flute (doubling alto flute), bassoon, horn, percussion, violin, viola, cello, contrabass

Written for Avanti! chamber ensemble’s Japan-themed XXV Summer Sounds 2010 festival, the short ensemble piece (toku)Satz(u) reflects upon my immediately preceding first trip to Tokyo, and the surprisingly cozy atmosphere occasionally felt in such a strange culture there. After an initial bafflement, the peculiar surroundings reveal their pulsating character to be rather magically gripping.

Avanti!n Japani-aiheiselle XXV Suvisoitto 2010 -festivaalille kirjoitettu lyhyt ensembleteos (toku)Satz(u) peilaa välittömästi sävellysprosessia edeltäneen Tokion-matkani paikoin yllättävänkin kodikkaita tuntemuksia oudossa kulttuurissa. Erikoinen ympäristö sykkiikin alkuhämmennyksen jälkeen taianomaisen mukaansatempaavasti.
