Notes

  • Program notes: 

    The material of "Lang Lao" comes from the early folk funeral culture and customs
    of Taiwan, which has been circulated for centuries. It belongs to the Taoist rituals in
    folk religious beliefs. Today, this folk custom has been lost.
    When this ceremony is held, the card of the deceased will be invited to the table.
    At the beginning of the ceremony, the wizard invites the nearby undead to come to
    watch the performance, in the hope that the deceased can make friends in another
    world, let the ghosts watch the performance. Help the dead to go to the bright road of
    heaven.
    The Chinese cymbals used by the Taoist Master during the ceremony is the only
    source of sound.After being included in the recording software, the sound modulation
    function provided in the software is used to change the sound source of the recording
    to a variety of different sounds, and 12 soundtracks are used, and the modulated
    sounds are stacked, copied, reversed, The editing is completed by changing the speed
    and the like. The music structure is divided into five paragraphs with the theme of "
    Lang Lao ". All the sounds come from the two motivations of A and B at the
    beginning of the first paragraph of music.
    Uses four channels to create the effect of sound moving in phase change, making
    the sound fade away, asymptotic, left to right, right to left, front to back, back to front,
    one voice shift, multiple The effect of moving parts at the same time has reached
    more than 30 places. For example: 1'09", gradually shifting from the right front
    channel to the left front - left rear - right rear, then the sound is getting farther away,
    It symbolizes that the Taoist Master is going around the venue to perform spells.
    Detailed sound displacement content, please See " Lang Lao " four-channel sound
    movement time record.
