The title comes from a poem of American poet Gary Snyder, a great scholar of Asian poetry and spirituality. The verse goes “Rustle and shimmer of icy creek waters”. Snyder, who studied ancient Japanese and Chinese poetry, is constantly inspired by nature. It is the rhythm of Snyder’s poem and the visual and auditive images triggered by it which inspired the writing of this piece.
Rustle and Shimer, for Chinese bamboo flute, percussion and electroacoustic layers, is dedicated to its two performers, LI Yue and Thierry MIROGLIO.
First performance : Beijing, Musicacoustica festival, 22 October 2019.
