About the piece:
In Japan, Zen monks and haiku poets have a long tradition of reciting a poem as the final words to a dying person. The texts that form the basis of Katsu! are comprised of various death poems from the 16th to the 20th century. The word «katsu» is an expression uttered at the moment one encounters a deeper level of awareness, and a new state of consciousness or understanding is achieved. The expression is uttered as a loud cry. In Norwegian, or English, the expression «eureka» best describes this state of sudden awareness.

To be published soon by Norsk Musikforlag.
