Xiaogang Xiang: The Collision of Colors
Colors can be seen everywhere, while different people perceive them in different ways. General people would view colors as the psychological cognition of different emotions, whereas fine artists would consider them as the most important elements or weapons to utilize in their artistic works. Colors are somehow irrelevant to music itself, however, I think they can be expressed and presented using musical language. In this piece of music, I take advantage of electronic music techniques, and try to convey how the different colors interact with each other via the setup of three primary colors, such as red, yellow, and blue, and have the colors intertwined, collided, moreover, developing new colors. The goal of composing this piece is to explore some new sounds, which are “controlled by colors,” and find out some relationships between colors and music.
