Program Notes

Commissioned by Hiroshi and Shiori Tanaka, Tokyo, Japan.

This piece was composed with the memories in mind of riding on the Shinkansen trains in April 2004, between Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka. I was struck by the contrast of the relative silence and motionlessness of my familiar environment inside the train, and the life of unknown worlds through which I passed. Only a quiet gaze connected me to the outside, and the machine that hurled me through quickly changing landscapes remained the only world I inhabited, making the fleeting images appear like a dream.[1]
