About this work:
The title "Precipitation" means three phenomenons: moisture, rain drops, and impulsiveness. They are the three sections in the piece. The piece starts with a slow introduction, which depicts the condensation of atmospheric water vapor that is pulled down by gravity and gradually accumulates on the surface of an object such as a window of glass; then, music goes to a scherzo-like section desctibing the random tain drops of a summer rain shower. This piece (especially the introduction) is inspired by the process of Chinese brush painting, which is a secluded posture with profundity. The motives, intervals and tone color are all developed from the introduction.
