Programme Notes

These four pieces were originally written for a re-arranging project of Charlie Chaplin’s silent film with a string quartet in 2010, then later rearranged into a duet version for clarinet and piano. These pieces were composed by improvising on the piano while watching Chaplin’s film, capturing the gesture and touch of Jazz music; focusing on actor’s facial expression; imitating actor’s movements and emotions through musical colors. After all, I tidied up my musical ideas into string quartet then blend it into the film. Therefore during the composing process, I actually started with piano.

這四首樂曲本來是為差利卓別靈的默片重新配上弦樂四重奏音樂而寫。後來改成單簧管與鋼琴的版本。

這四首樂曲基本上是即興創作而成。我一邊看著差利的電影, 一邊彈奏鋼琴, 以爵士樂的動態和觸感為主線, 用音樂模仿演員的動態和神韻, 然後再把我彈奏的片段整理成為弦樂四重奏作品, 配合在影片中。所以其實在創作的過程中, 反而是先以鋼琴著手。
