Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The inspiration of this work is about an imaginary disappearance of one's memory...... In terms of philosophical consideration, I would like to make use of the “Yin - Yang” philosophy.

    “Yin – Yang” is a traditional Eastern philosophy that reflects the inescapably interwined duality of natural phenomenon. The relationship, dependency and oppositions of two such poles are central to the way this work is being constructed.

    I will adopt this principle, together with western compositional technique, to make a fusion of East and West. Technically, this work consists of polyphonic texture mostly, and structurally it has a cadenza section in which I aim to unfold different timbral variety of piano.

    Many dynamic contrast for the sound-gesture is constructed and it will also be explored in this piece.
