It doit y avoir absolument éternité en musique: 我作曲故我在 – I compose; therefore I am.

《渡月之渚》,為弦樂團
“…through drifting moons”, for string ensemble
(2011)

首演:2012年2月1日@ UCSD CPMC Concert Hall
演出者:Palimpsest Ensemble
指揮:Steven Schick
錄音師:Josef Kucera

英文官方版曲解:

The string ensemble is set into two groups, joining the same or a similar spectral field, coloring and responding to each other.  When sketching this work, I was inspired by Yang Mu’s poem, “from the bell resonance in a village”.  Therefore I combined the spectra of an F# tubular bell and a Tibetan singing bowl as the primary spectral field throughout the piece.  The bell’s color reflects the inner voices of our mind, and the “moons” in the title symbolizes time that passes as a dream-like stream.  Everything is drifting: lights, shadows, sounds, thoughts, dreams, and life.

個人補充:

當初接這個委託案是事先曉得同場演出曲目另有梁雷與Bartok的作品,所以編制是以Bartok作品為基礎被要求的,可以選擇加或不加擊樂與鍵盤,因為我不想寫跟Bartok一樣的編制,便只選了弦樂團的部分。(有趣的是,我連首弦樂四重奏之類的小編制都沒寫過,大學時的作品當成是習作所以不算,而之前曾經幾度要寫也都因遇到瓶頸放棄,結果終於要寫只有弦樂的作品了竟然是個十八人的弦樂團…)

寫這首曲子時剛好看了一次月全食,便決心要將它掺入音樂的一部分。但構思時一面也擔心部分的結構或材料與前一首作品過於接近,因此在交稿前兩三個星期,狠下今來將結構整個重新規劃,成為最終成品的九分鐘版本。

這兩年持續在音色與配器法上耕耘,所以算起來已經連續四、五年都在做同一件事了。這樣也好,寫論文時會單純許多。
