Construct on Light and Shadow


Construct on light and shadow


Everything in the universe must have firmness and tenderness. Therefore, harmony exists.


Light can symbolize firmness, and shadow can symbolize tenderness. Light and shadow is a contrast in harmony.


I respectively use two kinds of woodwinds and strings: flute and clarinet, cello and harp. With the combination of sound, firmness and tenderness are demonstrated. Using the language of modern music, and mixing spatial notation and traditional notation, I attempt to display respective timbre, register, and performing technique of musical instruments and to mix musical instruments of different types on sound expression at the same time. This piece enables performers to fully exhibit the techniques of musical instruments. The element of rhythm also produces variable musical dispositions, making music more interesting and lively.
