Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Why can a Plane fly in the sky? This piece is musical information translated how to fly a Propeller Plane in the sky. The important thing is Spiral Air, to express I compose from small Spiral Sound which gone up and down glissando notes, to big Spiral Sound which rotated the huge Sound Propeller by cymbals on the entire first floor, and which flown invisible Sound Plane from the stage to the second floor. In addition, I concentrate to make sound texture as light as possible, by Dots harmony on many staccatos and by Airy contemporary playing techniques. (rev. 2018)
