    Ying, Kwang-I 《Homage to Claude Debussy》,

    For Debussy 150-year birthday, all the pitch materials are from the letters of the title《Homage to Debussy》. The letters would be translated to digitals and then to pitches’ name. For example: the first letter of Debussy is a “d”, after turning to different side and angle, it could become a “q” which looks close to digital “9” . With the same idea, the word “Debussy(dEbussy)” could become digitals 9362554, then, following the pitch class concept, the pitch-set of “Debussy” would be A、Eb、Gb、D、F、F and E. Every pitch-set, of course, can be modulated, inverted or retrograded. Besides running notes, the parallelism writing is also happened in this piece.
