Polarized Sky

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku290 – Polarized Sky

     polarized sky
     the mixed melodies
     of twilight birds

The pen name “an’ya” loosely translates into “a peaceful surprise light in the moonless night”. Though nowadays she writes mostly tanka, in 2011 an’ya was voted one of the top ten haiku poets in the world by Simply Haiku.

I had never heard of tanka until reading about an’ya. In response I decided to form my piece in the shape of a musical tanka, which I decided to be a repeated set of 5, 7, 5, 7, and 7 beats per measure.

Polarized Sky was written for Flute, Clarinet, Horn, Trombone, Violin, Viola, Cello, and String Bass.
