Many thanks to good friend and neighbor, J, who brought today’s beautiful thing to my attention.
Today’s thing is, well, weird. These are the Instagram posts by Hiroki-san 79, who listens to the sounds animals make and puts them to music. Somehow, it just works, and it makes me feel oddly happy that someone is listening – really listening – to the non-speaking creatures in our lives. He certainly seems to know some very vocal animals.
Hiroki-san doesn’t limit himself to compositions from the animal kingdom. His works also refer to all of the rest of nature; wind, water, landscapes, and the like. In fact, some of his thoroughly-original compositions are quite lovely.
