Takemitsu's desire to express thoughts in prose as well as music, not typical of Japanese composers until recently, is more frequently associated with nineteenth-century European composers. With little interest in program music, Takemitsu does not believe that words explain the essence of music. Words are important in his own compositional technique, however, and his interest in writing is certainly more than casual. Words stimulate his imagination and give rise literally to images that in turn activate his sensibilities in his search for sound, the real essence of music
