Prog. notes: Wu Ren Kan Ji is a work for solo cello and fixed media derived from my art song Gu Yan Er originally for soprano, clarinet, and cello. While I extract and further develop musical ideas from the original art song, this new piece is another interpretation of the poem. As reflected by the title Wu Ren Kan Ji – translated no one to give to – emphasizes the isolation and desperation of the poet at the loss of her husband and the realization that she will live the rest of her life in loneliness.
