This piece takes its title from the eponymous short story by Haruki Murakami. The story is about searching for something seemingly impossible to find, and not knowing even where to start. My piece is about searching— the aspiration, resignation, patience, determination, waiting. Composing sometimes gives me the feeling that I am trying to uncover something lost, without even knowing what or where.
