The performance Ten Songs of Change is a
Concert Poem. It is based on the Yi Jing, the
ancient Chinese book of wisdom, possibly the
oldest book on the planet. Like other monuments
of human culture, it was a cooperative effort
spanning many centuries. The oldest ideas in the book were probably handed down by the elders of nomadic tribes. These early authors observed the stars and tides, plants and animals, various cycles of natural events, as well as patterns of relationship in families and societies, the practice of business, craft of government and the grim art of warfare and the eternal human dramas of love, ambition, conflict and honour. And instead of creating a fixed chart of the cosmos, they put together a guide to the way things change: a fluid interconnected system of relations: the 8 trigrams and 64 hexagrams.
