Programme Notes

《迴》所形容的是一個從遠處趨向自身然後忽然消失的能量。樂曲開首以一個單音引入,然後從單一逐漸擴散,在協調與不協調的和聲之間率動漸趨頻繁。在能量臨到的一刻,樂曲變得激動而活躍,樂器之間產生不同形式的對答。當能量積聚到最高峰時,傾刻間突然消失無踪,只遺下一絲餘音。

“Resonance from an Unreachable End” depicts a transmission of energy from a remote source. This work begins with a single note that gradually disperse into multiple layers. As the music progresses and lingers between consonance and dissonance, the energy level stacks up. In all of a sudden, the energy vanishes and only harmonics remain.
