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”

My guiding idea, which I have been conscious of ever since I found myself a composer, is the idea of the brotherhood of nations, a brotherhood in spite of war and strife. This is the idea I am trying to serve, with the best of my ability, in my music.
