Première: November Musik Festival. FHS-Essen
Zhong is a search towards the CENTER, discovering a universe of constant and eternal modification, a world driven by the dynamic created through opposite fighting forces.
The expression and symbol of this eternal transformation is fire, from which the multiplicity of the world is formed.
“The fire comes from a central flame – it burns from inside out. The fire is a unique phenomenon that can clear everything up. Just as everything that changes slowly lets itself clear up through life, everything that changes quickly lets itself clear up through the fire” After Gaston Bachelard, The Psychoanalysis of Fire, Paris, Edited by Gallimard, 1938.
