Program Notes

Sea Goddess is taken from Japanese mythology. The Sea Goddess (Torinoiwakusufunenokami) is one of many deities born of Izanagi-no-Mikoto and Izanami-no-Mikoto, creators of the Japanese isles. It is also a boat for the goddess that flies in the sky and sails in the ocean. It’s said that the boat sails like a bird, and the camphor wood used in the boat is rock hard. That boat figure adorns popular prayer cards, promoting inspired and transformational travel in the real and metaphysical sense.

Featuring appealing Japanese modalities and exciting rhythms, the work is constructed in five segments.

The smaller version can be played by 24 people, so it would be great if small bands would be interested in the future.

Sea Goddess(Larger Version) was commissioned by the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force Band OMINATO, premiering on February 9, 2013.
