<WILD TUNE STRAY RHYTHM >TRILOGY
An expression from the Chinese Opera signifying music out of tune or rhythm, this is a trilogy ranging from a Himalayan musical theme which explores the cross-routes of culture and religion in this seemingly remote area (Three Dakini are Discussing), over a Central Asian Sufi theme (Ashik Castle) and a no man'd land theme of tribes looking for new land (Liberating No Man's Land). Three distinct regions, three distinct sounds, which Dawanggang explores without slumbering into folklore or repetition.
The music in this trilogy wants to be accompanied by dance and light, becoming an opera-like opus.
The text for Three Dakini are Discussing is written by Song Yuzhe in the form of a long poem, comparable to an epic parabole, with characters and drama. He wants to push the musicians and the audience to reflect on deities crossing borders.
