SYNOPSIS
The filmmaker improvises and through a conversation with himself, he has a chaotic worldview evocative of the firing of nerve cells, clustering sounds of convulsiveness. Finely-detailed images filled with light are synced to sound. Nature creates the glow of light and the beauty of a shape lying between regularity and irregularity. Sounds and images with a granular texture. These things grasp the depths of the brain.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

I have experienced intense pleasant sensations when the timing of the sounds made by others who are improvising slightly deviates from the timing I have had in mind. I have also felt a similar pleasant sensation from the timing of sounds when a large volume of data is sent to a sound module equipped with a buffer and the machine is not able to process it. I have thought viscerally that these are one type of pleasant sensation that has been given to humans and it is a very important feeling.

Although such a phenomenon that occurs in the space between regularity and irregularity may be seen in Nature, non-linear systems in many cases remain unexplained.

Moreover, even among the varieties of pleasure, it is not something that can be translated into language per se, such as memory, story, and attitude can, and I want to create a new sense of pleasure that combines with other pleasures, extracting and amplifying pleasurable feelings that work directly on the portions of the brain that takes in pleasant sensations.


REVIEWS / Thank you so much for all these words.
