Description:
Recently I have been obsessed with consciousness which is one of the profoundest mysteries in modern science among human beings. Some scientists believe that consciousness is not only limited to our physical brain activities, but it is also a part of the spiritual force and nature that transcends space and time existing in cosmos, and that its existence is separated from our physical body. In some cases, higher form of consciousness has been experienced in another dimension of reality when travelling out of our physical body. The music reflects my personal feeling towards the mystical realms of consciousness. Throughout the piece, economic use of pitches, the gradual participation of different pitches in different layers by canonic procedure along with various suspended dramatic changes and transformations of musical elements, are the prominent feature describing the transcendence of consciousness in suspended time and space.
