2004 release. One string quartet piece, recorded 2002, performed by the Arditti String Quartet at the Inventionen 2002 festival. Powerful, abstract, atmospheric. Sei-Jaku is one way of pronouncing the two characters of the title in Japanese. They stand for "Tarnished" and "Star." The other pronunciation "Sabita Boshi" points to a term of central importance in Japanese aesthetics: "Sabi." Although "Sabi" could be translated as "Tarnished," its meaning is not sufficiently represented by the English word.
