Wenchen Qin: “Across the Skies”

“’Across the skies’ is characterised by a feeling of free and unforced imagination. At the beginning of the composition the pipa plays in an irregular rhythm through ‘sweeping’ overtones. At the same time, several string instruments play long, soft tones that result in an echo effect on the overtone chords of the pipa, whilst the other strings strengthen the overtone effect of the pipa. A pale acoustic segment repeatedly appears throughout the entire composition; it consists of diatonic scales and creates an impression of religiosity. The piece concludes with a retrospect of dreams.”

(Wenchen Qin)
