Yau May-kay’s “The Road before me”

 

I. Q&A


1) Briefly introduce your commissioned work. 

'The Road Before Me' was composed during busiest time of year 2015. 

2) How did the image/video inspire you to write this piece? 

The video exactly reflects my commuting in Hong Kong - its repetitiveness, its tediousness ... 

3) Briefly share with us the composing techniques or styles you used in the piece. 

Minimalism is used in this piece and I think it describes the video and my thoughts really well. 

II. About the Composer - Yau May-kay
 


Favorite place in Hong Kong: I like hiking in Fanling, it overlooks the whole area of Fanling and the mainland which is breathtaking. 
Favorite composer/music: J.S. Bach 
Favorite director/movie: Abbas Kiarostami
