"Roadside Picnic" is a piece produced by Hiroyuki Nagashima and Shigeru Matsui, pursuing the possibilities of “a new form of story telling, by the usage of digital sound technology” (financed by Japan Society for the Promotion of Science :JSPS24652030) . At first, this was planned simply as a sound installation, but visuals made by director/film maker Naoki Kato was joined in, eventually bringing to completion as a full film piece.

STORY
Roadside Picnic
Shigeru Matsui


The End begins
A sign of a new beginning

When?
Now
Now?
Right now

The End begins
A blue beginning

Where?
There
There?
Right here

The End begins
The newness of light

Right now
The moment in blue comes to a close
I will go hunt down God
Just nearby

Silent on the roadside
A new picnic
The End begins
A new religion

The sign of the new
Has yet to come
