Deer Calling, 2017
About an environmental problem in Japan, the beast harm by wild deer is one of the topics. They eat crops, fallen leaves and soft tree bark in the forest which caused to annoy people, soil can not grow fertile and trees will wither. These all things are in danger of breaking natural ecosystem. Now, the number of wild deer are increasing. Therefore, local hunters and city governments are destroying wild deer to extermination. On the other hand, in Japan, deer are often respected as a god' messenger. As a matter of fact, deer are enshrined at the Kasugataisha-Shrine in Japan. I feel a contradiction about value of life here. I thought that if I used a deer antler as material for the instrument, it would become music expression for value of animal's life.
