Story

"Everything is Alive" is the third movement from my 1st world fusion string quartet "Sky Mirror" which was awarded the Shakuhachi Chamber Music International Prize 2008. The instrumentation is shakuhachi, string quartet and electric guitar with effects. It was written in three weeks in Feb 2008 on a deadline for a composition contest that was being held in Australia, the purpose of which was to write pieces to expand the repertoire for the shakuhachi, setting the instrument in a classical chamber group. As part of the prize package it was performed and recorded in Melbourne Australia in December 2008.
