How can we distinguish the middle between light and darkness? The series <Meditations> is composed of a designated chord and many different points of view. The way of viewing the chord and composing is somehow similar to the way of my meditation, and that's where the title came from. A chord and its transfigurations could be sounds that vary from different to similar. Like the light and darkness, their relationship with each other is ambiguous when it's in the middle of it.
