Susumu Yokota: Saku

This is a song I’d not listened to before. Thought it would make for interesting writing.
I think that, whilst I captured a sense of the song I ended up being more cautious in my writing than I should have.

Susumu Yokota’s “Saku” is from Sakura.

I hope you enjoy.

Warm, gentle and maybe even a little soft. Slowly sounds fade in and a slight run of keys move up whilst the opening continues its entry to prominence. More keys look for space and slightly draw out on their single presses.

Something else begins to fade in, looking to have a meeting become a bigger gathering. It slides down and up and back and forth. Something flashing also finds its way in and stays more in the background, and slowly all the sounds coalesce into something whole whilst others appear here and there.

Peaceful and almost inward-looking and for a moment there is a sense of stillness. All is there and motionless, but it is only a brief moment and soon sounds start moving away. It all starts to strip down and it seems that there is a nakedness. The motion is bare and it is vulnerable and it stands there, unwilling to hesitate and be anything other than itself.

Here is a single moment once more frozen. It stays and there seems a slight watching in the distance, but it is faint and it is not the moment for anything other than that opening warm, gentle and maybe even a little soft sound. It stays and lingers as it fades away at the song’s end.
