William Winant, gongs, tam-tam

Peter Garland:

Moon Viewing Music (Inscrutable Stillness Studies #1)
1 Living alone in the woods ... (Ryōkan)
2 Even more so ... (Buson)
3 Only the moon ... (Saigyō)
4 As I look at the moon ... (Saigyō)
5 When I die ... (Saigyō)
6 I cleansed the mirror ... (Renseki)

Moon Viewing Music is a quiet, sparse, introspective six-movement work for three large Thai-style gongs and large tam-tam, performed by the celebrated new-music percussionist William Winant.

Garland is a long-time associate of Cold Blue Music; his music has appeared on six of the label's previous CDs.

Recorded in August 2017 at Architecture, Los Angeles, California, USA
