Prog. notes: This piece is about memories of a time 15 years ago when I was playing Pipa in Chinese orchestra (an activity I had been doing for 10 years) and questions I have been asking myself, especially sometimes when I wake up in the morning, when, for a moment, I forget who I am and where I am.
I recorded some sounds inside the piano, such as scraping the strings and plucking the strings. The piano part is inspired by the physical gesture of playing the Pipa. The tape part extends the sound using vibrato and timbre change, making the music more dynamic and registral.
