Description:
Four Koans is an exploration of the Zen Buddhist koan concept in a musical context (perhaps the widest known koan—poorly translated—is “what is the sound of one hand clapping?”). I have always loved these irrational statements, stories, and questions designed to foil the logical mind and allow for an intuitive and spontaneous type of comprehension. I have composed these four short movements with the aim of stimulating similar mental faculties in the performers and listeners.
