Lineae

​線

2014

for string quartet and dancers  (15')

Lineae (Latin for ‘lines’) was written for string quartet and dancers. The four movements of this 15-minute piece express the idea of lines in different characters to be choreographed for three dancers. Musically, the four movements include a flowing, minimalistic opening movement, a motionless second movement, a fast and running third movement, and a desolate closing movement suggesting a recapitulation of the opening ideas.

Lineae is commissioned by the Hong Kong Composers’ Guild for Musicarama 2014 with support from CASH Music Fund.

《線》是寫給弦樂四重奏及舞者,此作品分有四個樂章共十五分鐘,讓三位舞者表達不同特性的線條。在音樂上,四個樂章分別是流暢而簡約、靜止、明快、與及荒涼,而第四個樂章重述首個樂章的部份樂句。

《線》是由香港作曲家聯會委約,為2014音樂新文化音樂節而寫,並由CASH音樂基金支持。
