Group of rice ears living near a landfill pond, along with water striders and tadpoles, is aiming for a happy harvest festival. The sun & rain said we're always on your side.

Hello, Thank you for watching! This is mivjm :) I’m gonna talk about this improvised world. If you want to concentrate only on music or video, please turn off subtitles. So let's start with the title and theme. “風待月 (Original title)” refers to June and is read as “Kazemachizuki”. And the main theme of the 4th song is “Ear of rice”. A fresh green carpet swaying under the sun and the breeze is dancing that aim to fertile autumn. But when I set up my viewpoint on the high sky, this paddy field can be re-recognized as being modestly nurtured by the neighbored huge reclamation pond. On the surface of the paddy field, water striders and tadpoles radiate the ripples here and there, giving colorful lights to the smart body of rice ears. However, contrary to such calmness, dark gray clouds from the west sky is approaching this area slowly. The gray brings a water curtain that aims at the harvest festival. It's raining as crazy. Group of rice ears and insects seem to be waiting for their arrival ... get butterflies in the stomach ... can't sit still ... So, their discussions heated up. Scarecrows go easy on them on the edge of a ridge between rice fields. A little while after, everyone has regained its usual calmness, they sway body smoothly, then stretch backs and spread hands, so shouted continuously to the sun "Ohhhh!". The sun which has noticed the momentum stares there to irradiating the pinpoint with energy by pushing away the thin clouds that block his view. In that way, this paddy field is still guided by nature's providence, and they are steadily holding hands, binding minds together, and will be living in earnest again tomorrow.

干拓池の傍で生きる稲穂の群れ。アメンボやオタマジャクシ達と目指すのは、あの幸福に満ちた豊穣の秋。太陽はもちろん厳しい風雨さえ味方だ。

こんにちは、mivjmです^^ご覧くださり有難うございます。この即興で描いた世界についてこれからお話します。音楽や映像だけに集中したい方は字幕表示をオフにしてくださいますよう、よろしくお願いします。それではまず曲名と主題についてから。『風待月』は6月を指し「かぜまちづき」と読みます。そして第3曲の主題は「稲穂」。陽を浴びそよ風に揺れるかぐわしき新緑のカーペットが豊穣の秋を見つめ踊っています。広々感じられるこの水田も視点を上空に据え直すとはるかに広大な干拓池の傍で慎ましく育まれているのだと再認識できます。水面ではアメンボやオタマジャクシがあちらこちらで波紋を煌めかせ稲穂のしなやかなプロポーションに鮮やかな彩りを与えています。しかし、そうした穏やかさとは裏腹に西の空からダークグレーの暗雲がこの一帯を目がけヒタヒタと迫ってくるのです。そのグレーがもたらすのは実りを呼び込む水のカーテン。まるで傘が程をなさないほどの狂おしい雨。稲穂も生き物達もその到来を今か今かと待ちわびているらしく先程から…ソワソワ…ドキドキ…井戸端会議を白熱させている様子。少し離れたあぜ道の端からは案山子たちが、ざわめく彼等を温かい眼差しで見守っています。ひとしきりガヤガヤし終えたのか辺りはいつもの穏やかさを取り戻し皆、思い思いの揺らぎにその身を預け柔らかに残る陽射しを享受しきろうと背筋を伸ばし、両手を広げ太陽に向かって「おーい!」と掛け声を飛ばし続けるのです。勢いに気づいた偉大なる太陽もその気持ちに応えようと視界を遮ぎる薄雲を押し退けてピンポイントにエネルギー照射するため焦点を合わせていきます。こうして、今日もまたこの水田は自然の摂理に導かれながら、一歩ずつ来たるべき慶びの日々へ向け、しっかりと手を取り合って…肌寄せ合って…真摯に生きて行くのです。
