Dark, Light (2009)
I suffered from a car accident three years ago. The accident broke my left knee’s ligament. When I knew that a surgical operation was inevitable, I was frightened. Fortunately, my family accompanied me as I rode out the crisis. I feel really lucky that the accident only injured one of my knees, and I still live healthily now.
The piece describes the shifting of my mental state while I was recovering from my injury. I can overcome the dark if I have an optimistic mind, and then the light would certainly arrive.
The whole piece comprises three movements:
I- A gleam sometimes appears amid the fearful breathing and heart beating.
II- The interweaving melody means struggling in pain, with Death’s footstep sounds appearing from time to time.
III- The light of hope appears and comforts everything.
