Daily Yinz – Devon Osamu Tipp and Sarah Alice Steranka – Tokeru Reibo – 溶ける鈴慕

“Tokeru Reibo – 溶ける鈴慕,” translated as “Yearning For The Molten Bell,” is an experimental flute and piccolo piece composed by Devon Osamu Tipp and performed by Sarah Alice Steranka.

The piece, whose sounds are meant to embody the process of melting a silver bell–still ringing–in a crucible, consists of layers of droning and fluttering flute and piccolo, which gradually increase in intensity before subsiding into an uneasy equilibrium. Over the course of twelve minutes, piercing tones become dissonant cascades become peals of birdsong become murky murmurs, the disparate movements all contributing to a larger whole.
