About

The Japanese classical musical drama Noh with its austere gestures and usual delineation of time has provided me with the initial inspiration for this piece. Upon preparation for a Noh drama the performers never rehearse together. Each musician and actor prepares their individual part alone. This enables the eventual performance to not be controlled by a single performer but alternatively by the interactions of the whole ensemble. The representation of time in a Noh production frequently is non-linear with plot alternating between numerous different time frames.
