Premiere of Koto piece

Koto virtuoso Satsuki Odamura premiered my piece Chinkon for bass koto in the Japanese section of Townsville cemetery last Saturday night. This was a performance for invited guests as a preview before the full multimedia work In Repose (involving dance, video and pieces by other composers) is presented to the public in May. My wife Jewel and myself flew there for the occasion. The music was presented with original choreography danced by Wakako Asano of the Sydney Dance Company. It was a truly magical night.
