In Remnants 遺跡, Yin Xiao interprets and performs five ancient Chinese songs for Guqin juxtaposed with John Cage's 4'33". The title acknowledges the music's voyage and survival through the deep annuls of history with pieces estimated to have been composed as early as 300 CE.
Yin Xiao would like to acknowledge the invaluable conversations with John Thompson and the reference knowledge available on his website silkqin.com.
Yin Xiao acknowleges the remarkable work with silk strings of 清源 Qing Yuan whose strings are used in this recording.
Lastly, he extends his greatest admiration to Xu Yachong for his loyal friendship, brilliant craft, and leadership of the team at MoQuQinFang, all of whom are responsible for the instruments on which the album was performed.
Yin Xiao's traditional guqin performances are also available for streaming in Youtube and BiliBili.
