Yūgen is the debut single by Ampleya, pre-released on 29 March for Piano Day 2019.
The word yūgen is a Japanese term referring to the beauty of human suffering beyond that which can be described. Informed by the structural use of repetition, cycles and static harmony found in traditions of Indonesian gamelan and Japanese gagaku, the work explores concepts of “profound grace” through traditional Asian musical aesthetics and concepts of timelessness, stillness and being. The live and extended version was accompanied by a multichannel video installation documenting vulnerability, ritual and loss within the social, urban and domestic spheres.
The video will be released soon.
