Saxophone Player In Odori

On May 24th, I met a saxophone player around Odori-Nishi 4 cho me.

While taking pictures of the white, yellow, purple and red pansies, a lovely music of the saxophone slowly filled Odori Park. The harmony was so natural, it took me fifteen, twenty minutes to realize.

Right before he played a new song, I asked him for permission to film. He answered; “Yeah sure. By the way, are you from Hokkaido University?”………”Oh sorry.”



The Process

  • film (7 min) the saxophone player and his surroundings
  • back home, import all files to Premiere Pro CS6
  • edit (1 hour), export (3 minutes)



  • Camera : Nikon D800
  • Lens : Nikkor 50mm f1.8
  • Editing Software : Adobe Premiere Pro CS6
