Sheet Music: Score
Deimos : for shakuhachi and harp / Cyrus Meurant.
by Cyrus Meurant (2003)
The title refers to the smaller and outer most of Mars' two moons (the other being Phobos). Deimos was the personification of dread in Greek mythology, the son of Ares and Aphrodite.
The formative ideas for the composition stemmed from the shakuhachi having been used as a basis for meditation, suggesting a subordinate, even symbiotic state.
My thanks to Anne Boyd for her encouragement and support throughout the composition process.
