tteii (2020) & Hitah (2020)

Hitah (2020) is a subset of the longer piece tteii (2020), and the two pieces share common musical materials. Therefore, these two pieces should not be programmed in the same concert.

Program note:

「誰そ彼(たそかれ)。夕暮れの暗さに人の識別がつかず、白米の味でさえ朧げになる。」

¨Dusk. One can no longer be identified from the darkness, even the taste of white rice becomes obscure.¨
