A chamber ensemble piece dedicated to the victims and survivors of the March 2011 Japan earthquakes and tsunami. Performed by musicians of the Manhattan Contemporary Chamber Ensemble, March 15, 2013 at Symphony Space, New York City. The tune for the closing section (after the 'clouds part' at c. 6:40) is completely original (and sincere), but intended to sound as if you might have heard it before on a J-Pop album - or in a Hayao Miyazaki / Joe Hisaishi film ("Spirited Away", "Castle in the Sky", "Princess Mononoke", "Howl's Moving Castle", etc.) but you can't quite put your finger on it . . .
