Suppa, n'est-ce pas?

This music is conceived by "Suppa" from Japanese Sengoku period ("Warring States period"). "Suppa" is bandit who spies and in the later period, it evolves into "Shinobi" and that famous "Ninja". Clarinet and Saxophone represent "Suppa". In the beginning, these 2 players would play the instruments hiding behind the partition set also behind the cellist and they play the noises completely simultaneously with the cello. Gradually they tried to derogate the music, but by gesture of Cellist, their sound remains the noise. After a while, noticed the incident, the cellist pops the paper popper. Then these two players appear from behind the partition. The piece ends with session where the sounds collision with double stop and Bartok pizzicato takes place.
