Jun Yan's Recital + Celebration at Nihon Mura

James and I were (yet again) asked to perform Jun Yan's piece, this time for his Senior Recital. We've pretty much become his go-to violinist and cellist. Hahaha.

Anyways, Jun Yan was inspired by the 4 elements of nature (earth, fire, water & air) for the piece, "Back to Nature". It mostly involved atmospheric improvisations on the musicians' part, added textures were included in the form of Jun Yan's elaborately constructed electronic variations and bird flutes were used at the end of the piece.
