Renga - 連歌
The Renga series is my laboratory for the Shakuhachi, my primary instrument since 2015. The musical idiom which evolved on the Shakuhachi over 1000 years of isolation in Zen monasteries is one of the most unique and distinctive in the world. Renga are my investigations of this musical tradition, and my attempt to introduce it to musicians who would never otherwise hear it.
2016, for Shakuhachi, Viola, and Cello
