Hiroki Okano – Emergence From Awai

207

Through this project with AKIRA∞IKEDA, Hiroki Okano has strived to craft unconventional musical works by rendering the one-year movement of the entire solar system to a grand musical score. This entire composition features an arrangement of sounds every few seconds. Each and every sound perfectly coincides with this year’s astronomical events, such as the twenty-four seasonal divisions and the moon phases, as well as planetary alignments.

Opening with a sound to ring in the Vernal Equinox, the music goes on, past the Autumnal Equinox halfway through its course, to complete a full-circle journey from the year 2021 to 2022. As one single breath is likened to a human life, this one piece of music represents the one-year cycle of the vastness of time and space.

“Since the beginning of the year 2020, we have been facing unprecedented challenges, such as natural disasters, the Covid-19 pandemic, and political and economical tensions,” says Hiroki Okano. “It is certain that these moments signify a major turning point globally. We are pleased to release the 2021 version, envisioning our new future in which humankind will work in cooperation on this planet, in our universe”.
