after fashion I'm back to music and dance
onwedneyday I attended `Yes But No´ by Koi Klub – a music and party event here in Berlin
every time I go to ths event, I met a lot of fascinating people and get to know great musicians: this time it was Masayoshi Fujita – he's playing the vibraphone – a farytale-like instrument – presenting his own compositions from a series named: "stories"
and there are stories: every piece has its own title and its own tale – little stories, so detailed you can almost see them while listening Masayoshi-kuns explaination and to the music itself. often they tell about forests, trees, water, animals, myths…
But my favourite stories are about humans: "cloud" and "snowstorm"
The first one is about a cloud, being part of a dark cloudy sky above a church. In this church a woman is kneeling, holding a child in her arms, she's crying while the dimmed light of the cloudy sky is falling through windows – it's played while using bows (for a violin and a cello) – it's a silent and the same time embracing gentle and sad piece
The second one – "snowstorm" – is about a man, running alone through a snowstorm, this man is propably going to fight in a war, the storm is strong and suddenly he starts to here voices talking to him from within the wind – the music is loud and silent, strong, powerful, fighting with itself, a highly dramatic but abrupt ending – is he dead? why is there this sudden silence? what were those voices telling him? could he actually understand? – I couldn't stop thinking about this story and it's music since then

The dancing part:
An Israelian friend of mine shared this on fb (she used to be part of this troup – if I remember right) – sensualism, sexyness, strength
You know what I really would love to do?
Bring together all those wonderful artistic people I met over the last year: musicians, composers, dancers, graphic artists, photographers – write a story for them and create something which shows the strength, the beauty, the creativity of every single one of them gathered in a piece of art shown on a stage
