A Thousand Mountains

獨釣寒江雪

This piece is composed for solo clarinet with Kyma realtime processing. The theme is based on the Chinese poem River Snow by Liu Zangyuan (773—819), writer and poet of the Tang Dynasty.

A thousand mountains—no bird’s flight.

Ten thousand paths—no man’s trace.

Single boat, an old man, in a straw raincoat.

Alone, fishing, in the icy river. Snow.

柳宗元

千山鳥飛絕

萬徑人蹤滅

孤舟簑笠翁

獨釣寒江雪
