Honami

Offermans, W

In the Japanese language many words are made by combining two characters. Honami is a word that combines the characters of ho and nami. Ho mears ear (i.e. of a corn) and nami means wave. Together they refer to the waving scenery one can see when the wind blows over a blooming rice field. Here, the wind is the cause, the rice field is the medium and the waving movement is the consequential result.

In Honami, the flutist is supposed to use his breath in a similar way. Allow your breathing (the in-as well as exhaling) to profile the timing and sonority. Regard this piece as a possibility to develop and expose the breathing. For Honami, your breath is the cause, the score is the medium and the sound of the flute is the consequential result.' - Wil Offermans
