47EE1ED3-5E9C-42CC-AD3D-5A8553C556AB

友人が来て一週間が経つ。

迎えに行った空港近くの駅を含め、普段は足が伸びないような場所へ、一つ一つ訪れてみる。

彼の友人と合流し、バーやケバブ、カレーソーセージのお店に行ったり。

今回、Berlinのカフェで来週末にある夜のイベントで、彼と演奏する。

後半戦、そろそろ曲を作り始めないといけないな – というところ。

It’s been a week since my friend came to Berlin from London. We’ve visited some places new here: a Curry Wurst shop, kebab place, bars, and so on. Since his friend was also in Berlin for his business trip, we went some of those places having dinner and drink together. One of my favourite coffee shop here is having an evening event at the end of the month, and we’re playing music at the event. I’m excited in my very first performance in Berlin.

「仏教が凄く良いと思うのは花が枯れる中にも美しさを見つけるところとか」

大学卒業後、Curiosityを追って5年間世界中を旅し続けたHiromitsuくん。二年半住んだインドのダラムシャラでは東洋哲学やヨーガ、サンスクリット語の勉強をしてきました。今回旅の終わりの直前に寄ってくれたBerlinで、Hiromitsuくんの旅の中の世界 – 主に仏教について話してくれました。

Hiromitsu is a traveller, he’s been travelling all over the world to follow his curiosity for more than 5 years since his graduation from college. He also lived in Dharamshala studying yoga, Sanskrit, and eastern philosophy for 2 years and a half. In the conversation, he’s talking about what he’s seen through the travels – especially one of his irreplaceable interests: Buddhism.

Hiromitsu 2/2 (in Japanese) – Traveller

「音楽の良いところはその人の生き様が現れていて、言葉を超えてるよね」

 

後半はギターを弾きながら世界を回ったHiromitsuくんに選んでもらった3つの大切な音楽についてです。
(0:18)「演奏家がその人の経験や技術をもって自由を謳歌している」と感じたPharoah Sandersの楽曲。(8:54)自分の故郷: 三島の民謡は演奏と解説を交えて。(24:04)最後は人間だけでなく、自然も音楽を奏でてているんだと感じた海の音についてです。
Hiromitsu, the traveller, has always had the guitar with him all the way of his trip. His choice of 3 tubes are varied from a live session of Pharaoh Sanders, which he thought the notes of freedom, a folk song from his village, he sang the song with the guitar, to sound of the sea that he found not only people make music but the nature as well.
Hiromitsu’s unforgotten tunes
  1. Pharaoh Sanders / You’ve got to have freedom 
  2. Noe-bushi (a folk song of Mishina)
  3. Sound of the nature
