In Cage with Adams


Version of "Mbira" for toy piano (or piano).

Program Notes:
In Cage with Adams is a version of Mbira, or In Cage with Adams, which was composed in 2012. It was inspired by the subtle resonance of the traditional African percussion instrument, mbira, and by the piano music of the two great American composers, two Johns - John Cage and John Adams.
The piece is meditative in character and uses minimalistic techniques, recycling the same pitches in different order, until it gradually comes to its natural end, like a burning candle.
