Programme Note:
Eiko Sadamatsu's 'dream story' is a poem filled with images of bitter coldness, emptiness, death, and nostalgia, but, for all that, remains a poem with beauty, life, and activity, not least in the speed of transitions between the images. In my setting of this poem, I attempt to capture the fragmentary nature of dream imagery with quick changes of texture and mood, and the cold emptiness with a focus on the high range of the shakuhachi and violin harmonics. The voice is often distant from the instruments, the dreamer moving through a disconnected world.

Premiere Information:
19 May 2013, Kujōkan (part of the Tokyo National Museum), Tokyo, Japan
Mika Kimula, voice; Christopher Yohmei Blasdel, shakuhachi; Shungo Mise, violin
