Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Iceberg, to me, is arrogant and majestic, yet it is such a fragile object. However, when it falls, it is just a metamorphosis of ways of existence.
    Impressed by the character and the imagination towards it, the composer depicts the sounds, image and emotion of a fantasy of a melting and collapsing iceberg.

    冰山給人感覺冷傲及莊嚴,但自身卻是何等脆弱,然而儘管它怎樣崩塌,也只是轉換另一種生存的模式。
    因著冰山的特性給對它的想象,作曲家把幻想中的冰山融化及崩塌過程中的聲音、視覺及感覺呈現出來。
