Christopher Poovey: Crystalline Vapor (2015)
2015 @ Ford Hall, Indiana University
"Crystalline Vapor explores the idea of focus by crossfading between two textures: a chaotic texture made up of polyrhythmic figures and fragmented lines and a frozen chordal texture rich with dramatic swells. When composing
this piece I imagined myself surrounded by flurries of ice large enough so that they refracted sunlight to form a chaotic spectrum. Occasionally there would be a sight so beautiful that time would seem to stop allowing me to truly appreciate its beauty."

Ho-Ling Tang: La Neblina (2017)
2018@ Concert Hall, Hong Kong Academy of Performing Arts
La Neblina” means “Fog” in Spanish. Talking about Fog, it is actually some tiny liquid water droplets suspended in the air. These are actually separate water droplets on their own. But when they come together, it formed a special atmosphere and texture, and I was trying to recreate that in the piece. To me, listening to string quartet has the same feeling. Each instruments in the string quartet has their own character, but when they play together, they are one.
