Wah Yan College, Kowloon - In the Hourless Forest

In the Hourless Forest

Dreams always visit us in various moods. This creative work employs polymetre in ternary form and is set in a solitary and mystery forest.

The first part, in quadruple time, features a call-and-response dialogue between the viola and the violin. The two melodies interact in a diminished interval pattern. The clarinet then joins and creates tension in the music. In the second part, a 5/8 metre is used in ‘2+3’ and ‘3+2’ patterns. The music is first played by the piano and the vocal part follows, intensifying the mood of mystery. The final part recalls the conversation between the viola and the violin. It concludes with the gradual entry of each instrument and builds up to the climax of the piece.
