My favorite jazz musician

イメージ
I belong to the jazz music club and I play the drum. So many my favorite musicians  are drummer. But there is a guitarist who I respect. His name is Mei Inoue. He is still young, but his technique is very good. His music is beautiful. I think he is genius.
 He belong to a band called SPACE BOYS, and I helped their live with my club members last week. I met him and I listened his music for the first time in the flesh. All of their music were cool and May's face when he play his solo part was more cool! I wanted to listen more!
 After the live performance, they talked to us. Keisuke Nakamura, who is trumpeter and a leader of the band, said that he had belonged to a jazz music club when he was a college student. So I think I should practice more. It might be useful in the future.
  At last, I shaked hands with them. So I was  happy! And Mey smiled at me. So I was sooooo happy!!!
  I wanna meet them again!

Fukuoka

イメージ
Today, I return to my family home in Fukuoka. I have lived in Kumamoto with my grandparents since I started to go to Kumamoto University.
I'm on the bullet train now. I'm going to meet my brother for the first time in the while. He maybe study hard, so I should help him.
 I'll go to "Nakasu Jazz" today! I'm looking forward to looking at and listening to various jazz musics!!!

concept

The research collectively informed eleven conceptual planning proposals for the entire City of Chicago that conceived housing as a catalyst to reinforce transportation cores.


Students then individually zoomed in on a specific moment of their urban concept and focused on the design of new multi-unit housing at the scale of an average city block.



River Reclaim proposes that housing can re-frame an image of a city by re-conceptualizing the Chicago River as a singular, continuous infrastructure along which individual river sites are re-developed as new magnets of activity and residential density .

area

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, more than 80% of Americans live in urban areas.


The idea of a hybrid collective as a development plan continues into the housing layout and interior programming of public areas.

Backstage Pass

イメージ
Before you can speak, she jumps up and runs to the backstage door. However, there is another security guard. He grabs Julie's arm.
The guard is busy with Julie, you think. Maybe this is my Chance! Today, I read the book Backstage Pass. It is the forth story in the Atama-ii books series. I read it for the first time. I belong to the jazz music club, so I choose this story today.

In this story, the main character and her friend go backstage at a gig and she can see the musicians up close! I envy her but I can't do that because I think we mustn't do that.

I read just one story today, but there are many endings in this story. So I wanna read more and know another story!
