The Tokyo Trilogy – a set of “songs” taking its form from classic Japanese origins and updated into the present milieu. Included are: THE KANTOCLES: One Hundred Verses by One Hundred Shibuyan Sages (based on the Ogura Hyakunin Isshu); THE FORTY-EIGHT DEVOTIONS: The Warrior Workbook (based on abstractions from the Hagakure); and SONGS FROM THE ATOMIC AISLES: Thirty-six Views of the Great Roarhood (based on Hokusai’s Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji).
