Notes on this piece
This piece, scored for an ensemble of four contrabasses, was the output of Zhiye Peng’s
collaboration with visual artist Yunyun Wu (
吴芸芸 ) on her video “ 杞人梦 ” (literally “The
Dream of a Man in Qi State”).

Qi (
) was a small state in ancient China that existed from the beginning of Shang ( )
Dynasty (16th century BCE) until the beginning of the Warring States period, c.445 BCE.

The title of the video is from an old Chinese idiom “
杞人忧天 ”, which tells of a man in
Qi often needlessly anxious about impossible or inconse- quential matters. Once he began
to fear that the sky would fall and crash on his head. He became so anxious that he could
neither eat nor sleep.

The scenario sketched by Yunyun Wu divided the video into six episodes, which correspond
with the score:
I. White
II. Light Grey
III. Medium Grey
IV. Black
V. Grey
VI. White
Double bass (4)
