This work is a combination of video and electronic music class works, trying to seize the world’s imprint, through the voice, and the screen, to express the memories of the memories of the past and sentiment. Sound material comes from the Matouqin and electronic music, through the sound sampling, processing, deformation, and virtual processing of voices, with the imaginary picture, to show a monologue of the imprinting. That is a kind of voice from the heart, as traces of the years left in our memory.

“Five Stanzas of Plum-blossoms”

In ancient Chinese literature, plum flower and Guqin, a plucked instrument, represent an essential part of gentleman-characters. This piece is inspired by an ancient music piece by  Hengyi of the Jin Dynasty that depicts a gentleman’s moral integrity and resolution. During the performance, the Guqin is played using various fingering techniques different from those used on western instruments, such as flicking, sliding and water-drop-sounding tremolo plucking.
