Rambling (蔓生): for Flute, Clarinet, Trombone, and Double Bass (2012)

performed by Eco Ensemble, May 2013, Berkeley New Music Project (Berkeley, CA, USA)

Program Note:

The inspiration of this piece comes from rambling plants, which to me are symbolic of vitality, with their long shoots putting out, growing, and extending over walls or other plants. Through interweaving and mixing lines of different parts as well as developing and transforming the materials, I attempt to represent the process of the plant spouting, getting exuberant, blooming, and then withering and fading. My ultimate end is to create a rambling atmosphere in music.


此曲的原始意念來自蔓生植物,它們枝幹細長,攀附而生,易於延展伸長,極具生命力。我想透過各聲部線條的交織混合與素材的發展變化,表達植物從萌發茁壯、蔓延至盛放、而又凋零的過程,也希望這些聲音及能量的發展與消長,能顯示出一種音樂的蔓生現象。
