Listen to an audio clip

Ripples was written for Reiko Manabe, who recorded it for the hibari project. It is a small gesture of compassion in response to the tragic events surrounding the earthquake and tsunami that struck Northern Japan on March 11, 2011. I am awed and humbled by the strength and courage of the people who have met the many challenges facing them with grace.
