The Breath of the Forest

Gender: Female

Dest: Concert

Media Specification: Acousmatic

Duration: 7:59

Perf. Country: TAIWAN

Context: This is a work for memorizing the trip visiting the Plitvice
Lakes National Park at Croatia and reflect the lives and
the breath of the forest I sensed during the trip. Every
time I went to nature, I felt I was integrated as a whole
with nature where human-beings are from. I love the
sense of connections between humans and nature.
It is very important to have natural sound to speak itself,
therefore, I compose this work with 50 % of soundscapes
and 50% of electronic music (with instrumental sound).
The soundscapes are not backgrounds, but foreground
mingled with electronic chamber music part. I
synthesized sound to mimic the 'heart-beat' of nature.
The instrumental sound mimics the whispers of the
forest. In 21st century, we hope to connect with nature
more consciously and admit it is vividly alive rather than
just treats it as a “place or space” where we are living in
and taking things from it without mercy.
