The first experiment in a collaboration between Brent Dixon and violinist Rachel See.
Rachel recorded a series of brief musical phrases on violin. Each was unrehearsed, unrelated, improvised on the spot, recorded at 120 BPM, and in the key of E minor. "Even if you feel like you made a mistake, keep it," was part of the game.
She sent me a folder with the collection of recorded phrases, about 20 in all. I used editing software to construct selections into a layered composition, adding the cello for some bass progression and flow.
The result is a composition by both of us and neither of us.
"Komorebi" is a Japanese word for when sunlight filters through the trees - the interplay between the light and the leaves.
