The Dragon’s Song
The Dragon’s Song is inspired by the medieval fantasy world where dragons hold a primal place. Created in North America, where winter is a way of life, this dragon does not breathe fire, but rather ice. The sound produced by this instrument magically echoes, reminiscent of a cold winter night in Quebec where the full moon shines.

This piece is tuned in a pentatonic Indo-Java and Bali key called “pelog”. It is one of the two keys used in traditional Indonesian ensembles. I chose this mode because it allows a harmonious play, regardless of the skill of the player.
