The catastrophe of Fukushima in March 2011 prompted Sandeep Bhagwati to spontaneously write 17 haiku compositions as musical elegies - in memory of the victims, but also as a "meditation on the thin skin of our civilization on this restless planet" (Bhagwati). 
This edition presents 5 complete versions of the Miyagi Haikus in different instrumentations.
It includes 5 cycles of poems by Yoko Tawada, Yang Lian, Monika Rinck, Ranjit Hoskote, and Christian Filips written in response to these recordings.
