NEW VIDEO: “FALLING SNOW”, THE ETHEREAL SOUNDSCAPES OF FLUTE NINJA (笛忍者) + 21 R.A. ARTWORKS

***

The relaxing and mysterious music created by Flute Ninja (笛忍者) – composer, artist and musician – meets my “Lacer/Actions” works in a videoclip titled “Falling Snow”. The clip presents an original Flute Ninja (笛忍者) composition accompanied by an image series from my collection of pics from torn and decomposed publicity posters and urban tokens. The 21 works have white and green as prevailing colors, suggesting a sort of snow scenes from a winter garden… All the images come from a unique ripped poster that I saw some months ago along a street in Milan (Italy).  

I’m very glad about this collaboration borned and created in distance thanks to the web: Flute Ninja (笛忍者) lives in Alabama (USA), he is composer, poet, shakuahachi player, martial artist (he enjoys drawing and painting nature and landscapes; his inspiration came from Bob Ross). Through  his YouTube channel NinjutsuLives, he spreads his passion for Japanese music and instruments as shakuahachi.

In “Falling Snow” composition (lenght: 3 minutes and 59 seconds). Flute Ninja (笛忍者) plays shinobue, a transverse Japanese bamboo flute which creates ethereal soundscapes. So welcome to this sensorial experience for ears, eyes, heart and mind… An invitation to stop for 4 minutes and go slowly…

IT’S A VERY INDUSTRIAL PICTURE… SNOW, CLOUDS AND PEOPLE ALL SEEM TO DRIFT IN THE SAME DIRECTION

DREAMS & LACER/ACTIONS”: THERAPEUTIC HAIGA # 2 BY ~MEREDITH AND ROBERTO ALBORGHETTI

Faded faces stroll

     the walls of layered living.

    Yesterday softens.

*

I saw granite snow

     and touched the oneness.

     Ancient stories freeze.

*

Umbrella walkers

     dot the misty,morning streets.

     Tissue clouds bring snow.

This is the second composition created by fellow blogger, Meredith (healingminds@WordPress.com) for a four composition series titled “Dreams & Lacer/actions: Therapeutical Haiga”. Meredith – who lives in Lafayette, Indiana (USA) – shared a preview of my most recent images taken from torn posters and cities walls during my trips in the Netherlands and Italy. And, she began to create verses…

The second “Lacer/actions” art piece which inspired Meredith’s verses comes from a display I saw on a square at Como Lake (Italy). It is natural, and not manipulated or enhanced image.

Meredith wrote this note about the image: “This picture looked both very industrial and like a barren canyon in winter.  Both places may seem bleak but I see life.  Snow, clouds, and people all seem to drift in the same direction, whether moved by snow or racing, tissue clouds. I could not help but make a copy of this photo to run my fingers across as I listened to the whispered tales of mottled surfaces.” 

I thank Meredith for this collaboration which is also a particular experimentation based on colors, images, words, thoughts, emotions and sensorial perception.

SNOW LANDSCAPE? NO, IT’S JUST ONE OF MY “LACER/ACTIONS”…

  

 

Black and White. Two colors. One scene. The image recalls me a snow-covered volcanic land. Or some traces of snow. Maybe snow on the clods? Probably. I may say for sure that it’s an (absolutely random) image I’ve taken (as the others 35.000) during my wandering research about what I like to call “The Torn (publi)City”… I catched it in Lecco, on Como Lake. Now it’s a canvas… I like, in this image, the way in which black and white colors are mixed. Some parts seem in relief, as a 3D picture. But it’s only an illusion, as the sensation to be in front of a snow-covered volcanic landscape seen from a plane… It’s only an abstract composition. It’s just one of my “Lacer/actions”
