- The rhythm of rain, the touch of life -

Twinkle and trickle, a soothing rhythm
How does the rain sound to you?

Sceneries and sounds you would otherwise overlook in oblivion
Flowers rustling in the wind, twinkling raindrops
Rain falling gently on the water’s surface, soil, leaves, umbrellas, and asphalt
Take a listen to these rhythms, just for a moment

Won`t you stop amidst your hectic everyday life from time to time to
reflect upon yourself while allowing time to flow more slowly and quietly?
You should be able to discover a view different to the ones you are used to

Sound and Scenery

Today, we live in a world filled with many sounds.
We segregate sounds from our environment by only choosing those that stand out.

But there are so many faint, yet beautiful sounds in the world.
Birds chirping in the fields, wind brushing the leaves, and tunes of the advent of sunlight following the rain…

These faint sounds which cannot be heard without paying particular attention will almost certainly vanish into
the hustle and bustle of the cities, without being noticed.

Soundscape (scenery of sounds) is a concept which was introduced in the 1960s.
It refers to the idea of appreciating sounds unique to each location, not as separate entities, but as part of the scenery.

Today, where the relationship between sounds and sceneries is slowly being reexamined based on the concept,
isn`t there a need for us to revisit our relationship with sounds?
All we have to do is to change our mindset a little.
You may find that sceneries which you have been familiar with may appear a little different with different sounds.

"amaoto" is one of the solutions that KOKUSAI DSP. has reached.
