拥抱重生 Yǒngbào chóngshēng, is a varied transcription of my cello solo Who is like God? : Embracing Dumuzi. As such, 拥抱重生 is intended as a musical portrayal of my spiritual embrace and invocation of the Sumerian god, Dumuzi (Semitic Tamuz) the most ancient personification of the eternal cycle of life, death, destruction and renewal. In Sumerian mythology, Dumuzi is portrayed as a beautiful, innocently self-centred youth who dies and rises again, bringing both destruction and renewal with the turn of the seasons. Dumuzi also embraces the roles of priest, king and husband of the great Sumerian goddess of love, war and enlightenment, Inanna (Semitic Ishtar). He is the quickener of the child, the force that causes the sap to rise in the tree and a deity of fertility, vegetation and the netherworld. Dumuzi has also been called 'the Shepherd' and 'lord of the sheepfolds'. In the Sumerian King-List, Gilgamesh was descended from 'Dumuzi a shepherd. The musical material of 拥抱重生 encompasses melodies inspired by both the Arab and Jewish traditions, in addition to fragments intended to evoke my conception of ancient Sumerian music.
