dc.description.abstractTsuki no Shirabe was composed at the request of Jun Aita-san to commemorate her 60th birthday of her mother, Michiko Saito-san. I asked to compose music that is both reminiscent of Japanese music and aesthetics, and also sounds like my own. The challenge was to strike a balance that respects the rich musical tradition of Japan, while never resorting to mere exoticism. The piece consists of six parts all performed without pause, forming a large, musical narrative. The themes are cyclical, and are developed in ways biographical to the life of Saito-san. In the kumiuta tradition of art song with koto, the performer both sings and accompanies herself. In keeping with this, texts were carefully selected to reflect periods of her life.eng
