Forms of falling dust

for prepared yangqin and electronics

The electronics contain fragments from my ongoing collaboration with Beiguan musicians Liu Yu-Hsiu and Li Chi-Chien; yangqin samples recorded by Allen Otte; and recordings from my work with the Moog 55 Modular synthesizer at the fmsbw Elektronisches Studio. These were then further processed together in Csound.
