    “Unlimited One”: In the Buddhist classic Weimo Sutra, there is a question: "must be as big as high and as small as mustard seeds. Should mustard seeds enter the mountains of Xumishan?" This controversial statement has made unlimited development in the construction of freehand landscape park in the south of the Yangtze River. When the composer travels in Suzhou garden, she feels that the gardener moves to change shape, and with each change of design technique, the shape, quality and body potential of the same landscape are presented in many ways in the eyes of the viewer, and the world is in the middle of mustard millet rice. The frame conception of the works all comes from the architectural perception of Suzhou gardens. In the aspect of music material, the composer draws lessons from the artistic characteristics of "Li tune", the ups and downs of rapid transformation, the rotating method of wave circle, and its unique use of "narrow cavity sound" and "overlapping character", which run through the works, trying to present the aesthetic temperament of contemporary music culture to the charm of traditional art.
