Program note

“There was such a place, in front of the tree holes, where those people speak.”

This was the first image that came to my head when I started to write this piece. In this piece, I tried to merge the initial intuition, instrumental practice, and structure into one single space. Music starts with a meaningless echo, which then led to a simple material, a mechanical image, which spreads throughout the piece under the lead of the different subtle changes between the two layers.
