Performance Introduction︱[ Be Tones ]
Since the beginning,
the universe is a system of constant vibrations,
Inorganically or organically, disorderly or orderly.
With infinite energy,
it never rests in the task of creation and destruction,
dynamically and circuitiously playing sonatas of cohesion and diffusion.
Relative to a vast expanse,
Subtle tones and rhythms are acting and reacting to the transient vibration of human consciousness.
Our tongues, mouths, limbs and bodies.
It sounds and looks so natural between
the hiding and blending, the exploring and computing,
the duality of Yin and Yang, the process of formation, existence, decay and disappearance.
It generates more possibilities and levels of life,
hence all in one.
