Prog. notes: JiaJie (佳节) is a real-time performance composition that uses one digital drawing tablets and Symbolic Sound's Kyma system to shape a 8 channel sound experience. Using 'pen' end to control the spacial location of the sound while the 'eraser' end to trigger different scene.

JiaJie cited the phrase from the poem 九月九日忆山东兄弟(a poem describe the feeling of homesick during traditional festival )
“独在异乡为异客, 每逢佳节倍思亲。
遥知兄弟登高处, 遍插茱萸少一人。”
