Run, by Mei-ling Lee, is a journey exploring the depths of fear, uncertainty, and the inevitability of death. Written for voice and double bass processed live through Kyma, the composition confronts our deepest fears about life and death, and contemplates the nature of “letting go.” Through this sonic journey, the composition explores what it means—in the midst of the transitory nature of life—to try to hold on to the ephemeral, the intangible. One aspect of this question might be: do the dead hold on to the world, or is it actually the living who won’t let go?
