Shamisen, Shika Kikai


This piece is the result of a meeting in which I had the pleasure
of sharing the same love for Beauty with a wonderful musician
like Hirokazu Sugiura. So, still and again, I assimilate myself to my subjectivity,
assimilating myself to it in an attempt to “see” through a more speculative method of thought.
In a constant motion toward or away from potential,
the tentative, the ephemeral…
first meeting, last meeting.


Dedicated to Hirokazu Sugiura • Tokyo, April 1998
