I liked the idea of attempting to reconcile two contradictory spaces, and also the concept of the two somehow contributing to each other in their own ways despite the difference in their natures. I think that the echoes from the experimental musicians can somehow add an imaginative aspect to the silence of ikebana practice, while ikebana's discipline of refined vitality can give experimental music a new aspect.

Although the traditional image of ikebana's noiselessness may seem to be the polar opposite of the realm of experimental music, I think that the practice of ikebana itself has a certain energy that stems from it's short-lived nature, giving it a somewhat loud and daring aspect. Thus, despite ikebana's aural silence, the loudness of its transient beauty- derived from the fact that it has limited time to flaunt its beauty before wilting- allows it to give off energy that interacts well with the "exuberant noise making" of the space of experimental music.
