Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The Japanese word « Shôrô » means the tower sheltering a bell situated near the Buddhist temples. This term was used as the title for this piece witch is essentially built around a spectral development of the sound of a bell that I recorded during a recent stay at Mount Koya.
    The evocation of the resonance of this bell alternates with several meditative paintings that were inspired by the visit of this site of great beauty and which is one of the most important centers of spirituality in the Far East.
    This piece is an attempt of synthesis between the Western contemporary music and the traditional Oriental and more particularly Japanese music.
