- Itinerant

"Meguri" is not just a regular concert, but a live-music documentary about composers today and how their work has been influenced by their travels from and to Asia.  "Meguri," translated as "Itinerant," means to go somewhere and then return, and was inspired by Toru Takemitsu's piece with the same title, written to the memory of Japanese-American architect Isamu Noguchi.

Through "Meguri," audiences are introduced to new music through the use of real-time video.  Works by composers of Chinese, Indian, Japanese, American, and other origins are performed while simultaneously, in the background, movies are shown which present paintings, poetry, the inspiration behind the work, or other media which the composers themselves have provided.

In between the works, interviews with the composers are played to offer the audience a chance to see and hear the creator of the piece, and to hear, from the composers themselves, facts about their origin, their influences, and their views.

"Meguri" hopes to be a bridge between contemporary music and the audience, a direct link between creation and creator, and a glimpse into how a shrinking world affects our cultures.
