  • Tanaka is expressing the natural organic substances that we see flowing using iron forging techniques with fire and hammer. The Japanese title of this piece “Hikumo” is from the word “Hi” = fire from the iron forging process and “Kumo” = cloud like floating substance or state. The sound of Hikumo also synchronizes with the sound and feel of this piece.
