Waiting for Watazumi

A shakuhachi player who Samuel Beckett could relate to.

The Shakuhachi Brothers

I don't know where this originally came from, perhaps Dean Del Bene's Myoan Shakuhachi blog, where I've lifted a few great jpegs. It's been used in many places on the web.

Shakuhermaphrodite

Somehow ... the conversation on the old BBQ forum got to the subject of hermaphrodites. This PhotoShop work commemorates the weirdness of that discussion.

Mitch Miller Shakuhachi

This one always upsets Jim Thompson and probably grinds the teeth of many Hollywood studio musicians who worked around Mr. Miller. Sorry Jim. Smile

Let your Hair Down

A woodcut jpeg that I lifted from eBay.

Hi MutylinaNatalya

That is a great photo. Do you know who are playing?

How about "WHAT" are they playing. Looks like the shakuhachi player has typical shakuhachi notation but I can't tell what the fiddler has.

In the history of Sakhalin was a period when he lived north of the Russian, while in the south - the Japanese. I know exactly what that photo was taken on Sakhalin Island and on time - until 1945. That's all I know.
Photo-album called "Photo Album" Unknown family of Oodomari - 97 photos - photo history of three generations of Japanese family found in Sakhalin and published in Yekaterinburg ",

I am interested in this issue and went into the museum. Unfortunately there was nothing I could say about the shakuhachi.

Wow! That is very interesting, Natalya!!!
Thank you so much for sharing!
Yes, of course... there must be documents like this in Sakhalin! Just that picture you shared with us is treasure!

Tairaku, in the 1920 and 30s there was a wave of composers trying to incorporate Western instruments and Japanese instruments in their music. Perhaps a piece like that... although this picture might be older. Do you know how old it is, Natalya?

Well if you still have to move the time frame, the photo was taken no earlier than 1905 and no later than 1945. Looking at the quality of this picture (many factors), I think it's 40-ies. More accurate to say I can not.

Yes I know that. But it's interesting that the shakuhachi player looks like he's reading Japanese notation while we must assume the violinist is reading Western. How do they communicate?

My guess would be tozan notation and Western notation together... but this is only a guess.

Hey Kiku, Brian, and others I know and don't know yet...

Speaking of Tozan (which this probably is).... I would love to hear more from tozan players on this forum, if only to get some perspective from "the other half". Particularly interested in their honkyoku, some of which is very intriguing, from the little I have heard so far.

The creator of this forum is a Tozan player! So it is a very good opportunity. Lorka, perhaps you can ask Jean-François and other Tozan players on this forum (I've spotted you, Nigel!) could explain about it and we could get a discussion up about Tozan there. Okay

Last year in the European Shakuahchi Festival held in Prague, Czech Republic - we had Tozan very well represented with Yamamoto Shinzan, Aizawa Rozan and our own Jean-François Lagrost!

That would be fantastic. The previous forum/BBQ was great, but it almost totally avoided all things Tozan, which I always thought was a shame, as Tozan seems to have a rich, albeit more modern tradition, including one of honkyoku.

And if I'm not mistaken, Tozan was a Meian (Myoan) player before he started creating his own style and writing his own compositions.

"Fiddler"! Brian, you are a character.

Smile Maybe not to much of a character, Brian, the violinist shows a bit of a fiddler position. And who knows what kind of sound he produced.
