An audacious movement of ‘expansion’ of the respective traditions of the shakuhachi and the guitar pushed as they are at times to the limits of the possible, increasing the expressive range, the texture of the dialogue, the harmonic dimension and the tone-colour.
The listener can either follow this music in all its minute and complex particulars, or let himself be freely transported by his own vision and dream in no specific direction.
Awarded Third Prize from ‘Shakuhachi Chamber Music International Prize 2008’
Dedicated to the shakuhachi player; Andrew MacGregor.
