Notes de programme :
broken ink was inspired by the 15th century Japanese artist Sesshū’s broken ink(haboku) paintings. These scrolls are painted with broad, abstract monochromatic brushstrokes on a background of delicate washes. The rough strokes are meant to evoke landscape, but to my eyes, appeared so abstracted as to look more like the abstract expressionist paintings of the early 1950s, especially those by Franz Kline.Taking Sesshū’s paintings as inspiration, I wrote a piece which, like Sesshū’s haboku works, is viewed from the bottom up: the piece is one long ascent, with the rougher strokes in the bass and the delicate washes soughing in the treble background, while the resonances floating through the notated silences connect the disparate parts into a unified whole in the mind of the listener. Drawing further on my training in and experience with Japanese traditional musics, the structure of broken ink is modelled on Nō theatre, the broad harmonic outlines of the piece are based on the standard chords that the Japanese mouth organ (shō) play in gagaku, and the melodic figures are based on Nō flute modes.
