Sensitivity was written for Ardemus Saxophone Quartet. The music is inspired by a series of artworks by German contemporary artist Heike Schmidt. The artwork reflects the sensitivity of the artist’s inner conflicts of thoughts, feelings and emotions, and these are characterized by contrasted colors, lines and shapes in the artworks. Thus, the music expresses the duality of feelings and emotions in terms of different musical gestures, parameters and materials. Mysterious and meditative gestures feature the preliminary section, and yet occasionally juxtaposing with dramatic and contrasting materials during the course of the piece. Those materials develop and transform organically in a variety of stylistic manners in terms of pitch materials as well as rhythmic parameter. Generally speaking, the sustained and atmospheric materials in the piece correspond to the upper part of the artworks which are characterized by dense colors, while the dramatic, repetitive, and minimalistic materials correspond to the lower part of the artworks, in which lines and transparency are the key components.
