Haruka and Rika Fujii consider this piece to be one of the greatest works in the percussion repertoire. The piece was inspired by the heavenly scenery with angels in the fresco painting of the Dun-Huang cave in China. The physicality of this piece depicts “Hiten”, hovering angels found in Zen Buddhism, and the virtuosic music represents the word “Seido,” the energy of living. Written for the Fujii sisters’ mother Mutsuko Fujii, a marimbist and a pioneer of Japanese modern percussion, it can be heard on the family’s CD Hiten Seido along with other representative works of Maki Ishii’s percussion music.
