Insight II (2015) by Stephen Yip
for flute, bass clarinet, violin, cello, and piano
West Coast premiere; 2016 Earplay Donald Aird Composers Competition winner

This piece was inspired by three major Buddhist ideas: Non-objectivity, Idea-lessness, and Non-attachment as basis. Although many urban cities are hustle and bustle, there are many different perceptive insights to see, to touch, or to listen to all things around us in order to reach another dimension inside.

Concept and idea:

— S. Y.
