Youki was the first work I composed after moving to Kushiro, a city located at the Eastern Hokkaido (Northern Japan). Despite the fact that Kushiro is the fourth biggest city in Hokkaido, it is a fairly quiet and not that densely populated place. The quiet lifestyle combined with the sense of isolation due to the city’s location surrounded by the ocean and the biggest marshland in Japan, had a significant effect on the music I composed during that period.


First performance: 15 November 2013, Ekali Club, Athens, Evgenia Votanopoulou, piano.
