童仙房 [Dosembo] is a little village lost in the mountain , between Kyoto & Nara. Founded by samouraï of all around the Japan at the end of their era, when their social position and their utility became nothing, dosembo is a dying village where young people left and school has closed … I was working during this time with professor Yasushi Maehira, working on lifelong education.
Those 2 tracks are inspired by a prayer of the inhabitants, I’ve heard (whitout seeing them prayin) during one of my visit of the village. It looked like for me like a last breath prayin by old people, who one part is already dead melting with the nature around mountain, trees , river.
Special thanks to Professor Yasushi Maehira.
