dc.description.abstract This is a chamber music composition for solo japanese shakuhachi (bamboo, endblown traditional japanese flute) with guitar, violin and cello. The work consists of score and performance parts, running approximately 12 minutes in duration. It integrates traditional techniques and sounds of the japanese flute with Western ensemple in a reflective piece, employing both traditional methods of shakuhachi playing and contemporary extended (new) techniques in Western notation. There is a very small body of chamber repertoire for this instrument, allowing it to play with Western ensembles, to which this piece adds. This work draws on experience as both a performer and composer for the instrument and was recorded in demo by Shakuhachi Master, Kaoru Kakizakai Sensei in japan. This work contributes to the body of contemporary repertoire for traditional instruments, such as the shakuhachi, providing new music that employs contemporary techniques as well as usual style. It explores the intersection of Eastern and Western approaches to music. The work emerges from research aimed to integrate non-Western (Japanese) traditional instruments with Western (string, quartet, etc) instruments, investigating conventions of notation, interpretation and pitch. The larger project is finding new ways to mediate different understandings of culture through interpretation. The research project aims to notate music that was traditionally conveyed orally, by exploring and extending the musical techniques and conventions of traditional instruments with new contemporary methods of instrumentation and performance. In creating new music in this manner, the project brings Eastern and Western instruments to the contemporary Classical, Western performance context, thereby exploring cultural difference through musical language.
