Printing Material：Color fine paper
This is an adaptation of a work for trombone solo composed in 2000, consisting of four small pieces, each of which is a separate work.
“Monologue 1: Darkness" is the second song of the original. This is the monologue of a man who wanders into the darkness in a dream. Although it is a twelve-note sequence, I dared to use many intervals of 4 or 5 degrees in the basic sequence. I hope that you will feel the "light" in this work.
(Duration : ca. 3 min.)
“Monologue 2: Rondeau" is the third song of the original. This is the monologue of a man who, in a dream, wanders into a mysterious world of Dance. It is a simple, refrain and couplet composition. The second couplet (from bar 77) quotes the melody of Honegger's Nocturne in alto saxophone.
(Duration : ca. 4’10”)
The two works can be performed alone or in succession.
