Comment

Although conceived of for a mixed Asian and Western ensemble, several, quite different, core ensembles could be used. For example, an amplified band: soprano sax, electric violin, 3 electric guitars, drum set, synthesizer and electric bass; an "intercultural" band: shakuhachi, kamancheh, clarinet, dumbeck, accordion, classical guitar, zhonruan, and guitarron. The first version was performed on dizi, erhu, pipa, drum set, zheng, classical guitar, zhongruan, and electric bass. - John Oliver (source: composer homepage)
