In the Japanese language the word yahari means: in spite of, also (too), still (as before), even so (nonetheless), as expected (of course). Such apparent contradictions of meaning remind me of the challenging nature of Zen postulates such as the koan. With Yahari I wanted to explore states of consciousness resulting from the resonance of an “intangible”, almost “transparent” sonic dimension.

The world premiere of Yahari took place on 13th November 2017 in the Chamber Music Hall of the Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst, Stuttgart, and was performed by Johannes Monno.
