The word TSUZURE conveys a number of different meanings such as to write or to weave. It also implies the taking of one’s time in each step of the creative process, the careful layering of each line or thread to produce an intricate tapestry. In this piece, the taiko, shinobue and koto (or shamisen) interplay in a thoughtful, restrained manner to produce a delicate musical picture.
