This is "Downtune Ed", a piece for guitar harmonics, rhythmic guitar, piano, and percussions.
My guitar's low E string is downtuned to E flat here.

Fractal Mold (8 and 9 October, 2021)
I waste my time at the bus station
I blow my time in a train
And then here I'm with in a packed pod
Once again and again with in a box
Sitting like cogs, right, mechanical cogs that
need to be placed with in a grinder to
produce yet another heavy duty and grander mechanical prison for others who need
to produce what needs to be
made & packed & sold & mold for ever
a-gain in a fractal mold.
This is also part of my tracks about "The Rime of the Ancient Mariner". It's called "The Albatross".
It's been recorded by me on a piano -- quality is not very good, sorry...
The fff you hear by the end of the track corresponds to the arrow hitting the albatross.
The picture is the famous illustration by Gustave Doré

I don't really know much about the "Japanese Spirit" --
it would be foolish of me to believe that I acquired some understanding regarding such a complex element --
though I have the feeling that a character like Soichiro-sensei in "Fate / Stay Night" captures that same complexity
"Good" and "Bad" are concepts that cannot be applied to a Japanese behavior the same way the are applied, e.g., in Europe
Perhaps "Right" and "Wrong" are the concepts a Japanese would focus their attention on?
