program note:
This piece was composed for guitar, 13-strings koto and electronics. The sound creation is based on the crossing point between conception which I flashed while playing at a sandbox, and my long-years development of granular sampling technique. The piece consists of three parts which are titled as “Sara-sara (dry and smooth)”, “Boso-Boso (dry and crumbly)” and “Doro-Doro (muddy)”. The electronics part was realized by means of Max and Pro Tools at Kunitachi College of Music.
