Prog. notes: Inspired by Song Dynasty poet Su Tungpo’s meditation on seeing snow-covered footprints on the mud, incidentally left by a passing wild swan. The fantastic images of the interstellar space so beautiful and stunning, are comparable to the footprints of the wild swan, easily overlooked, shedding fugitive light from eternal unknown darkness.

The mysterious universe and the enormous space of cosmos inspired the composer to dictate his imagination with electroacoustic music.

Five interstellar illusions explore the sparkling moments of the universe and create many different soundscapes with five different musical languages between instruments and electroacoustic music. The new combination of these sounds builds and explores a fresh beauty of sound and space.
