Dedicated to Qi Jie and José Valente

This piece explores the duality that goes beyond that between two performers, each hailing from Western and Eastern musical traditions, but also the dualities that exists between point and line, pitched and unpitched, harmonicity and inharmonicity, substantial and ethereal, loose and tight, pulsed and unpulsed, movement and stasis, sparseness and density...these dualities do not stay as stable extremes, but constantly interact and morph into one another, functioning as parts of a whole, and at the same time giving rise to multiplicity.
