Brush-Stroke

Brush-Stroke

for small orchestra


  • Instrumentation: small orchestra
  • Edition: performance material

 
Description
"The title Brush-Stroke reveals the influence of Chinese calligraphy on my music, in particular, the "slender gold script" by Emperor Hui-tsung (1082-1135) and the "wild cursive script" by Monk Huai-Su (ca.735-ca.799). In this work, I tried to develop an idea that I call "One-Note-Polyphony." This concept is inspired by my sonogram analysis of the music of the ancient Chinese seven-string zither, the guqin. Each single note functions as an "intersection" where various musical dimensions can be accessed. My interest lies in the potential for perceptible timbral transformation through the varying possibilities of instrumental re-synthesis on these single notes."
