Chamber Music Projects
Contemporary Japanese music for clarinet and accordion
Stream, the motto of the concert, alludes to the title of one of the compositions, Midstream by the Japanese composer Keiko Harada. On the other hand, it can be associated with the flow of music in general. Especially the works by Hosokawa and Imai, as well as in most instances the compositions by Mundry and Harada evoke the image of a constantly streaming soundlayer. The soundscape of Japanese music is often linked to phenomena in nature and biological cycle. In this sense, the intensity, kinetic energy and formal parameters in the music act like a river with its rapids, vertices, and shallows, changing its characteristics over time and place and even according to the spectator’s point of view. At some stage, the flow might even reach the wide, deep and obscure ocean.

Frontiers are crossed in uncommon ways: Contemporary compositions that have connections with Rock Music or even Heavy Metal. Volume, tempo, distortion, and aggressive playing techniques are the links to harder genres of music. Sometimes quite obvious, sometimes more subtle.
