A karesansui is a Japanese rock garden which is an enclosed shallow sandbox containing sand, gravel and rocks. The main elements are rocks and sand, with the sea symbolized not by water but by sand raked in patterns that suggest rippling water. This short work, for 6 clarinets and optional percussion, is peaceful, reflective and accessible to audiences. The major pentatonic scale is used as the basis for this composition which creates an interesting texture and evokes the sound of an ancient Japanese folk song.
