WAVE PIECE FOR MULTIPLE PERFORMERS, by Yifeng Yvonne Yuan
I’ve always been attracted by the motion of waves, by their transience and their immortality. We see water ebb and flow by waves, and we hear sound appears and decays as waves. This connection between water and sound typically inspired me on writing this work, as I want to merge them into one. I see it, and then I hear it.
