Before The Show
It's basically a story about creation of universe. Imagine how a dad feels when he prepares a surprising gift for his child. Creator of universe is creating the world for you and he is excited and can't wait to show it to you.
There is nothing but one single tone and one single light. It is getting more complex and stars are bursting out. On single piano sound gets more complex string sounds that are tuning for harmony. Tons of stars transforms to heavy rain. It's blessing rain for you who are very unique.
Han brings you a powerful breeze. Imagine it is flying through endless grasses and trees. It gives life to all the natures. Classical piano and crossover jazz run to energetic climax with synthesized sounds. Emotional and dramatic.
Basically there is version one of this music which is more simple. Han performed it in his past two media art exhibitions. After the two shows, he rearranged the music to add more emotional climax and now it sounds much more dramatic.
The Breeze is also used for his interactive installation art, LamX as a part of a light show. For 'Hero', the second story of the light show.
