A thousand years pass by in a glance, a million things are actually just following the fate. “Yuen” is an abstract concept in Chinese Culture, it means the connection between people and incidents, and the relationship or affections in between.
Minimalism is used in this piece. On the left hand of the piano, only one single note keeps repeating, like heartbeat or footstep. On the right hand part, only a few notes are used, the variation lies in the depth of the sound, like calligraphy.
This piece is like our life, we could meet many people in our life, we should appreciate what life and the “Yuen” bring us.
