Life takes its inspiration from a Zen Buddhist koan. The function of a koan, or riddle, is to test one's resolve in the face of doubt, the latter born from overdependence on worldly logic (think "What is the sound of one hand clapping?). The goal is not to "solve" but to become the riddle. In this particular koan, a monk and his master discuss the meaning of life, and through his usual array of diverse instruments and singing (here entirely in Japanese), Micus does just that. He becomes what he performs. Distinct to the riddle of life is its elliptical reasoning: it begins and ends with the same answer. Micus chooses to express this distillation by moving from complex to barest arrangement.

Micus listeners will know many of the instruments through which he speaks: Bavarian zithers, sho (Japanese mouth organ), Thai singing bowls, nay, Tibetan chimes and cymbals, and the sarangi-like dilruba. For Life he adds to his palette the maung (Burmese gongs) and the bagana, an Ethiopian lyre that produces a uniquely entrancing buzz by way of leather strips threaded between its strings.--Tyran Grillo
