Work Overview

This work was commissioned as part of a suite of piano pieces entitled:

"The Right Hand Does Not Know What the Left Hand is Doing"

It was co-composed between New York and Sydney, with the combined cultures of Japan and Australia imbued into the music.

With the two composers having had no interaction with one another apart from deciding the general premise of the works and sending the templates to each other, the music is surprisingly coherent and contains many passages of beauty

Movement 1 - Masatora Goya provided the template for this movement in 5/4 and the pitch material was set to five black keys with one white key (pentatonic with one outside note). Masatora wrote the right hand and Jessica the left hand.
Movement 2 - Jessica Wells provided the template for this movement with the pitch material set to all white keys with a black key included in every measure that was NOT in 4/4 meter. Jessica wrote the right hand and Masatora the left hand. Included twice in this movement is a repeated note rhythm reminiscent of the call of a Kookaburra.
