OJP002 : Tetsuroh Konishi / Nanso ( feat.Okuni )

OJP002 : Tetsuroh Konishi / Nanso ( feat.Okuni )

Second release on the new Japanese series is Nanso.
Nanso (軟蘇の法) means 'formally / literally' in Japanese.
Japanese trumpet player Tetsuroh Konishi recorded this 38m track for OKUNI. 

Okuni's Haruka Kobayashi is a master of Nanso, a therapy based on renowned Zen master Hakuin who lived 200 years ago. 
Eastern medicine gives great importance to the idea of discharging all the bad things through the bottom of the foot.
In an actual exercise, one imagines that a luminous ball falls down to his head from the universe and that Nanso gradually melt down due to his body heat. 
All the bad things are embraced with the light of Nanso, purified, and discharged through the bottom of the foot at the end.
That's all for the way of doing it, but it is surprisingly effective.
Why would you ask? Simply because this is how the nature works.
It seems that the ancient Chinese people also used this method to rebalance the body energy.

As Haruka Kobayashi quotes:
"The sound of this album should resonate with your body along with the image of the light.
It is a monotonous repeat of the sound, but at the end of the song you will find yourself breathe deeply and easily.
The bad vibes in your body will be gone and you will feel re-energized.
I would recommend that you enjoy this more as resonance rather than music."
