Staff lines in a circle, hand drawn with a rolling ink stamp, in one uninhibited stroke; the ensō is a practice related to zen and the idea of wabi-sabi; often explained as the beauty of imperfection.
Combined with the idea of the sustained or repeated tone in minimalistic drone-based music, often characterised by lengthy audio performances, the ensō, on the other hand, is a documentation of the creator’s state of mind and the context of creation in a brief period of time.

Ensō / Rondo is performed once a day, every day. In Ensō / Rondo week, from Monday October 16th to Sunday October 22nd, the drawings will be published online the same day.
