ParaDice


Mention at the biennial acousmatic composition competition M├ętamorphoses 2002,Brussels, Belgium.

This piece is a study of Noh-kan, a flute used in traditional Japanese Noh theatre. The attempt of this piece is to explore the "space of Noh-kan". Here, Noh-kan's sound shifts perpetually between several pair of poles; sound/breath, sound (noise)/music, abstract/concrete, micro/macro-image, oriental/occidental.

The title of the piece means "paradise" and "para-dice", a pair of dice. They say the sound of Noh-kan can communicate with the other side of the world --- maybe paradic(s)e exists in sound/as sound/with sound.
