Product details

Hokusai Mixtape is an immersive, richly textured work comprising flute, viola, harp and live electronic sounds. The piece draws inspiration from Debussy's "Sonata" and Takemitsu's, "And then I knew 'twas Wind". These two works occupy a similar space of dreamlike reflection and occasional surges of activity, all wrapped up in an elusive sound world. Debussy was known to be deeply inspired by Japanese culture. A copy of Hokusai's famous artwork, "The Great Wave off Kanagawa", hung beside his desk. Takemitsu's piece was written in response to Debussy's, and my work, Hokusai Mixtape, acknowledges both pieces through subtle quotation, remixing and electronic manipulation of various elements. The piece takes the hypothetical form of an old cassette 'mixtape' where memories of different songs are collaged together and clouded by tape hiss, distortions and imperfections.
