Notes on this piece

Hoshi no koe is inspired by the eponymous drama written by Makoto Shinkai. It follows the lives of two characters who get separated once one of them is sent to space. The two continue to communicate across space using e-mail on their mobile telephones. As the the first character travels deeper into space, messages take increasingly longer to reach the other on Earth, and the time-lag of their correspondence eventually spans years.

This piece follows the ideas developed by Shinkai about time, distance, and the lack of human interaction. The cello is isolated from the rest of the quartet. It is only after a long journey that it is reunited for a short period of time with the others. After this brief, bittersweet reunion the cello is slowly swept away from the others yet again. A series of flashbacks and distant memories bring the quartet together again in their ephemeral unity.
