I am watching a J-pop music video. It is something one of my students suggested. I find I am interested in the music, yes, but I am more taken up by the visual balance in the video, by the architecture of the room the singers are in. The visual sense is clean and well-balanced. The counterpoint is familiar, and the rhythm is something I have listened to all of my life. The language is different, but I rarely understand song lyrics. The recording quality is excellent, and I have always been a fan of well-recorded music. The exuberance of money.
