music played with black ink. 音楽する墨

Where does it start? And where does it end? Viewers would inevitably look for the start and the end of a dancing flow of brush strokes by Ugetsu. It is music played with black ink. It is a requiem. It is because of this tune that a life emerging from the line touches a chord.
