunk something.

After that moment, I felt the sound expand throughout my body.

The crystal bowls emit two big kind of energy which are relaxation and purification.

If you listen to this sound, your body and mind become lighter and you want to do new things.

You feel yourself become a positive person.

 

Piano is my life.

If I tell the history of my life, piano is indispensable for me.

Unfortunately, my hands are so small,so I thought I couldn’t be a pianist.

I longed for piano, but even though I had caught it, I still could’t reach it.

The situation was changed by the crystal bowl.

Crystal bowls are good even though they only play one sounds.

However , I know music is well loved and if people play music, their feelings are changed by it.

So if I play crystal bowls, I always play a melody instead of only sounds.

It was challenging for me, because the crystal bowl’s and piano’s sound quality are much different even though both are percussion.

The amazing things happended.

Imagine a couple meeting for the first time,they are very nervous to know each other,  but little by little they become accustomed to each other and they grow closer.

Now, think about piano and crystal bowls.                                                                                     

They are definitely not the same sound quality,but if I play them together, they want to be together and finally they make good harmony.

 

Our body has a frequency and all things in the world have their own frequency.

If we imagine the waves in the sea, there are many kinds of waves.

When two waves meet from different directions, they combine and create a new frequency.

This is the same for music. If we listen to music and the sounds come close to our bodies, the frequencies from the music and ourselves meet and combine in the same way as waves in the sea.

 

“I felt as if I was in heaven.”                                                                                                          Many people who attended in my concert said comments like this.

I’ll give you the ultimate healing and relaxation space at my concert.

I’ll give my all to my music when I play.

Please come and enjoy it!

The worst cold in New York City

I t is snow in New York area today.
I remenber the coldest weekend in New York city in last month.

I’m going to tell about it.

 

The wind chill temperature was minus 16 degrees.

The New York Mayor said to please stay home on TV.

 

I couldn’t feel the temperature exactly because my room was warm.

I was confused about if it was true or not.

I tried going outside because I wanted to know the truth.

 

I regretted this attempt as soon as I went out from my apartment entrance.

I stopped walking and came back inside immediately.

 

I remembered to reserve a hair appointment that day, so I pulled myself together, and went outside again.

 

I was a little nervous because it was my first time going to the hair salon.
It is easy for me to lose my way if I go to a new place.
The person who cut my hair was so nice, so I enjoyed talking with her.

She said, “ I want to hang a towel outside. I will make the towel wet first, then go outside with it, steer it quickly and squeeze it.

Maybe I will be able to make a standing tower like a sword.

 

I posted this story on Facebook, some of my friends commented to me that I should try it!

Then I tried it.
Look at this picture!

And then,

I succeeded in making it!

It was so amazing, wasn’t it?

Thank you for coming to my Crystal Bow & Piano Concert in San Francisco Bay

I just came back from San Francisco three days ago.

 

It was beautifully sunny and warm there, so we didn’t need overcoats. Some people even wore T –shirts!

 

It was rainy when I arrived at JFK airport in New York, so I was at a loss at getting used to the weather in New York City again.

 

San Francisco is a special place for my family because we lived there from 1993 to 1999.

The day after I arrived in SF, I went to Downtown San Francisco to meet with my friends.

I’ve been back to visit S.F.Bay many times after going back Japan, but I hadn’t been downtown, so I was excited to see everything in the city.

Then, my performance was held the following day.

 

It was an intimate performance, held at my friend Sachiko’s house.
I was very happy to have my concert there because she organized it so well and made a comfortable space for the audience and me.
I really enjoyed playing.

 

My friend’s house was in a secluded neighborhood, surrounded by trees, so I felt like I was playing in the forest.

The house was built nicely on the hill and I was surprised to find out that the house was built by her husband!

 

We placed a piano in front of a tall window, so I was able to feel the outside during my performance.

 

IMG_4662

 

My crystal bowl makes nice sounds every time I play it.
There was enough time for me to have a rehearsal, and the concert started.

 

During the performance, there was a stronger reverberation of sounds than during the rehearsal.

 

The sounds lasted longer, as if they would never end.

 

IMG_4766

 

I thought the sounds reverberated through all of us- the audience, Sachiko and her family’s hearts and the environment surrounding us.

 

We made the sounds together, so it became more beautiful.

 

I always feel the sounds are different each time I play, because I can feel people’s warm-hearts come through to me.

 

 

I can’t wait to play again and again, because every time I play the crystal bowl, I feel like a pipe, connecting the earth to space, and people all over the world to peace.

Welcoming Spring with Live music ~The Crystal Bowl & Piano Concert in New Jersey~

I gave a Crystal bowl & Piano recital last Saturday.

It was a beautiful time for everybody、 just like taking a nap with musical blankets.

 

Of course I was able to have a rich musical experience, again.

 

 

I composed new two songs for the concert, which was held at my friend’s house in New Jersey.

 

One song was for my friend and hostess of the concert, Yoshiko, who lives in the house with her family.

When I saw the pictures of her house a few days before the concert, I was so surprised that there was such a nice and wonderful room and a melody sprung to mind.

 

I was excited to think about how she would feel when she listened to it.

 

On the way to her house, I looked outside from the car after getting off the freeway, as the scene gradually changed from an urban landscape to a rural one.

 

After going up a sharp hill, I could see a huge house, like a mountain lodge!

That was my friend’s house.

There is a piano inside this room.

The big grand piano was placed in this large open space by the windows.
My friend’s husband presented it to her last X’mas.
How nice!!

 

My friend is a professional ear massage instructor, so she demonstrated an ear massage in the basement while I prepared for the concert.

I started to set my crystal bowls beside the piano while hearing their laughter coming from the basement.

 

好子邸4

 

 

I just tried to play one key on the piano gently, and I felt the sound move carefully around the room, little by little.

 

 

 

 

Here I am, playing my crystal bowls.

Then I started my performance.

The audience was very relaxed.

They listened and felt comforted by the sounds.

The water bottles were placed in front of the crystal bowls, which, when played, help to purify the water.

 

I was happy to play in the sunlight, moving from one side to the other outside.

 

It was the first time I felt the outside during my performance, even though I was playing inside.

 

I played freely; I played songs I had written before the concert, but I also improvised. I really enjoyed it.

The audience looked very relaxed.

 

 

After the concert, we enjoyed the refreshments.

Yoshiko cooked over 10 meals!
