    NCPA Young Composer Programme

    香港六合彩出码最快的网站 www.wthhs.tw Launched and organized by China NCPA, the NCPA Young Composers Programme seeks and selects orchestral pieces by young Chinese composers both at home and abroad. Outstanding works chosen from the contest will be performed by professional orchestras, and winners will receive commission contracts from the NCPA . The NCPA Young Composers Programme is committed to three main purposes:

    Firstly to advance and prosper the musical composition in China today; to encourage and support emerging young Chinese composers to compose new pieces, show their talents and realize their artistic dreams; and thereafter to bring promising young composers to the fore.

    Secondly to enhance the influence and improve the reputation of new Chinese musical compositions, to regularize their performances, and thereafter to promote promising new works.

    Thirdly to explore the aesthetic principles of contemporary musical composition in China, to encourage young composers to carry out bold experimentation and active innovation so as to leave Chinese imprints on the map of contemporary musical composition.

    国家大剧院青年作曲家计划首席评审专家陈其钢致辞

    A message from Chen Qigang, principal juror of the NCPA Young Composer Programme

    Practice makes perfection in any discipline, especially in the arts. For any aspiring composer, in addition to continuous studies and carrying out compositional work, it is absolutely crucial to hear their works realized in live performances, in order to really perceive their own music as how it was intended to sound. Without this experience of hearing oneself, even great talents cannot easily accomplish what they aspire to. This is the universal problem-one of luxury-faced by all young composers, because with assembling a full-sized symphony orchestra to rehearse and perform any newly composed work for its creator to hear it, the costs involved can be prohibitive. And very few organizations are resourceful, or willing, enough to invest in unknown composers in this way. In such a world, young composers in China would have faced a very bleak future indeed, with opportunities to hear their music properly performed almost non-existent.

    I would therefore like to express my most heart-felt gratitude towards NCPA for launching the Young Composer Programme with such dedication. This is not something that would immediately produce any material returns, but absolutely vital to the longevity of music itself. I would also like to express my sincere thanks to all the performers and audience members, who have extended their invaluable support to these young composers. I do hope that the programme will continue and flourish in years to come. It is exciting that the Programme has obtained more and more attention from international professional music institutes from its establishment. As a result, the finalists can not only acquire NCPA's commission, but also have the access to performing or composing in other countries.

    The NCPA Young Composer Programme is perceived as an infrastructure project for orchestral composition in China. Its mission is not merely to produce several outstanding pieces of music. More importantly, it gives young composers opportunities to listen to their own works during the selection and performance process. Through this project, these young musicians will gain experience, be inspired, learn to persevere, and build their future career from this point on. We do not expect any of these works to represent perfection, but we do ask that you treat these young people like your own children, giving them support, affection, understanding, and criticism where it is due, for they are the future of music for China.

    NCPA Young Composer Programme has a history of eight years. According to some students, it has gradually become a symbol of Chinese young composers' career and a dream inside their hearts. It is indeed NCPA's initial expectation when launched at the beginning. Let's join hands to achieve the dream of the young composers and make joint efforts to prosper the Programme.

    • The Vanishing River Wang Zhiyi

      Born in 1980, Wang Zhiyi is an emerging young composer from China. Being featured in many significant events, Wang's music works established his reputation in both academic and commercial music industries.

      Born in 1980, Wang Zhiyi is an emerging young composer from China. Being featured in many significant events, Wang's music works established his reputation in both academic and commercial music industries.

      As one of the core members in the music creative team of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, Wang composed various music works for the Opening Ceremony, including Fanfare for the Ceremony, the works of orchestration: the theme song You and Me , duet song Dream of the Five Rings, Ritual Music, and Lighting of the Olympic Cauldron.

      Before joining the Olympic music creative team, Shanghai Opera House appointed Wang as the Composer-in-Residence (2006 – 2008). During this time, he accomplished a great number of works, and Mr. Zhang Guoyong, President of the Shanghai Opera House praised him as "an excellent skillful composer".

      Wang has received numerous awards and honors, including the top prize in the Premio Franz Liszt International Competition for Composers, honor certificate awarded by Beijing Olympic Organizing Committee, laureate of Grawemeyer Fellowship, etc. His works have been performed by many prestigious orchestras, ensembles and soloists.

      Besides his composing talent, Wang is a superb pianist as well. He held several piano concerts dedicated to his works in China and USA in the past few years, and he also appeared in various concerts and music festivals as guest pianist, especially premieres of new works. The University of Louisville honored him with a prize during his graduate studies in recognition of his excellence in piano performance.
      Wang received Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in composition from Oberlin College Conservatory and the University of Louisville respectively.

      There are countless configurations, either tranquil or rough, when a river runs through. Shaped by different terrains, routes and climates, a river can present colorful phenomena and create different landscapes. While thousands of lives are relying on the prosperity of river systems, however, some rivers are facing the destiny of disappearance due to contrived harm as well as natural transformation. Therefore, the moments in a vanishing river are extremely precious and fragile as it may never reappear again. The music piece captures the diverse aspects of the vanishing river, and reflects a space of imagination in which the river continues to flow.

      Shi Fuhong, teacher in the Composing Department of Central Conservatory of Music. She graduated from Toronto University in 2009, with a Doctor’s degree in composition. In 2000 and 2005 she graduated respectively from Central Conservatory of Music and University of Victoria in Canada with a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree in composition. She has studied with many world renowned composers, including Tang Jianping, Chen Yi, Guo Wenjing, Su Xia, Zhou Wenzhong, Chen Qigang, James MacMillan, Salvatore Sciarrino, Steve Reich, Murray Schafer, and Gilles Tremblay.

      Her works have won numerous awards, including the sixth annual Taiwanese Symphony Orchestra Composition Competition in 1997, Traditional Music Composition Competition of the Council for Cultural Affairs of Taiwan in 2002, Karen Kieser Music Award in Canada in 2007, and Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal Composition Competition in Canada in 2008, etc.

      She has worked with many orchestras worldwide, including Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal, Queen of Puddings Music Theatre, Orchestre de la Francophonie Canadienne, Taiwan Symphony Orchestra, Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra, and Guangdong National Orchestra, among others.

      Concentric Circles is a piece for large orchestra. The inspiration and structure of the music come from one of the most ancient Chinese philosophy classic texts I Ching. It consists of four consecutive movements: I. Tai Yin; II. Shao Yang; III. Shao Yin; IV. Tai Yang. The music emphasizes the movement, energy, and tension of singular notes. The ratio and balance between pause and music are influenced and inspired by the ideology and aesthetics of Chinese calligraphy.

      The first movement tries to use rustling texture and delicate tone and an imagery of ancient Chinese landscape paintings to create an atmosphere that is vast, spacious, and elegant. The second movement aims to seek transparent and gorgeous musical colors interpreted by the orchestra. The echo produced by the combination of the di erent instrumental groups depicts undulating ripples and the growth rings of trees. Brass and bass instruments are used in the third movement. Multi-layer texture melodies and special tone colors portray vigorous and dynamic religious dance rituals. In the fourth movement, tempest-like musical elements are used till the end of the music, trying to paint the scene in which Kuafu, the legendary figure in Chinese mythology, is exerting all his strength to chase the sun.

      Liu Chang was admitted into the Composing Department of the Middle School attached to China Conservatory of Music in 2004, and admitted with distinction into the Composing Department of Central Conservatory of Music in 2007, studying under Professor Jia Guoping who is a renowned composer and doctoral tutor. In 2008 , Liu Chang’s work Jingle Princess for violin and piano premiered in the concert hall of the Central Conservatory of Music to high acclaim. In May, 2010, Liu Chang’s composition I Believe stood out among the 420 candidates of the Second Songs Collection of the Universiade 2011 in Shenzhen and won the “Prize of Excellence” in the event. Her works include: piano trio Wings of Colors, string quartet Gong, twelve-note serial music Swirling Bubbles, wood pipe quintet Zaandam Boat and piano quintet A Lonely Sunny Day.

      Women are like owers, and blooming owers like women. In the perspective of a woman, there are more beauty and sincerity in this world than anything else, and they are more important than anything else. The presentation of the music originates from an inner voice: the ower asks the water and the light that are so full of hopes and brightness, what is the meaning of life? When she learns the answer, she changes into petals that y and ll the air. There are ve passages of presentation in the music:

      [Posture of the Flower]

      Introducing the concept of “acoustic eld”, the music displays the static beauty of plants. The work is based upon A, with 6 extended tonal pentascale upward to form the essential sound of the music.

      [Asking]?There will always be questions as long as there is life. [Water and Light]

      Either in the West or in the East, water and light are the common vehicles of beliefs and wisdoms of the humankind. They are also the vital elements, like parents, that foster the growth of plants. The vibra-harp is integrated into the orchestra, representing the status, nature, and commonness of these two things.

      [Meaning of Life]

      What is the meaning of life? The music progresses to the fixed rhythms of the eighth note on the timpani, which creates a fixed mode momentum out of the “horizontal exterior hearing”, which again influences the stereometric structure of “vertical interior hearing”.

      [Petals Filling the Air]

      Multi-line extended composing technique is used to present a multidimensional image instead of a single at image. The nale returns to the initial sentiments of the music, transcending all bloom and splendor and giving gratitude to the bliss of life!

      Born in 1978, Du Wei studied piano and composition with her father since childhood. In 1996 she enrolled in the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, where she majored in composition with Shi Wanchun, Fan Naixin and Guo Wenjing. She obtained her Master’s degree in 2005 under the mentorship of Chinese master composer Mr. Guo Wenjing.

      Both her works Stained and Exotic Perfume were commissioned by Radio France, and Stained was awarded in 2003 the third prize of TMSK Liu Tianhua Prize of China National Chamber Music Competition. She also wrote many other works such as Eye of the Heaven commissioned by Shanghai Chinese Orchestra, Color of Love commissioned by Royal Danish Ballet, Golden Lotus commissioned by Hong Kong Arts Festival, Soul of Sword commissioned by National Ballet of China and The Interruption Of a Dream-New Legendary of Peony Pavillion, etc.

      Du Wei created also various movie and TV play music works.

      A falling plum petal, a fleeting dream, enough to exhaust her poor life. Du Liniang, the most vulnerable character of Chinese literature; the most sensible, tender and feminine soul ever seen. In an endless lingering of the ink and wash, in an endless struggling of love desire, she believed, the whole world was in that plum.

      Niao Qing Si · The Interruption Of a Dream features enchanting singing, swaying rhythm of Kunqu opera. It is about the hidden desires sealed with love, incapable of realizing whether it’s a dream or the reality.

      Xiao Ying began piano study at the age of 3. After graduation from the Middle School affiliated to the Central Conservatory of Music, Xiao entered Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris in 2006, studying composition and orchestration under Michel Merlet. One year later, Xiao received an advanced composer diploma. In the same year, Xiao was admitted into the Conservatoire Supérieur de Paris, majoring in composition under Canat de Chizy. Xiao also studied orchestration, counterpoint, music analysis and electronic music there. In 2010, Xiao Ying was admitted into the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris and studied with Gérard Pésson.

      Xiao Ying’s work Reflet d' un reflet for two percussion bands was awarded the first prize in the 1st Lyon Percussion Composition Competition in 2009. The music premiered in the same year in Cannes Licorne Theater, and was published by music publisher Fran?ois Durand in 2010.

      Xiao often works with Parisian chamber music orchestras. In 2008, the commissioned work Rappler à rapel for flute and piano was performed in Ecole Normale de Musique de Paris; in 2009, Doom clock commissioned by Paris Intercontemporain Orchestra for 14 string instruments was performed in Cité de la Musique in Paris.
      Xiao Ying has composed music for many short films and TV videos.

      Baihua Shenchu is a hutong’s name, which means “deep in the blossoms”. Located in the jurisdiction of Shichahai sub-district of Xicheng District, it starts on east from Huguosi East Lane and extends to Xinjiekou South Avenue on west.
      Once, a couple surnamed Zhang bought a eld in the small lane south of Xinjiekou, and they were living on planting vegetables. Later, when they became rich they started to grow flowers. Year after year, many kinds of owers could be found in their garden, which were also decorated with the rockeries, ponds and thatchy pavilions. Their charming flower garden became a quiet and elegant place and attracted many literates to appreciate the blooming owers.

      However, Baihua Shenchu is no longer the tranquil place it once was and the fragrance of owers once there can only be found in people's memory.

      The work Baihua Shenchu is not only a sketch about this alley, but also the sign with emotion facing the transformation of the city’s aspect in the modern time. Did it lose the rivalry against urbanization in the progress of time? Or was it but a glance on our path?

      I have passed it several times, thus I found the subject for the new work of mine.

      In this music, you can hear the occasional ringing of bicycle bell coming out of the alley, chirping of birds in the morning, the sound of cicada in the summer, and melody of famous Peking opera excerpts played by the chinese traditional instrument Jinghu, sometimes near and sometimes far away. On the contrary, urban noises coming from beyond the alley bombard the ear from time to time, creating a fusion of clutter and harmony.

      The writing of this piece for Sheng is based more on western composing ideology. As Westerners call this instrument 'breath organ', the circular breathing technique and the dense chords are extensively used in music.

Furthermore, she created music for film and drama. Invited by Zhu Yibing, famous cellist, conductor and founder of the Cello Philharmonic Ensemble, she adapted the theme song You and Me of the 29th Olympic Games for eight young cellists of the Cello Philharmonic Ensembles.

      I sketched this work in the late autumn, and it was accomplished by the early summer. Through the whole journey, the scenery and my mind melted in water, full of twists and turn up and down. I chose three of the most memorable-worthy moments to express my feeling by the different types of the writing techniques and the shaping of the musicality.

      Born in 1986, Jiang Yu is currently pursuing a Master’s degree in music composition at the University of Missouri-Kansas City Conservatory of Music and Dance, where she studies with Chen Yi and Zhou Long. She received in 2010 a Bachelor of Arts degree in composition from Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, China, where she studied with Liu Yuan for ve years. Her pieces have been performed in various concerts. Electronic music work Kaleidoscope was performed at EMM music festival this October.

      Out of Tao, One is born; Out of One, Two; Out of Two, Three; Out of Three, the created universe.
      —— Laozi “Tao Te Ching” Chapter 42 (Translator: Lin Yutang, 1955)

      The Tao can be considered the root of all things. The nature of those who launched the original motive force has an unlimited potential of creativity and vigor of all things between heaven and earth.

      The launch of creation follows the inherent law. It is a unique road containing the two, which are yin and yang. Qi, the culmination of yin and yang intersects to animate the forms of the world.

      The music starts at the simplest three single tones and slowly changes into a vast complexity. Then it becomes more dynamic and its range is broadened as it reaches the climax; then it returns to the original motive.

      Xiao Ying comes from a musical family. He graduated from The Middle School affiliated to the Central Conservatory of Music in 2006. Xiao started to study with Mr. Michel Merlet and received the Diplome Superieur at Ecole Nomale de Musique de Paris in 2007. He then entered CNR DE PARIS, studying with Canat De Chizy. In 2010,Xiao began to study under the direction of Mr.Gérard Pesson in Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris.

      His major works include "Face Off", which was composed for a string quartet; Piano concerto with Chamber Orchestra — "Bracelet Vert"; "Shang Ye" for piano and flute; "HüZüN" for eight cellos and electronic music "Empty Room". His work "Le Reflect de Reflect" for two sets of percussion won the first prize in the first Lyon percussion composition competition. This piece was premiered in Cannes Licorne Theater in 2009, and published by French music publisher Durand in 2010. Xiao has worked with Paris Chamber Orchestra many times. His piece "Appel a Rappel" for flute and piano which was under the permission of Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris received big success. In 2011, his piece "Flowers Deep Hidden" was selected as one of the top six works in the first NCPA Young Composer Programme. In 2012, Xiao worked for the French Independent Theatre director Froment Xavier, and composed for his work which was based on Dostoevsky's novel Underground Notes. This work premiered the same year in Paris ve underground independent theaters. Mr. Xiao's work "Crushed Leaves" for the Pipa and the trumpet was comissioned by the Lyon National Conservatory of Music. At the same year, in 2012, Xiao has founded the French Young Artists Association LEZARTS with his friend Rafael Carosi, and participated in the rst Young Artists Music Festival as a guest composer. The concert's theme was proposed by Mr. Xiao to pay tribute to the minimalism. His commissioned work "Rose Punishment" for small chamber music premiered at the festival's opening concert. The festival also staged a lot of his works which were composed while he was in France.

      Xiao also collaborated with many film and theater directors, and wrote for many film soundtracks in France.

      The piece is divided into ve movements. Every movement is based on individual independent musical language, from atonality to pan-tonality and then form pan-atonality to tonality. The manifestation mode of Pipa is not independent from the band, but blended into orchestral harmony. Discordant harmony and sole melody are both presented in the song, which is suitable to the theme, as if a traveler who is looking for himself with rm faith.

      Li Bo is an accomplished young composer who has gained extensive recognition for his work through success in several international competitions and music festivals. Born in Jilin, China in 1988, he studied piano and composition at an early age and in 2004 attended the middle school attached to Central Conservatory of Music,studying in composition department. Since 2007 he studied under Professor Tang JianPing in the Central Conservatory of Music and was awarded a "Bao Gang" National Scholarship for outstanding academic achievement to study an MA degree in 2011.

      His compositions cover a variety of styles and forms, and have been performed in a number of contemporary music concerts. Many of his works have won numerous awards in the international well-known composition competitions

      In recent years, his music has been highly recognized by winning several world composition competition prizes. His works were performed in music festivals and publishing.

      His achievements include: Paul Hindermith Prize 2012; China’s highest competition"Wen Hua" gold prize 2011; the first prize of "Con Tempo"international composition competition.

      Encirclement was inspired by the Chinese Pipa masterpiece Ambushes from Ten Sides. As a representative of the Chinese classical music, it presented an overall view of a decisive battle in the 202 B.C. when two major armies of the time, Chu and Han tried to defeat each other to rule the ancient China. Many years ago when I was only a beginner of composition, I was completely absorbed by its power and grandeur, as well as the vividness. Now, in looking back on this inspirational piece, some humanistic connotations hidden underneath the tunes caught my eyes.

      The term “ambushes from ten sides” was in nature a military strategy to surround and annihilate the enemies, who on the other hand can only put up a desperate ght to get through the siege. To me, this situation resembles our life. Once under stress or adversity, one may feel like being ambushed, whereas only with unyielding faith and relentless endeavor can he overcome obstacles to triumph in the end.

      This piece, Encirclement, starts with a passage of tremendous momentum, and a classic opening motif of Ambushes from Ten Sides is introduced by the piano in the eighteenth bar of the piece so as to bring about the variations and original creations made by the composer. After another passage full of power and conflicts, the music begins to emanate a mysteriously tranquil atmosphere in passage E, with short but delicate phrases alternating in di erent parts in a faintly- discernible term as if a person is constantly searching and striving in a di cult situation.

      Based on the Ambushes from Ten Sides, Encirclement develops into a more realistic piece to reflect on the present day. Despite the fact that few people nowadays have ever been in a battlefield, the daring spirit and perseverance have always been indispensible in our seemingly humdrum life. In creating this piece, I also motivate myself to break through encirclement coming with this complicated times and blaze new trails that belong to myself.

      Liu Jian was born in Guangzhou in 1984, and started learning the piano and painting since she was very young.

      She got her Bachelor degree in Xinghai Conservatory of Music, studied The History of Western Music with Professor Huang Hong and Composition Theory with Professor Xu Xueji and Associate Professor Li Fang. She got her Master degree in Shanghai Conservatory of Music, studying composition with associate professor Lu Huang. From 2010, she began to work for her Doctorate in composition in Shanghai Conservatory of Music under the guidance of professor Yang Liqing, and received a Doctor’s degree in 2013.

      Beside the Li River II is composed for western orchestra and is based on a folk song from Hunan –“work song of boatman”.

      The natural structure of the Chinese boatman’s work song – introduction, Pingshui song, see the beach, go up to the beach, go over the beach , go down from the beach – is adopted here as a leading thought. A variety of means of imitating the sounds are used to exhibit the grand natural landscape and demonstrate the strength together with the courage of the brave person.

      “Between” has a double meaning. It not only means that the composer is inspired by the moment while the sky and water are merging at the horizon beside the Li River, but also means that the composer is trying to integrate different thoughts and techniques, and trying to make something new as basing on the synthesis of Chinese and western styles and ancient and today’s manners.

      A native of Sichuan, raised in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, Zhou Juan graduated from the Central Conservatory of Music and University of Missouri – Kansas City. She joined the faculty of the Central Conservatory in 2010. She was awarded the Golden Bell Award of the Association of Literature and Arts, 17th National Music Composition Award of Ministry of Culture, ASCAP Foundation Morton Gould Award, GEDOK Fuch-Award and many others. Her major works include orchestral works End of the Earth, Far Far Away, Second Language, Before “Curtain!” (symphonic band), My Spiritual Garden (Uygur artists and chamber orchestra), two operas Wu Kong and Nightingale, Fate Makes a Choice (musical theater), two Peking Opera incidental music Golden Lock and Sing by the River Flower, Oedipus the King (play), Love Cantata, Wind (chorus), Water Your Memory (jazz band), large ensemble Ming and Say “Bye”, Cycle of Life (song cycle), two string quartets, and many chamber works.

      Second Language is one page from my music diary.

      It was a summer night after rain in 2007. I, accompanied by three suitcases lling with my memories and dreams, arrived in Kansas City – a new stop of my life.

      Before long, I could not nd myself in between the two di erent kinds of culture and language. But I fell in love with Jazz. Maybe it was a mistake. I am female, Chinese, even from desert, a Muslim region. I was way too far from Jazz. I refer to that period my “period of lonely strangeness.” It is named after a mourning dove, who resided next to my window, and whose strange song had woken me up every morning since the rst dawn of my arrival. This bird’s song is lonely but filled with hope, which perfectly echoed my feelings at that moment. The work starts with the long-short-short motive of the bird’s song, which is transformed into di erent forms and moods drastically to imply the change that had quietly unfolded within my mind over the period.

      Bita Lake, the highest plateau in the lakes in Yunnan province, located in the northwest of Yunnan province Shangri-la, was inhabited by a variety of rare birds. The scenery of four seasons there is beautifully quiet. The composer’s work about “the morning of Bita Lake" is composed of two continuous movements: rstly, the brume. secondly, the wind and rain dance scenery portray vivid and natural avor, full of young and mysterious color. It is the work of modern music rarely heard, based on the motivation of only three sounds and has contracted tonal harmony, rich delicate orchestration. The composer does not search for only new music techniques, on the contrary, in the light landscape painting he attaches more importance to the spirit of energy through the full development of rhetoric and material music. This kind of music is simple but full of tension that depicts the beautiful painting of the scenery at the same time, the desire for nature and soul free. It is the shock for the people living in the noisy 21th century; Enjoying the simplicity and nature arouses the reflection. the most beautiful and the most precious of life is simply refreshing natural and spiritual freedom.

      For me, Death was never the end of an individual exists. Between the pain of birth and death, between hope and memory, gladness and sorrow, acquisition and loss... life enriched extremely our imagination. As part of life, death should be described, because it was not just a realm of darkness. Who we loved and passed away, must have walked through a road to the netherworld, by the side of which, Manjusaka bloomed like The ocean of red flowers. They must have crossed over the bridge of San Tu River which just like the beautiful rainbow...In fact, music is the most proper artistic form to describe death.

      I used a patch of MAX/MSP(Bach) for interpolation between the complex chord and the mode chord to get the materials of pitch, then created ?harmonic melody?, and ?melodic harmony?.This work is full of ?contrapuntal homophony? and ?homophonic contrepoint?.

      Logic and structure of music are still important in my work. Besides, I tried as usual to find a balance point of expression and perception.

      Techniques are always so cold. Only the sound, the perception and the resonance of ears are precious.

      This work lasts 11 minutes and it is divided into three parts which are: The road to the netherworld, San Tu River, Manjusaka.

      This work is dedicated to whom we loved and missed.

      This “Nocturne” was inspired by Whistler's?oil painting "Nocturne:?Blue?and?gold".

      On the basis of?color music?theory,?I combined the color factor of the art and the language of music.

      The work is based on a Tang dynasty poem entitled Cloud by Lai Hao, and the pitch materials are adopted from Three Stanzas of Plum-blossoms – a popular work during the Tang dynasty for the Chinese instrument Guqin. These are used to create a contemporary musical language. A work that does not focus on creative image, but rather implies something poetry chant, constantly inspiring people to picture and contemplate deeply. The work with the Chinese character “Pei” attached after are even more fitting personification in the poem Cloud. To show the original gracious character of Plum and the fun-filled melodies of Ancient Chinese literati, the composer re-interprets in another light Lai Hao’s most influential ode to a cloud, in order to show his sentiment, connection and philosophy of the poet’s verse. The work is divided into four sections (performed continuously), with each corresponding to each line.

He is also good at seeing things through different perspectives; in his artistic creation, he once said, "creating art works is to pursue freedom, and to free our souls from shackles. I value liberty more than my life." He always pays tribute to freedom in his works.

      "Anything in the universe, especially art, is characterized by innocence, roughness, even childishness at the beginning of its birth. However, perhaps for this reason that it appears to be more naive, undaunted and noble than mature works of later period, in other words, presenting its spirit perfectly." These thoughts came to the composer's mind when he was visiting Yungang Grottoes and the Dunhuang caves of the Northern Wei Dynasty. Unfortunately, because Emperor Xiaowen of the Northern Wei Dynasty praised highly for the Han nationality tradition culture and replaced their own culture with it, the characteristics of the Xianbei nationality faded away, thus causing it vanished in history.Therefore, The Echo of the Northern Wei Dynasty itself is a journey of speculation through the history and reality. There are two themes of pitch, rhythm, tone, harmony and acoustic in the opposite. One theme is a symbol of the primitive, crude, and the vibrant Xianbei culture in the Northern Wei era; another pentatonic theme symbolizes the Han culture's extremely loose, free hand, inclusive and permeable feature. After the initial presentation of the conflicting themes, a series of "proofs" and "protests" culminating in the golden section (116 bars) of the work. It is worth mentioning that the work has a majestic end. The acoustical material comes from the half-tone motivation at the beginning of the work, which has been intensifying and resounding. It seems that the long-vanished Northern Wei Dynasty and Xianbei nationality have turned into beliefs and echoes, through time and space, to tell us about its once vigor and brilliance.

Being awarded the orchestral composer residency in 2014 in New York University, she had an orchestral work Inksplash premiered at Symphony Space in New York in February 2015.Documentary movie Still Human and the short movie New York, I Love You she scored for have attended NYU and Lincoln Center film festival. Her art song The Road Not Taken was performed at St. Mark's Church in San Francisco in February, 2018.

      The composition Three Poems is based on Finnish poet Edith Irene S?dergran's poems: The Incantation, Forest Darkness, At Sunrise.

      S?dergran was one of the first modernists in Swedish-language literature. She was strongly influenced by French Symbolism, German Expressionism, and Russian Futurism. Her poems have strong images depicting her life, love and death. The conflict between sensual, physical life and the spiritual, self-enclosed world of will and imagination structures S?dergran's work from her adolescent poems to her last collection. The three movements try to apply different approaches to expressing the shifting moods of melancholy and joy in a free verse form.

      The Incantation is featured in the contrast of strings tremolo at low register and the weak sustaining harmonic notes, the dreamlike color of the pitched percussion and the brassy horns, the running notes and the strike of the metal sound, reminding the demon in the hell and the disguised enticement.

      In Forest Darkness, prepared piano, microtone, and continuous glissando of woodwinds and strings construct a twisted sound world, expressing the sick god, melancholy forest, the pale flowers and the shy birds.

      For the third poem At Sunrise, the fanfare-like music concerns more on the color of the harmony progression. The motif played by trumpets at the beginning is the nucleus of the whole movement, which is transformed and developed until it fills in different parts.

In October 2017, he went to Hochschulefür Musikund Theater Hamburg and studied with Professor CHEN Xiaoyong. He won the Recognition Award in the Third China-ASEAN Music Festival in 2014. His chamber music work Just Listen to the Wind Intoning for a Moment I won the Record Award at the 16th Kozani International Music Seminars in September 2014, and was then selected into the 17th KIMS in August 2017. It was also selected into the "Masterclass of International Student Works" during the 7th Shanghai Conservatory of Music Contemporary Music Week, and performed by Scenatet from Denmark. His chamber music work The Tides in My Dream won the third place at the 6th Baichuan Prize of Shanghai Conservatory of Music in 2015, and was performed by Klangforum Wien from Austria. His symphonic work Fields Under the Stars was selected into the 4th NCPA Young Composer Programme and performed by China National Opera House Symphony Orchestra at NCPA Concert Hall on September 22, 2017. His string orchestral work In Memories was commissioned under the "2017 Young Musician Training Plan" and completed a tour in August 2017.

      Fields Under the Stars is inspired by Vincent van Gogh's legendary painting - The Starry Night. The starry night, colourful and magnificent, always sparks wild imaginations and fantasies. The wilderness,vast and boundless, sends out a message of inclusiveness. The two images depart and collide in composer's heart and finally reach a balance. The work is intended to show the new world of sound, magnificent and grandiose, that the composer created in his mind. It also embodies his desperate desire for a romantic, perfect spiritual realm. Fields Under the Stars, written in a form of Western symphonic sketch, features a special charm always seen in Chinese paintings. The music is generated through atonality to pantonality and finally to tonality.

      Growing up in the northeast part of China, the composer has a vivid memory of the harsh winters there when the vast land is covered with snow and the freezing wind never stops blowing. Nevertheless, the cold doesn't get in the way of local people's passion for a better life, nor their cultivation of an easygoing temperament, characterized with simplicity of mind and benevolence. This piece is the composer's ode to the greatness of humanity, to their immense courage in fighting against hardships posed by uncontrollable forces, as well as to the deepest love and affection among all human beings. It stands for his attitude to life, which to his sincerest aspiration should be like a wisp of spring breeze, blowing away the indifference, grudges and dissatisfaction that have been long reserved in man's mind. What a blessing it will be if we all can live our life in an optimistic fashion, and extend our arms wide open to embrace the next bright, beautiful spring in our long journey, just like his beloved fellows of the chilling Northeast.

His works were selected into music festivals at home and abroad, and won him many awards, including the second prize in 2015 NCPA Young Composer Programme, the subsidization by CNAF Young Artist Project in 2016.

      Sichuan Sanxingdui civilization is now known as the "the ninth miracle of the world" in the archaeology, the Bronze Mask with Protruding Eyes is the most peculiar and special one among all the bronze masks unearthed from Sanxingdui Ruin Site.

      Many mysteries have emerged with lots of bronze masks unearthed. The ancient Chinese Shu Kingdom absorbed foreign cultures in the process of migration, and the music also changed subtly at the same time.

      We don't know whether the Bronze Mask with Protruding Eyes was created and designed in such an extraordinary shape due to "culture of dissemination" or "convergence". However, the composer tries to trace in this work the ancient and mysterious Shu Kingdom and the charm shining in the weaving of different cultures.

      Symphonic poem Night Breeze Under the Dusky Moon is composed in the composer's favorite pointillist style as usual. Maintaining the complete melody integrated, it adds some changes in the background, sometimes dense, while sometimes light, sometimes somber, and sometimes bright.

      The entire piece does not have a distinct climax or bottom. No complete melody could be seen on surface, but you can feel that lights and hues are mirrored on a vibrating water surface.

      Technically, this piece has two primary motives throughout. At the beginning, they develop independently, and are emphasized by the diverse harmony in the background. Later on, they are changed, unfolded and integrated, and eventually interweaved into the entire piece.

      This piece vividly delineates a looming picture that the moon slowly moves through clouds. The duration of the work is approximately 12 minutes.
