At Sol, one part of the wall is painted in magenta.
This color, discovered by Goethe, is a combination of red and violet,
which respectively are the lowest and highest colors of the visible spectrum.
Red is most heavy with long wavelengths signifying Roughness.
Violet is light with short wavelengths signifying Delicateness.
Hence, in Japan, violet is commonly used to represent the highest rank.
The words, “reason is formed by the height of culture and the height of animality” represent this ideology;
when the extremities of the vulgar and the refined exist, instead of combining both and diving it in half,
it is the intuition of going both directions simultaneously.
This is what is referred to as the Middle Way in Buddhism, meaning when exact opposites exist,
one does not take what is in the center but encloses them both.
Sol’s aim to synthesize the man-made, contemporary and western, with the natural, antique and eastern,
alludes to the meaning of the color magenta, which signifies a mixture of opposite colors.
Thus, magenta is the symbol of the Middle Way.

ミーハーですけど

TVで衝撃。
ジェロ。
知ってる?
黒人の演歌歌手。
2/20ビクターからデビューやて。

アメリカ生まれ、5年前に来日。のど自慢大会を総ナメ。スカウトの目に止まり、秋元康/宇崎竜童の曲でデビュー。おばあさんが日本人で幼少から美空ひばりを聞き、生まれてこの方の紅白録画所有。梅干し納豆お構い無し。格好B系。
ま、YouTubeで見て。

企画書作って、売れ筋調べて、シュミレーションして、とかやりようのない人材やで。
面白過ぎる。
演歌?って感じやん?
日本人がほぼ見向きもしてないところへ、アメリカの若者が殴り込みやで。日本人がB系で和製ヒップホップって・・・ってことになってしまう。

なんやろ、この痛快さ。
なんか『津軽海峡 冬景色』とかも歌ってて、そしたらちょっと本物も、と石川さゆりの映像見て、ついでに、と坂本冬美。
演歌ってええよなって打ち明けてもよさげな空気になる日は近い!
