L’asse Roma-Tokyo-Berlino (Made in Japan #16)

Here we are / Stuck by this river / You and I / Underneath a sky that’s ever falling down, down, down / Ever falling down

Metti la cornice di Villa Massimo a Roma. Metti Carsten Nicolai da Berlino, nome d’arte Alva Noto. Metti il maestro Ryuchi Sakamoto e il suo pianoforte. E metti pure Brian Eno e la sua meravigliosa By this river qui presentata dai due musicisti in una versione che ne esalta la scheletrica bellezza. C’è bisogno d’altro?

Through the day / As if on an ocean Waiting here / Always failing to remember why we came, came, came / I wonder why we came

You talk to me / As if from a distance / And I reply / With impressions chosen from another time, time, time / From another time
