I choreographed images evoked from the sounds of dialect words I found in Yujuku Onsen.
I called this work a "dance notation drawing" to distinguish it from a mere musical score or record. In general, a dance score requires that the described movement be reproducible. Instead, drawing does not have a role of reproduction, and as with dance, it has a strong one-time aspect. For me, drawing a dance is a way to discover and memorize the response of images.
