Writing Way to the other shore has been a way of searching a mythological place, where reality and imagination are emerged into a flow of sound. This work was inspired by an experience of visiting a Taosim temple, where believers weave together an intricate pattern of monologue, dialogue and chanting.
In this piece, all 13 instruments have been treated like a “silk and bamboo” ensemble in the Chinese tradition music, and the music changing gradually from pureness and subtle changes to the magnification through the musical process.
