It doit y avoir absolument éternité en musique: 我作曲故我在 – I compose; therefore I am.

The work’s title “Through a Fading Autumn” also implies “drifting” and “passing”, towards another land.

Different from that in a standard Sizhu ensemble, I applied two huqins as the main role in this piece, which is like a miniature chamber concerto. The two huqins sometimes closely combine with each other and sometimes develop individual lines. The other two instruments here, pipa and zheng, also form a duet to respond and color the two huqins’ lines. A prayer’s melody is interspersed among these voices.

This work is in memorial of my sister, who passed away in late autumn in 2009. (The computer score is finalized in January, 2011.)

namo amitābhāya tathāgatāya tadyathā
amṛto dbhave amṛta siddhaṃbhave
amṛta vikrānte amṛta vikrānta
gāmine gagana kīrtakare svāhā.

– Pure-Land Dharani

Echoes are ringing in my heart
