This improvisational work-in-progress explored Wada’s application of timbre and resonance aspects of composition in various objects. The instrument played in the piece—which had previously been used in Adapted Bagpipe series from 1978—was a large floor-based bagpipe made of cane-reeds that could produce fine tolerances of the intervals.
