Longing

Thy collar (Zi Jin 子衿) from The Book of Poems (诗经)
Verdant is your collar; melancholic is my heart.
Even if I cannot go to meet you, why do you not give me a message?
Verdant is your jade; melancholic is my thought.
Even if I cannot go to meet you, why do you not come to meet me?
Wandering back and forth at the gate of the city.
Not seeing you for one day; the day feels as long as three autumns to me.

Multimedia Composer Fu Xiao finds often inspiration in the chinese culture. One example of this is her piece Longing, for Flute, Percussion, Electronics and Video.
