‘fallings’, my latest large-scale work at about 45 minutes in length, will be premièred on Wednesday 19 October and repeated on 20 October. The performances are part of atelier jaku’s Vanitas Series vol.2 (the first was in November 2014) and will also include four Japanese premières of wandelweiser-collective composer Jürg Frey’s pieces.
Both concerts will take place in the Ōmigakudō at Tokyo Opera City.

I acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $157 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.
Nous remercions le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil a investi 157 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
This is my first piece for shamisen. The piece is a series of variations on the John Taverner’s pre-1530 setting of the ‘in nomine’ plainchant. In the English Renaissance, as well as more recently, it has been a very popular melody for variations. More information can be found here.
