Atem-Lied [Breath-Song]
Hosokawa, T

'Toshio Hosokawa, Japan s preeminent living composer, constantly explores the boundaries between cultures. His distinctive compositions examine the relationship between Western avant-garde art and traditional Japanese culture, and are influenced by the static structures of the Gagaku music of the Japanese court. Nature and its inherent transience also greatly influence his compositions. 'Transience is beautiful,' says Hosokawa, who uses the Buddhist notion of balance between life and death to describe his musical language: 'The tone comes from silence, it lives, it returns to silence.'
