Soirée musicale Zen - Koto



Some pictures from Saturday "Soirée Musicale Zen" with Gahô Takahashi from Paris @ Atelier de flute (BLA) where I give my lessons. Cosy and friendly evening.











I rewrote some music scores from the normal notation to the shinobue tablature. I can also play with the normal musical notation but strangely I feel more confortable to play with the shinobue notation even it is just a tablature. I think because this notation is not so detailed so that we can play more freely and approximatively which is good for this instrument.

Next concert is on 9th December at 4 p.m.

Journal de cours #5





Cours de flûte japonaise à Paris. Un petit extrait de "Takeda no komoriuta" une berceuse de la région Kyoto. 





Lecture d'un morceau contemporain japonais avec Koto (que vous n'entendez pas ici). Il est en train d'apprendre un technique "overblowing" au shinobue.
