This music was inspired by the interplay of light and shadow, in both the literal and figurative senses. Each is necessary to the other, like Daoism's yin and yang or Empedocles' Love and Strife. In opposition, they create a drama of contrast and contradiction. Mixed together, they produce a spectrum of shadings in varying proportions. The same holds true of music: Tone, amplitude, density and above all mood as encoded in harmony find parallels in the different degrees of admixture of dark and light. At the center is an opalescent zone in which opposites are subsumed and conserved at the same time.
