Notes on this piece
I . Praecox / Image
ca 4' 20''

A floral leaf of Cytisus looks like a butterfly. Like karner blue billowed out of a pen of the great
writer Vladimir Nabokov, countless images make me exhilarated. As a bunch of small
butterfly-like petals looks like a broom, the fairy Puck in Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's
Dream uses it as a broom. Sometimes a breeze brushing the surface of skin creates friction
sound, or breath of petals is mixed up and overlapped one another. Through striking contrast
between pianissimo and fortissimo, sul ponticello and sul tasto, both a sharp wind and soft
vibration of sweet petals are to be projected into instruments.

II . Lena / Parfum
ca 5' 10''

Cytisus luxuriantly clusters together and its fragrance is affluent as well. Shedding sweet scent,
it is soft as a feather, and the image derived from the scent reminds me of an ideal woman
whom I used to meet in my dream. She comes to be incarnated through its fragrance and the
image is intensified. The romance of the flowers shaded under the flapping of wings is reflected
on the surface of the deep water through Cantos. To figurate the rich scent of a flower wafting
by the breeze, we must understand sublime romance growing with this flower.

III. Scoparius / Chimera
ca 4' 45''

'Chimera' is an imaginary animal in Greek mythology with the head of a lion, the chest of a lamb
and the tail of a snake. Biologically, Chimera is a term to designate an animal that has two or
more different populations of genetically distinct cells. The earliest report of this phenomenon was
in 1828, with the case of Cytisus. This phenomenon is also called 'Mosaic'. Notes, measures and
melodic lines cross and create variation at dazzling speed. We can call this as Mosaic in music.
A theme is transformed and torn. the reverberations are memorized and imprinted on chromosome
of a flower, and these countless images are mixed and combined. Following the diverse variation
on theme, we return to the starting point before we know it where the original image of Cytisus
is created and the music is completed.
