本曲在创作中参照了唐大曲结构特征。作品在整体上既可以看成由十个小段落组成的多段体结构,又可以分为“散序、中序、破”三个大的乐章。其中,电子音乐和传统打击乐器的声音色彩组合,代表着大的“阴”与“阳”的一虚一实。而真实乐器和电子声音又同时具备各自小的“阴阳”面,例如传统打击乐器主要包括皮质(排鼓、大鼓)和铜质(锣 磬 镲)两类不同材质的乐器,象征着“阴阳”的一暗一明。
作品以Protools为创作平台,所有电子音乐变形材料均来自于真实打击乐器采样,大量运用Max/MSP,GRM Tools等软件进行声音合成与变形。作者在创作中充分挖掘各类声音的色彩性与表现力,希望通过具体的声音,抽象的表现及浪漫的写意创造出“阴阳”对话的“虚拟空间”。作品在演奏上充分发挥传统打击乐器的技巧,并自创了一些演奏技法(如摩擦鼓皮,边击鼓侧等),以追求更加丰富的音乐效果。对于打击乐手来说,掌握灵活性与对比性也是至关重要的。

The work was completed on Logic Pro. The sound materials came from samples of real percussion instruments and were transformed and synthesized allied with Max/Msp and GRM Tools. Composer fully exploited the timbre and expression power of each kind of
