Together in Tohoku Report

band

This last August, I had the chance to help out with a SYLFF project called “Together in Tohoku,” which brought graduate student musicians from three different institutions, (Julliard, the Paris Conservatory, and the University of Music and Performing Arts in Vienna) to work with children in Japan affected by last year’s earthquake and tsunami.

Rather than going into too much detail on this page, though, SYLFF has just posted my article on the experience here.

If you’re interested there is more background information about the project here.

Also, here’s a performance of Tairyo Utaikomi (mentioned in the article):

Elegy for Tohoku

and one of the many versions of Song for Japan

...by admitting a new perception of space and giving it an active sense, is it not possible to discover a new unexpected, unexplored world?
