Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The shapes and textures of materials such as metal, stone and wood will change under certain external forces. The sense of volume about the material will also alter along with the changes in shape and texture. This work deforms Sichuan folk song “the Sun Comes out with Jubilance” by imposing forces onto the sound materials of the song through the means of extending, rotating, twisting and squeezing, which produces variations in texture and a new tension in music.
