gNAGARE for Violin and Pianoh was written in 2001 and revised in 2005.
This is description written by Daisuke Terauchi, about gNAGAREh.
Apart from the coda this entire composition is written in the same consistent manner throughout. Over the course of the composition the texture changes due to shifts in the range and density of the two instrumental lines. However, these changes are gradual and do not have a clear borderline.
If a texture changes suddenly, we can imagine that a listenerfs perception changes at that instant too. However, in the case of this piece, it is not my intention to direct the listenerfs attention to specific points of change.
Rather I am interested in allowing some ambiguity in terms of how subtle changes over time are perceived by each individual listener. I learned about listening perception by observing my own listening practices in my musical experiences and daily life. This piece is written based on my interest in how a listener's perceptions change over time.
