Notes on this piece
Add to a playlist

The uncertainty of such concept as “a skinny horse” fascinated me. Besides many phrases from Chinese classical literature familiar to us, depicting imageries of “a skinny horse”, came to my mind the lean horse thrashed and tortured in a dream of Raskolnikov, from Dostoevsky’s Crime and Punishment. I in this piece used the contrabass to simulate neighs of a horse, putting it amongst a distorted crunching sound, which with its industrial rigidness, developed into threnody-like advancing in the coda.

Double bass (4)
