I returned to my hometown and recorded Mongolian folk music—Mongolian Long Song and Mongolian Throat Singing. I wanted to combine technology and traditional folk music and write an electronic piece based on Mongolian vocal materials. I used what I’ve sampled, manipulated the sounds, composed the music, gathered the videos together and created this multimedia piece—On Horseback. The names of the four movements—Sand, Cloud, Water, and Fire—are four elements that I chose to represent the lifestyle in Inner Mongolia.
This thesis covers the journey of how I created this piece. I’ve explored many variations of technology such as sound sampling, mixing, and video editing. I’ve also gained the chance to bring traditional Mongolian folk vocal music out of my hometown and present it in my own work.
