Commissioned by the renowned percussionist Tomoko Terada.

“I just want to hit, hit and hit!”

This is what I was told when asked to write a piece for Terada-san. Her passion ignited a clear image of a percussion soloist violently performing like a thunder god. It is rare for me to decide on a title during the compositional process, but in this case, I already knew there were no themes more suitable than that of “Raijin, Thunder God”.

The introduction reflects a quiet, peaceful dawn. Additional layers are added as the music progresses towards the main body of the piece. At that time the tempo continuously accelerates towards a point of no return, leading up to the climax of the work. Then, everything collapses. There is a subtle restatement of the introduction before the tempo again increases, featuring the soloist’s improvisational skills.
