This is one of the first pieces I wrote for the shakuhachi, and I tried to capture all the emotions I felt as an American in Japan for the first time. The incredible historic temples, the truly beautiful sakura trees in bloom, the subtle smell of real dashi, the warmth and kindness of the Japanese people… It was overwhelming to see so many new things in one place. On my third visit, I found the shakuhachi, which still provides that sense of excitement and discovery for me seven years later.

I could think of no better person in the world to help me express the combined influence of Japanese and American culture than Kana Dehara. She absolutely crushed it, playing every note to perfection.

The introduction to this piece is meant to depict the nature and mystique in Japan. The pink cherry blossom flowers fluttering towards the ground; the smell of tatami in an old Japanese house; the grandeur of standing in a temple built centuries ago.

Then, the fun of being an American in this playground of new and interesting things. I tried to use jazz phrasing to represent the idea of the American perspective, intertwined with phrasing borrowed from traditional shakuhachi music to represent the Japanese setting. In the improvised solo section at 4:45, for example, the idea was to alternate between using the Miyako Bushi scale and the blues scale, starting at 8-bar intervals, then 4-bar intervals, then finally mixing both into the same line before moving out onto a new harmonic section.

The conclusion? Go places. Immerse yourself in another culture and you’ll see a new perspective on life. It unlocks a treasure trove of inspiration, and leads you to better understand yourself and the world around you.

Special thanks to the Asian Cultural Council for giving me the opportunity to spend five months immersed in Japan, studying three styles of shakuhachi I would never have had the opportunity to learn otherwise. Please check out their website and the work they’re doing—it’s so important to have cross-cultural artists to facilitate international understanding, and no organization does that better than the ACC (https://www.asianculturalcouncil.org/).
