Notes

  • Program notes: 

    An aol Japanese poem "Iroha", in which all the Japanese phonemes are used only once is selected and read aloud,recorded and pitch analysis was done, pitch pattern was traced and assigned as notes without using any micro tones, thus reading intonation is transcribed into a string melody theme. This was taken into a main theme of an orchestral piece. Originally it was intended to express speech phoneme by live orchestra, which is not possible. The title is from this concept; timbre composed of another timbre. The theme is developed and controls the whole structure of the piece.
