RETRANSLATED is the practical component of my Doctoral research at Royal Holloway, University of London. The project seeks to explore and develop timbral possibilities provided to the flautist by the Kingma system flute by looking at the classical Honkyoku repertoire of the Shakuhachi before applying these techniques to new works in collaboration with composers to create a new body of Kingma system specific repertoire.

The first stage of the project saw the transcription of two works for Shakuhachi performed by Dr Kiku Day which can be viewed below. The techniques and fingerings derived from these transcriptions formed the basis of the works created in collaboration during RETRANSLATED.
