Notes by the composer

Three years ago, when I lived in Hong Kong, I recorded the sounds of Typhoon Mangkhut. Since that time, I have incorporated those sounds into installations and pieces in the States. In this piece, I use those sounds again. The sounds are returning home to HK.

There are other Hong Kong-specific features too. The middle of the piece was written to showcase HKNME’s leader, William Lane, on viola, and Angus Lee on flute, and the microtonal pipes for percussion were fabricated for a collaboration with Toolbox two years ago. I had left the pipes in HK with The Up:Strike Project (who plays percussion in this piece) so they could be used in future projects such as this one.

The filmmaker, Arnont Nongyao, has contributed a video installation. And I am also happy to be collaborating with the light artist, Amy Chan, again. She worked on Infinito Nero, a piece I curated for HKNME earlier this season.
