Programme Note:
I wrote this piece a few weeks after the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake, an immediate emotional response. It was written as part of mmm… ensemble’s hibari project, a charity recording project to help the disasters’ victims. I modelled both the form – the lengths of the three sections are in a 5:7:5 ratio – but also the unpremeditated method of writing on mediaeval Japanese poetry. The renga of the title are long serial poems with multiple authors; the originating author would write an opening stanza of 5:7:5 syllables and pass it to a fellow poet, who would respond with a stanza of 7:7 syllables. A third poet would continue with another 5:7:5 stanza before passing it on to a fourth, who would write a 7:7 stanza, and so on. This piece is the opening stanza of a renga to which nobody has responded.—daryl jamieson
