Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Cloud is an aerosol comprising flowing water vapor and dust, which surrounds and protects the tiny earth in the vast cosmic sky. It is dynamic and diversified. Not only reflecting existing splendid pictures known to the human beings, but also inspiring our boundless imaginations in the future. The landscape of cloud, or the cloud with landscape is a musical work full of sounds of clouds and feelings of the landscape; moreover, the composer wants to express his own emotions over the landscape of cloud.This work composed of three movements – Floating Cloud, Voice of Mountain and Affection on Water. The composer uses skills as serial-music, pitch-class set, timbre texture and multi-structure to show his multidimensional awareness of dynamic status, and expresses his own feelings by abstracting the nature.
