SUBWAY for voice and koto
(composition, voice, koto & photographs by Natascha Nikeprelevic)
During her Japan concert-tour Natascha spent a month in Kyoto. Besides visiting shrines and temples she learned to play the japanese koto harp.
For her the sound of koto is a symbol of solitude, harsh beauty, concentrative force … . Natascha saw these aspects and the typical japanese „being within himself“ mirrored in the faces
of passengers in subways around Kyoto.
Throughout her daily trips this visual music was born.
