Apologies again for the delay. As I was working on polishing the audio for these pieces, my friend and fellow composer/organizer for these concerts, Young-Shin Choi, sent me the versions that he made, and they sound great! Thanks Young-shin!

These concerts were a wonderful experience, and the hard work of all the participants (and many secret supporters on the sidelines) made them a great success. It’s truly a joy to be able to work together with performers and professionals of this caliber in producing our art. I look forward to doing it again soon!

Gwangpunge deollin ewha omyeo gamyeo nali daga
Gajie motoreugo geomijule geolligeoda
Jeo geomi nakhwain jul moreugo nabi jabdeut hareonda.

Falling pear-blossoms whirl madly about in the wind,
Unable to return to the tree; they are caught in spiders webs
And those spiders pounce on them, thinking they are butterflies

-Yi Chongbo (1693-1766)

This piece was written for the 2009 concert series, “consonance,” with performances in Japan in Korea. For some time now I have been fascinated by the potential for international interchange through music, and, with the help of my wonderful friends and colleagues, I have been fortunate enough to have opportunities to try to enact this dialog.

And, finally, as a bonus, here’s the fixed-media version of “Ewha, Nabi.”
