One Undivided

Sun Keting x CAN x LSO x Silk



We live in a world that is created by mind-made opposites. The world of words, language, thoughts and concepts, is a dualistic world of apparent opposites. Non-duality points to the essential wholeness of life. A wholeness which exists here and now, prior to any apparent separation. Despite the compelling appearance of separation and diversity, there is only one universal essence. Having been interested in Hindu and Buddhist philosophy for a few years, I recently started to recognise how non-duality embodies almost every matter of our living world. In our daily life, this wholeness includes both the non-dual aspect as well as duality. This profound philosophy inspired me to compose this piece for two String Quartets, one from the West and another from the East. Oneness is all there is – and we are all included and undivided. I hope to create a piece of music that tells something which words cannot describe. Everything is simply as it is.
