Peace of Mind II

明鏡止水II, 2015

for Violoncello and Zheng

performed by Zhu Mu and Kwan-ying Bou

"Peace of Mind” refers to a cultivation of a state of mind, which literally means a clean and bright soul with no distracting thoughts. I wish my mind could be as clear as a mirror and as calm as water, facing anything with a tranquil and truthful heart. Like the previous one, I would like to make use of the most simplest musical ideas to develop the entire piece through slow and micro changes in the music.
