The Shadow is What We Hear is a piece for solo shakuhachi with electronic music that comprises improvisational and notated elements. Musical shadows haunt our ears even when the tones are no longer there. They linger, creating shadows in our ears and our minds, even in silence. This piece explores these “musical shadows” by blurring the space between performers and the audience.
