Writing notation like singing a song.
ONNADE are old based letters of the KANA letters in Japan. ONNADE is a type of old fashioned letters. In the past, women were not permitted to write KANJI. KANJI was originally only used by men. After a while, women used ONNADE for writing down their emotions on a piece of paper, for example writing love songs. There are certain rules for writing ONNADE, it’s a beautiful expression. I associate ONNADE with singing a song, therefore, I tried to combine the aesthetic culture with the notation of reviving our sense of beauty.
“Feeling notation” is a concept of this project. Notation has originally systematic tempo rules: pitch and chord. This new notation catches the emotion of the singer, when she/he sings stronger or weaker, which is totally different from general notation.
NOTATION OF ONNADE
Japanese character “KANA or ONNADE” is originally a beautiful and feminine carved shape because of its origin. They used to express their emotions by implication. This stems from Japanese roots of expression. In diverse cultures, we tend to lose our grass roots. To look back at aesthetic history is a truly significant experience.
