Notes

  • Program notes: 

    In the remote area of South China, people live in small villages surrounded by mountains, they always sing in a very free way to communicate with people from far away. They also tend to sing as a way to express their inner feelings. The vocal sounds echoes back and forth in the valley where the mountains are at different heights, Songs in the Valley was inspired by the way of people singing, and the composer aimed to create an immersive soundscape of that space.
