Description: The title Iwa Ni comes from a poem by 17th-century Japanese poet Matsuo Bashō. By itself, iwa ni means something like “into the rock”. Bashō wrote the poem at the mountain temple of Risshakuji, as part of his 1,500-mile journey around northern Japan.
This piece may be performed with or without the fixed media ("tape"). The unaccompanied version is structured as three short movements; the electroacoustic version is a single long movement.
