This rare intensive workshop for music professionals and composers focuses on three gagaku instruments made of bamboo-shō, hichiriki and ryūteki-and their particular pitches, scales and playing techniques. Offering hands-on opportunities to work with these instruments, the workshop is led by master musicians Ko Ishikawa, Hitomi Nakamura and Takeshi Sasamoto from Japan, with guest composers Mamoru Fujieda, Gene Coleman, Ken Ueno and Carlos Sanchez-Guttierez.
