in four movements | 四樂章
I: Nature | 樸
II: Root | 源
III: Vigour | 蒼
IV: Cypresses Triptych 漢柏三匝
(2022 | 18')
Invited by the Hong Kong Museum of Art, this composition is made particularly to respond to the thematic masterpiece
“A sketch of Chinese cypresses, the original draft” at the “Wu Guanzhong: Sketching Vitality” exhibition.
The composition is premiered through its sound installation at the gallery.
The composer performed, recorded, and mixed the performance himself.
The three movements are independent, yet by superimposition they form a greater work as its fourth movement.
Its form is inspired by intertwinement and multi-perspective of "A Sketch of Chinese Cypresses, the Original Draft",
where Wu Guanzhong depicted the aged beauty and the vitality of nature of these ancient cypresses.
