a ringing terrain, a gush of summer (蝉時⾬)

Solo hichiriki

The piece meditates on the sound of cicadas that confirms the emergence of summer. Their powerful and piercing streams of calls keep on surging in the scorching heat. Yet, I personally find a sense of melancholy for their transient lives as well as nostalgic memories of Japanese summers. 
Premiered on January 15, 2022 at the Fifteen-Minutes-of-Fame concert featuring hichiriki player Thomas Piercy ​
