SONG is from a three movement piece titled "A Song, a Hymn & a Chant" scored for large orchestra w/large percussion section.

The piece is based around the tune "Reflection of the Moon on Er Lake" by the Beijing street violinist Hua Yan-Jin. It's played in bits and pieces throughout by the pitched percussion and later by the full orch. with a nod to the 'Yellow River'(sic) style of orchestration.

Sorry, but with much of this piece it's not possible to get even an approximate playback thru MIDI/Scorch (at least not with my equipment/sound card/etc.). If you'd like to try pages 8-14 the playback at this point in the piece gives a decent idea of the music.

>As a little programme aside, I was trying to capture in sound the pathetic paradox of a poor, street violinist playing his lovely little tunes amidst the absurd din and post-modern developmental chaos of 21st century Beijing.

>Btw the associated score link, "Night Piece #3 Dreamscape" is a piano solo version of the orch. piece.
