Sweet osmanthus


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Sweet osmanthus is a fragrant orange-colored olive.
It is patronized as a garden tree in the residential area in Japan.
However, it is not planted so much in a recent residential area.
It is planted trees in the garden of the residential area with the
history.

The sweet osmanthus flowers all together on the day with the early fall.
It is a flower of a small orange color.
The smell is slowly hang in the air in the residential area.

This smell is very delicacy.
There is no colorfulness.
However, there is sweetness that infiltrates the mind.

It is not a strong smell.
It is very weak, and it is gentle.

I am invited to the smell of the flower, and I search for the point of the smell.
I adheres back and walk after the smell.
However, it doesn't smell before one is aware.
It disappears somewhere.
Faint impatience.
And, a transient dream.

The smell as faint as heat haze.
Unrestrained, fairylike smell.
Smell away when approaching.

Memories when it is infant.
I call and awake the memory.
It is possible to revives a little more.
However,
I doesn't reach it.
I am not possible to revives it.
I loses the memory.
Sweet memory.

I like the transience of the smell.
The smell is not kept even on the tenth.
It fade away from the town at once.
And, my sweet memory goes away, too.
I cannot encounter a sweet smell again until next year.

Chord progression is the same as "Autumn Leaves".
The photograph is a sweet osmanthus.

Good Work!
Tadashi, I've heard several of your compositions and I am always amazed. Sorry it has taken me so long finally to get around to commenting on your amazing command of the guitar and fascinating compositions. I'm usually not a big fan of guitar delay, but your use of it in this piece is well done. It doesn't strike me as over the top but rather compliments the integrity of the work as a whole. Thanks for sharing your incredible talent and especially the interesting tidbits of Japanese culture. Very informative!

Entrancing
Light and intriguing, languid and inviting, cool and warm, agile and
playful. I very much enjoy the drum / guitar interplay at about 2/3 in and
the drums in general in this section of the song.

I suppose...
...that the obvious touchstone for this tune in Western culture would be
Marcel Proust's 'Remembrance Of Things Past'. A man has a taste of a
madeleine (cookie) with tea, and is launched into a revery of memory
and reflection... Everything here serves the song, Tadashi. Your
description of the intent of the song could function as a poem or an
essay on its own. The evocation of this autumnal flower with the
fragrance so elusive that it works subtle magic on the mind and
prompts memory without intruding on the normal thinking
consciousness is brought out by the music itself, with its very subtle
cascading notes, heightened and harmonized to perfect effect by the
skilled use of the delay. The picture is also well suited to the total
effect, the takonoma piece, if you will, which sums up the walk in the
garden that has led to this moment, and the tea of memory about to be
enjoyed. If you will forgive my saying so, Tadashi, your music has
always been skilled, but my sense is that now it is becoming deep...

With deepest respect...

Ed

Mr.Ed Hannifin.
Do you also have the memory of the smell?
Does the smell stick to the fold of the brain, too?
Is the smell studied like the language and the sight, etc.

I identify the smell of the sweet osmanthus every year.
I know certainly.
The sweet osmanthus tree grows thick in my brain.
Deep gratitude in you.

Beautiful, Crystalline Sound
With a Pat Metheny touch. Creativity is huge here. I would like to hear some segment of this without the heavy delay effect, for contrast, but that's just me.

Landscape
A landscape of a dream,
the kind of dream I don't want to wake up from.

Unexpected, unusual, yet not unpleasant.

Highly appreciated music!

Thank you for this one Tadashi!

Now let me dream it one more time...

Thank you Tadashi.
Well this year the autumn came very late.
We had an unusually warm September and October.
So it is middle of autumn here.

But today - suddenly - came some very early SNOW instead,
so it may be a shift coming ..

Great guitar
Scents are so good at bringing up strong memories. I liked reading your words. Your guitar playing is always so enjoyable. The delay on the guitar sounds like memory being evoked from the scent of osmanthus.

Beautiful
This track is just as beautiful (if not more) as the plant itself.

And although that comparison is quite the cliché, let me assure you that
your composition is not. In fact, most of your composition are very
original and always have that 'Tadashi-touch' which we've all come to
admire. This is no different.

Beautiful guitarplaying and I really enjoyed the electronic drums in
this.


A lovely piece of work!

Wonderful atmosphere
Once again you give us some amazing music! Oh, how I wish I could play guitar like you! Very tasty playing--in the outer sections (first and last) you say more by saying less, and it transports me to a different world.

I really (REALLY) like the middle section (up-tempo)--it's got great energy, and sounds like fun. I am not quite sure how it fits in to the piece as a whole, though... it is so different. In a sense it's good that it's there because it provides a nice contrast to the outer sections, but I'm just not sure it's necessary?

Or maybe the middle section could be longer? Oh! I must go now! I am being attacked by my baby, who does not like his daddy spending time on the computer...

Great work, Tadashi!

Beautiful and mesmerizing
You really manage to weave your inspiring thoughts into a lush and transcending musical experience. Simplistic, even detached but soothing, warm and evocative. I really liked your description too, your experience comes across quite vividly. Inspiring!

Beautiful!
Tadashi, this is one of my favourite pieces of yours - so cool and laid back - "wistful" is a word that leaps to mind. I'm only listening on my iMac speakers, but it all sounds so clear and beautifully played and recorded. You have an amazing talent Tadashi-san, As ziti would say, "deepest bow"!
