Score and parts
|Percussion, piano, cello, c.12'30
Korean traditional music's rhythmic modes (changdan), pansori vocal techniques (grace notes with accents and glissandi) and modes (pyungyangjo and kyemyunjo), are merged with Western avant-garde compositional techniques (dissonance/consonance and diatonic/chromatic sonorities) whilst samulnori gong-sounds (with their eternal after-tone resonance association to Catholic bells) become symbolic of the spiritual dimension. A traditional Korean changgo drum quietly unfolds, with remembered samulnori percussion ensemble rhythms into an accruing motif momentum towards an explosive early two-handed oneness climax. Its gentle subsiding gives way to a beautiful cello lyric-stasis that floats through the air in Korean modal based sounds.
