for Reed Quintet, 8mins
Premiered – Splinter Reed, Boston University Concert Hall, November 2019
The process of making this piece is as much a part of the documentation of a recent political crisis in Hong Kong itself. In this process, a variety of data sources are analyzed and interpreted to offer a more expansive view of this incident that is still on-going. In this work, data is transformed into different sonic parameters, which shaped a microcosmic soundscape. The assignation and selection of the parameters not only imbue meanings to the data but also correspond and determine how the piece ends.
