This work was made for some of my favorite people on this earth, Dan and Ayami.
Two maniac percussionists who form the Shiki Duo. They asked me to write them a piece for their tour of Japan in 2016 which I finished while in Rome, heading to the Cortona Sessions.
The piece is very quiet and pensive, imagining a story of two travelers whose pilgrimage take them through the cosmos.
Worlds are moments. Galaxies a flicker in time.
The two travelers sing dyads that open up universes.
The marimba is merely their path.
