A University of Western Sydney project this interesting CD is the third by Antoinetta in a collaboration with the composers who have been encouraged to write new pieces for this project. It consists of piano pieces which draw on such influences as Chinese bird song; stylistic characteristics of Chinese instruments on an Australian folk tune; impressions of Shanghai; a phrase from Yijing (l-ching); teracotta figures of a travelling orchestra on horseback; a Chinese nursery rhyme; the concept of Qi; a Hong Kong market early in the morning; a poem by Chinese poet Po Chu (772-846); the musics of the three cultures of Malaysia; and from a Chinese perspective, winter days and a funeral in Australia.

Duration: 64 min.
