Yasuharu Nagura on Bandcamp

 A band camp typically refers to a high school, college, or university marching band sumer camp. Band camp is often mandatory for members of the band, and constitutes the majority of the preparation a marching band makes before its marching season (learning how to march, learning “sets” on the field, memorizing show songs). A high school marching band may travel to a college or university for band camp for use of its facilities (dormitories, fieldhouses, fields) and services, or it may stay at the school. The time at band camp is used for focused rehearsals and time for bonding between band members. The colorguard also learns and rehearses with the marching band.

Band camp might also be used to refer to an individual camp where participants focus on developing their own musical skill, in which case it would more likely be called a music camp.

Finally, Bandcamp is an American online music company founded in 2008 by former Oddest co-founder Ethan Diamond and programmers Shawn Grunberger, Joe Holt and Neal Tucker, headquartered in Oakland, California. Reference

What is Spotify and how does it work?

Yasuharu Nagura on Spotify

Spotify is a digital music streaming service that gives you access to millions of songs, podcasts and videos from artists all over the world.

Spotify is immediately appealing because you can access content for free by simply signing up using an email address or by connecting with Facebook. If you’re not keen on monthly subscription fees for Spotify Premium, or just want to dip your toe in and test it out, it’s easy to get started and there’s no commitment.

You can find out the main differences between Spotify Free and Premium in our separate feature but as a quick summary, the free version is ad-supported much like radio stations. The free version of Spotify can be accessed on PC, laptop and mobile phone, but the full service needs a Spotify Premium subscription.

How does Spotify work?

Getting started with listening to music on Spotify is easy:

  1. Visit the Spotify website and sign-up. We’d recommend signing up with Facebook if you have an account as it’ll make it easier to find and follow friends, see what they’re listening to and share songs with them.
  2. Choose a subscription level. We’d recommend going for Spotify Premium as it gives you access to more features, is more flexible and will connect with more devices.
  3. Download and install the free Spotify application. There are versions for desktop and iPhone/iPad and Android phones.
  4. Sign into your account on those devices and get listening.

The basic setup is pretty straightforward but there’s much more to Spotify once you delve in and it gets smarter the more you listen.

Hawaiian Music

The Hawaiian music by steel guitar which is said to be Hawaiian music is made by the Caucasus of the mainland of the United States, and is said to be “papa · haore · music”. Papa is a half English dull word, Haore is a white person, if literally translating it is semi – whites music. There is also a style unique to Hawaii. For example, there is a local boy wearing an Aloha shirt and playing an ukulele. Ukulele is a prototype small guitar (Bragini) brought in by Portuguese immigrants at the end of the 19th century, the theory that the Aloha shirt was made by Chinese immigrants in the 1930s is powerful.

Painting as theraphy : free drawing

 

Painted by Yasuharu Nagura entitled『nonlinear_01』on October 15, 2018

 I acknowledged the existence of my own injured suppressed <inner child> in my own paintings and carried out self-healing training to unleash the feelings of that “child”. Painting as therapy has already established as art therapy. It is a way to draw a picture with no intention in the hand. This depiction method is regarded as a way to achieve an unconscious complex and express the basic problem of life visually. The act of drawing a picture is exactly expressing herself strongly, giving a passage to express emotions. It triggers so that unconsciousness appears freely. Like image effects, it bridges between conscious self and unconscious elements, and between reasonable and irrational intuition elements. It represents the contents of consciousness and it is a means of releasing the suppressed energy contained therein. In this way, painting is effective as a therapy, but the most important point is that after drawing a picture, rather than interpreting it,  drawing it out as a child.
