EROSION

Information

Translucent (2016)

for Hichiriki, Koto, and Shō

Commissioned by Thomas Piercy (USA)

ca. 10 min.​

Program Note

Inspirations for EROSION (2016) came when I was pondering near the seashore at the Sunken Meadow State Park in New York, watching the waves crashing in and retreating on the coast. EROSION features a series of repetitive motifs imitating the waves, gradually inhaling other musical elements in the piece.

This work was premiered as Music in Motion Series at Bargemusic - New York City's floating concert hall - by Thomas Piercy (hichiriki), Jun Ando (koto), and Chatori Shimizu (shō) on July 2, 2016. Further performances include Tatami Recital Series at Globus Washitsu, New York City, on August 9, 2016; Tokyo to New York Concert at Bargemusic, New York City, on September 30, 2016; among others.
