Kaeru

“Kaeru” means frog in Japanese. The piece was inspired by both the real world as well as Eri’s imaginary aquatic world. The piece aims to capture the playful, waterside adventures of small creatures. Take a little break, and enjoy this cute little fantasy world that may exist somewhere around you.

Crossing Reality

composed by Eri Chichibu (2018)

Sometime this past summer I started working on a composition in that place between sleep and wakefulness. The process itself became an inspiration for the piece—reality and fantasy, fact and memory, experience and imagination, chaos and release... They appear to be polar opposites, but everything swirls and crosses in the mind, allowing us to experience these ideas as our own reality.

dreams of the wind

composed by Eri Chichibu (2017)

Does wind have a mind? Does it dream?

Where does it want to go? Whom does it want to see?

What if I were wind..? 

What if you were wind..?
