A Night Without Music
I started writing lyrics for a Japanese composer a few years ago.
Four Works was written as lyrics for music as the theme was politics.
Other pieces are mainly about nature. Sunshine, shadow, rain, smell of soil, wind make you feel emotional and humble. I wanted to remind myself human beings are nothing in front of nature.
My admiration for Chinese classic poems have influenced me to write short, simple and sharp expression but contains strong emotion.
