Brown

The mallets beat the marimba. The brown guitar battles against the brown marimba. The movement that occurs between these consecutive shocks is “brown Brownian motion.”

This is a revised edition, which was modified after its premiere.
Dedicated to Mototsugu Shimamura, my patron, who is the founder of “Shimamura Music Co.,Ltd.”

‘The Salutation’ for alto flute solo (eBook-music)

In Publishings on March 17, 2014 at 3:12 pm

Salutation

Three movements for alto flute solo : “Abyss” “Awakening” “Apparition”.
These three essences of three stanzas from the English poem “The Salutation” by Thomas Traherne (1637 or 1639-1674) inspired me to compose this piece.
This is a revised edition, which was modified after its debut and three performances in Kitami, Taiwan, Shimonoseki, and Tokyo.

Dedicated to the flutist Takanori Yamane.
