Isaan is an original composition commissioned by the HD Duo. Isaan (or Isan) is the Northeastern region of Thailand where the composer’s grandparents lived. The work is inspired by the childhood memories of places and the music of the region. The impression of Khaen, a Northeastern free-reed instrument, can be heard in a few sections, though the composer did not use any specific quotations from the Northeast. The pentatonic scale, however, is used throughout the piece.
