Misato Mochizuki is the leading Japanese composer of the younger generation.
“I think that everyone, at least once in his or her life, has experienced anticipatory or telepathic perceptions. My trilogy Etheric Blueprint (2002–2006) is an observation of a possible cause of such a sensation: an invisible energy that surrounds us, connecting us with nature and space. In order to lend expression to this investigation, music and light seemed to me to be ideal: liberated from physicality and the word, they intensively stimulate our powers of imagination, evoking forgotten memories or new emotions by occasionally creating unexpected connections.”
The Etheric Blueprint Trilogy is completed with two shô solo pieces. Mayumi Miyata has selected two ancient preludes from the six shô solo pieces in gagaku: Banshikicho no choshi symbolises winter, water, the north and blackness; Sojo no choshi afterwards symbolises spring, wood, the east and blue.
The sound of the shô is regarded as 'light from the sky' in which the instrument is hinted at like an ethereal impression (etheric blueprint).
