Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This work is a revised version of two works.
    The first one is "DNA" for violin solo (composed 2015). The first three minutes of this composition consist of only four pitches: the open G-string, A flat on the D-string, F sharp on the A-string and F on the E-string. These four pitches are repeated while changing their combination and rhythm patterns. In the second half, the pitches are connected by "helical" strands of sixteenth notes.
    The second original piece is "Imprisonment" for String Quartet (2016), which is a revised version of "DNA" for solo violin. I also revised the title to reflect my feeling that all creatures are as though imprisoned by their DNA chain. Those who are imprisoned are restricted their liberty and their belongings, just as this work is "imprisoned" by its limited range of notes.
