Kampung and City 甘榜与城市

Instrumentation: (Chinese Orchestra) 221, 2021, 2211, 111, Plucking Instruments, 5 Perc, Strings

Duration: 13 minutes

Program Note:

“Kampung” means “village” in Malay. I grew up in the capital, Kuala Lumpur - a big city. My only impression of the villages, such as the early morning dew, and never-ending rice paddy, were all only from watching television or my own imagination. In 2014, when I was on the way to Borobudur from Yogyakarta, all of those vague impressions suddenly became real and were spread out in front of me. I felt as if I was standing on a border, with kampung on one side and the city on the other. This experience had a deep impact on me, and made me forget how busy the life in the city is. Experiencing this contrast has also enabled me to realise that kampung and city are always bonded to each other.

 

“Kampung and City” has three sections: slow section, fast section and coda. 

中文简介:

甘榜, Kampung,即马来文“乡村”的译文。

我自小在吉隆坡市长大,虽说曾去过乡下,但对乡村的印象并不深刻。所谓晨曦凝聚的露珠和一望无际的稻田,更多的来自于电视或者想象。直到2014年在印尼日惹通往波罗浮屠的路上,那些曾经的画面突然跃于眼前,把我带进了甘榜与城市相互交织的地平线。那情景深深地打动了我,冲刷着我的心灵,让我忘记了城市的喧嚣与忙碌的生活,内心也随之沉静了下来。正是甘榜与城市相互拥抱的这种现实,让我得到了更加深刻的感受和领悟。

《甘榜与城市》全曲由三大段组成,慢板、快板与尾声。
