Sea Goddess is taken from Japanese mythology, commissioned by the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force Oominato Band, premiering on February 9, 2013. The Sea Goddess (Torinoiwakusufunenokami) is one of many deities born of Izanagi-no-Mikoto and Izanami-no-Mikoto, creators of the Japanese isles. It is also a boat for the goddess that flies in the sky and sails in ocean. It's said that the boat sails like a bird, and the camphor wood used in the boat is rock-hard. That boat figure adorns popular prayer cards promoting inspired and transformational travel in the real and metaphysical sense.
Featuring appealing Japanese modalities and exciting rhythms, the work is constructed in five segments.
