Beyond

electroacoustic composition (stereo)

2016 (REV. 2020)

duration: 8'00"

studio: Center for Experimental Music and Intermedia, University of North Texas

Beyond works with recordings of human voices (throat singing) and instrumental sounds from the daily rituals and practices of Tibetan Buddhism. The piece explores the flowing nature of vocal sound materials and frames these in a sound ritual. In this piece, I transformed the sound spectrum of Tibetan traditional percussion instruments as symbolic elements of spiritual power. The colorful and natural voices of Gyuto monks and nuns become a bridge that communicates between earth and heaven.

*Beyond was selected in 2018 ISCM World New Music Days and performed in Beijing in May 2018.
