Magic Mirror: Reflections of an American Composer in Japan
American composer Marty Regan presents his works for traditional Japanese instruments and discusses challenges encountered in intercultural composition and issues of musical identity. His presentation will also include a brief performance demonstration of the shakuhachi (end-blown bamboo flute) as well as a discussion of the intersections between Japanese musical aesthetics and other forms of creative expression and aspects of Japanese culture.
