A composition for percussion and two daxophones — bowed wood instruments with questionable pitch and the most variable timbre. Renku No. 1 plays with the vocal qualities of the daxophone through the exploration of a Japanese collaborative poetry form where poets take turns adding haiku stanzas.

The haiku heard here is from Matsuo Bashō.
