No simple form conducts its lowing steer

Simple are sublime forms. I feel an affinity with those specific sensations.  Like Shinto, Zen of Japan, it all seemed to be secrets beyond comprehension. Those simple forms are continuously searching for its own origins. That is very attractive. I have been trying to think about the simple things. In my own theory so far, it is important if you take yourself to something great more accessible than you awaken results from the outside, without limiting the image. I still have been ongoing about 'how to be simple' that like Zen seeks enlightenment on a higher plane, they cannot stop. I reckon that the world can be seen as a subjective entity constantly being actively formed by individual perceptions. It could also be objective.

Odalisque au tambourin-Harmonie en bleu, 1926 Henri Matisse

The spring is the season when the earth is like a child that

knows poems by heart as Rainer Maria Rilke said. 

Everything will be colourful and blooming, 

it is one of the most fascinating times in the year....

By the way, I will be choreographing one of the most classic

Arabic rhymes, 10 beats, IIqa‘ Sama‘i Thaqil in March... 

IIqa‘ Sama‘i Thaqil, called Samai for short,

is 10/8 is a relaxing sow tone;

there are 10 beats in each bar.

This rhythm also has unique accents.

As you can see if you listen carefully, this characteristic rhythm has emphasised

beats on the 1, 4, and 6 to 8, creating a tone that makes you feel relaxed 

and swaying in the cradle.


It is divided and can be counted by 3-2-1-1-3 or 3-2-2-3.

Listen to it many times and let it soak into your ears and body.

It is said that this dreamy rhythm of Samai is a traditional

music form of the Turkish Ottoman Empire and is often

played in Turkish instrumental form and Muwashah originated

by Andalus, where is located in present-day Southern Spain, 

also frequently used as the one of aristocratic art styles.
