Product details

The sweet light of day was composed for the 'Ensemblinx' Australia - Japan Project at the request of virtuoso clarinetist Robert Schubert. The work draws on the sound world, ritual and mysticism of the sacred 'Shinto' music of Japan. The style of this music is solemn, slow and ambient. The main voice is pure with little vibrato and is often echoed by the accompanying instruments. For this work the 'oshikiho' scale is used which is the 3rd mode of the 'Togako' system. " The traditional origin of 'Shinto ' music is the obscene dance performed by the goddess Ama no Uzume no Mikoto before the door of the Rock Cave of Heaven to entice out the sun goddess, who is hiding her light from the world and causing the crops to fail" (New Grove).
