WORDS is a multimedia piano work with spoken words and visuals. The vocal part consists of an aural collage of Miss Luo, reciting in Mandarin and English, a poem written by herself, about the story of her grandfather, a composer during the late 20th century in China. The interplay between the audio collage, the video, and the piano part, create a multimedia composition that immerses the audience in a blanket of enticing, reflective sound-visual experiences.
