Rock Garden

石の庭 Ishi no Niwa (Rock Garden) by Hikaru Sawai (1994)
3 Kotos & 2 Bass Kotos

This piece is conscious of typical structures in rock music. Each part can be considered a solo as well as being part of an ensemble. Similarly, each part contains elements of lead, backing and rhythm sections. The flow of music repetitively moves between the unification and subsequent dispersion of the parts through harmony and rhythmic interaction.
