The sound source for Metascapes:Rains,Winds,Thunders, and Birds was mainly drawn from Chinese cymbal, and was then transformed into numerous different sonic gestures. While the evolving and developing of the work, those sonic gestures were interplaying and interweaving together. As a result, an interesting aural effect or an ear theatre of a Metascapes consisting of Rains,Winds,Thunders,and Birds was thus created.
This composition reflects composer’s interests in two aspects: (1) exploring the maximal possibility of sonic transformation of minimal sound sources (in the case --the cymbal); (2)“organizing”(in E. Varese’s word) and “micromontaging” (in H. Vaggione’s word) the processed sounds to create interests of the work.
Thanks to advance of nowdays’ technology. It is only through the use of computer and modern studio facility, composer is able to shape his desired sonic gestures based upon the very limited sound source and is able to rebuild/reconstructing those processed sounds into an artistic work. And ,finally, the inner power and beauty, and the virtual music (composition)potential of the sound source-Chinese Cymbal were fullly revealed and manifested in the work.
