Sheet Music: Score
The Warmth of the Nebula : for solo piccolo and 8-channel fixed media / Annie Hui-Hsin Hsieh.
by Annie Hsieh (2016)
About the work
This piece came instinctively as an imagined scenario that is as vividly imprinted in my mind as it is physically felt. A certain timelessness of this environment engulfs one's sense of a beginning and an end, almost as if one suddenly finds herself surrounded by a vaporous blanket of fog that quietly seeped in, thickens, encapsulates and wraps one within.
Then the gently burning glows glisten all around, within reach yet not to be captured.
Note on the fixed media
Michael Matsuno performed the recorded materials on an open-holed bass flute kindly provided by John Fonville. The session engineer was Colin Zyskowski and the spatial programming was realized in collaboration with Johannes Regnier.
