Notes on this piece
for saxophones quartet and orchestra. Commissioned by Rikskonserter for Stockholm Saxophone Quartet The title is an abbreviation of four words in Chinese and one in French: 1)wu, 2)wù, 3) wù, 4)wu and 5) Moi. 1) wu means demon or devil. 2) wù means error, default 3) wù also means comprehension or revelation 4) wu means nothing, non-existence 5) Moi means Me. This five words summary a personal journey of seeking for God within. wwww-M is also a code for different dimensions of realities. wwww are 3 visible material dimensions plus time.

Experiencing the internal struggles and profound suffering, we understand the true meaning of life. We get to know ourselves and by that means we come to a better understanding of the others. To get the true “Me”, we have to be conscious about the fake one, the ego who separates us from the true freedom of the heart. By doing errors, we know suffering. By suffering we learn to correct the errors and so we get consciousness. The truth is that life is about Love. Without love we are nothing but only a living dead, we become so empty that we lose the meaning of existence. But only by sacrificing “ego” and give the selfishness entirely away, thereby becoming nothing, we win everything. Peace and Joy fill in. We get only by losing. Then we find the true “Me”, the purpose of “God”- Love Himself. And Love is giving…
