Notes

  • Program notes: 

    This piece took spine of the world Himalaya as the theme, carrying forward the magnificence and strength of its heroic spirit as well as exploring the mystery and tenacity of its life miracle. The work have a strong flavor of musical language of the Tibetan ethic group, interweaving the episode of sound and melody. As chorus, although without the traditional tonal center, the sustainability of single tone material and certain sound resembling a sort of gravitation force run through the whole piece.
    The content of the lyric does not possess the continuous description of words and phrase but only separate words which take after the ancient language, such as sun(ni ma), moon (da wa) or the pronunciation of Tibetan letters : ga, ka, a, da, ta, na, scattering into the surroundings of the centre Himalaya and symbolizing the meaning of nature and human civilization.
