    LION DANCE Geomungo sol/ notice_May 2015

    The LION DANCE in his version was for Symphonic Orchestra with Korean instruments was ordered by the KNO and created in Seoul in June 2014.
    Following the way that I compressed many of my compositions into solo instruments, it was very natural for me to compressed LION DANCE to Geomungo solo piece particulary for the player Lee Jung-a very attentive to contemporary music process. I decomposed the traditional Korean LION theme in few elements that I had recomposed.

    After a short introduction and before the lion’s trip to the border of the Forest, the composition starts with 36 views of the young lion dancing in the Forest. During the trip, the lion goes accross the Wind’s turning room and later accross the cylindric space of the Changing Times. At the border of the Forest, the old lion interrogates the Univers and, aspirated in the echo of his questions, goes into the sky. Lion is the royalty emblem of my country Belgium.

    Thank you to all people contribued to this work, specialy the composer and Gayaguem master Mr Hwang Buyng-ki, the conductor Mr Won-Il and the Geomungo player Lee Jung-a.
