Misato Mochizuki offers a kaleidoscope of styles from modern Western tradition plus her Asian focus on breath, the mind, our living landscape and its components. The first movement presents the relationship between the three-dimensional world and an invisible world, the second is water, and the third the most subtle element of all, air, leading to the invisible, breathing fire into the body. Yet all elements mingle, with air blending Ether and Earth.
