Here’s a stereo version of my eight-channel piece, “haru no umi,” that was performed at last Saturday’s Future Music Oregon Concert.

This piece is based on the text of a haiku by Japanese poet Yosa no Buson (1716-1783). The text, “haru no umi, hinemosu notari notari kana,” translates to: “The ocean in spring / all day ebbs / and flows undoubtedly”

Art, to be fully appreciated, must be true to contemporaneous life. It is not that we should ignore the claims of posterity, but that we should seek to enjoy the present more. It is not that we should disregard the creations of the past, but that we should try to assimilate them into our consciousness.
