Tentetsu no Kase

Arrangement: Kiyoshi Nagata
Premiere Performance: October 16, 2004 - Hart House Theatre

Tentetsu refers to the switching of a rail car to another track, while kase are the shackles, which joins the cars together. As the title suggests this piece is constantly changing directions and pulling back and forth between a four beat and a three beat structure. This piece features two improvised dueling solos on taiko set.
