Project Main Details

Japanese Poem 
ZD2547928
This audio project is for a short video piece I made while we stayed in Japan for a period of 2 months. I am looking to pair a Japanese poem with the video footage that I filmed while in Kyoto, Tokyo, and Takayama. I would like the poem reading to be done in a whisper voice in the style of this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdKi41vIp4U&t=326s - this style is called ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) which creates a calming effect on the listener.

生まれたとき
ぼくに名前はなかった
水の一分子のように
だがすぐに母音が口移しされ
子音が耳をくすぐり
ぼくは呼ばれ
世界から引き離された

大気を震わせ
粘土板に刻まれ
竹に彫りつけられ
砂に記され
言葉は玉葱の皮
むいてもむいても
世界は見つからない

言葉をなくして
そよぐ木々になりたかった
十万年前の雲になりたかった
鯨の歌になりたかった
今ぼくは無名に帰る
目と耳と口を泥にふさがれ
指をもう星に預けて

When I was born
I was nameless
like a water molecule
But right away I was fed vowels mouth-to-mouth
consonants tickled my ears
I was called and
pulled away from the cosmos

Oscillating the atmosphere
carved onto clay tablets
inscribed on bamboo
recorded on sand
words are onion skins
If I keep on peeling
I will not find the cosmos

I would have loved to lose words
to be a tree singing in the wind
I would have loved to be a cloud from a hundred thousand years ago
I would have loved to be a whale’s song
Now I go back to being nameless
with dirt over my eyes, my ears and my mouth
with stars leading me by the fingers
