**a note about track #4:
'Cut Down' was written in the 90's for a large Dance Company in Japan. The theme was "Kaze" which means wind. But because of my involvement as the commissioned composer and my work on shakuhachi (Japanese Bamboo Flute),"Bamboo" also became a theme. Maybe it was the wind blowing through the bamboo Groves. This melody was reflective of the destruction of these Groves for deforestation. To bring forward the feeling of loss and the need to protect. (SC)
