Yugenro is the nome-de-plume of artist Keith Rowley-Yugen. The name “Yugenro” is taken from the word “yugen” and the first two letters of his last name. His music appears here on Last.fm as “Yugenro” to provide a page unique to his music, separate from any other artists using the name “Yugen.”

Yugen means “mysterious vagueness, subtle order of beauty.” I have taken this beautiful concept to name my own music and art, which generally reflects the mood of Zen rice-paper-and-ink paintings depicting landscapes enveloped in mist and cloud. In the words of Alan Watts, yugen is:

“to watch the sun sink behind a flower-clad hill, to wander on and on in a huge forest without thought of return, to stand upon the shore and gaze after a boat that disappears behind distant islands, to contemplate the flight of wild geese seen and lost among the clouds… When the vision is the sudden perception of something mysterious and strange, hinting at an unknown never to be discovered…”
In my own words:

“yugen seeks the fringes, the boundaries, the periphery of consciousness. It exists within the grey areas, where sound and vision meet in the blackness behind our eyes.
