Song cycle for solo baritone and orchestra. Duration: 12 minutes. "This is the orchestral version of a piece which was originally written for baritone and piano. This piece consists of six songs, all created using a completely different composing method, as if there were six different worlds folded into one. I recorded my friend reciting the text of some of the songs. I then analysed the tiny inflections of the voice reading out the text. Expanding the intervals of the speech pattern, I created the melody for the baritone. By contrast, some songs are composed completely freely." - Dai Fujikura, liner notes from "my letter to the world," New Focus Recordings (2016)
