When I went to the exhibition by Jusetsu Miwa
, who is a living national treasure for Hagi Ware in Japan, I was very impressed by the non-color color with several expressions, forceful beauty, something like soul in the stillness. His wares have color, texture, and existence which I cannot express in words. I tried to re-create these complicated colors using pitch structure that I obtained by spectral analysis. Various timbres, controlled by the pedal, merge with the upper partials. The colors mix with live instrument and sample sounds process the piano materials and reverberation of low pitches.
