“Kojiki and The Universe” was created by Kitaro in collaboration with Astronomy Professor Kazunari Shibata. The entire production of Kojiki and the Universe was developed using modern film editing techniques, as well as state-of-the-art hardware and software. In Japanese myth: logy, Kojiki is a story closely related to evolution of the universe. It describes the origin of Heaven, Earth and the creation of the Gods. Utilizing Kitaro’s album as the soundtrack, “Kojiki and The Universe” is a chronicle of astronomical research as well as a beautiful introduction to modern astronomy for everyone. Here’s an example of one of the scenes (http://bit.ly/2z3bw3x) from the show.
The Sacred Journey of Ku-Kai series is an earthly voyage that transports the listener to the eighty-eight sacred temples located on Shikoku Island in Japan, ancestral home of the beloved Buddhist holy man Ku-kai. The music, which pays homage to the true to life excursion made over 1100 years ago on Shikoku Island endures to this day. Each track on the album revolves around the unique bell sound from the individual temples, using actual sampling and Kitaro’s inspired musical interpretations and distillations of their essences.
