Japan has countless ghosts, some of them are wind-and air-ghosts. Most of them are benign. To appear in our world they need special places to stay in. These could be trees or special rock formations or pipes – even flutes could serve as such a place.
These special places are called Yorishiro.
This piece is written for an open-hold flute with a B-foot. Extended techniques include singing and playing, wind sound, bisbigliando, pizzicato, key click, and slap tongue.
