Program Notes:

Sandstone is created over long periods of time by sediment of sand.  Sandstones are something I enjoyed making last summer from the white sand in Diani Beach, which quickly and easily fell apart. 

There is a relationship to each of these when working with these ancient Korean instruments and melodies for the past few years, with specific reference to Chun Hyang Ga-Jajin Sarang ga, Dan Ga-Sa Cheol Ga and Bangataryeong Gangsanje Simcheongga.

This score uses a mix of Korean and Western instrumental embellishment techniques
