about

“Adrift” was written in September 2015 during the refugee crisis in Europe. It represents the early phase of my transition as a composer of pop songs to one writing instrumental pieces. It is largely melodic, and parts of it once had lyrics. During the creative process, I imagined the experience of a person adrift in the sea wondering whether she will reach a new life the shore, or drown somewhere along the journey. Musically, the group explored the possibilities of non-rhythmical improvisation, which is later also used in the performance of our own compositions, as well as re-interpretation of works by other composers.

2015年9月正值歐洲難民潮,我當時寫下《浮生變調》,樂曲亦代表了我由一位流行曲創作人過渡到純音樂的初期。它旋律性強,部分更曾經配上歌詞。我一邊創作,一邊幻想自己是在大海中漂流的一員,最後到底能靠岸抑或在途中遇溺?至於音樂方面,團隊探索了無節奏即興演奏的可能性,讓我們在其後的原創或改編作品都能加入這種演奏元素。
