Excellent interview guys! You sure did handle that quite elegantly
I enjoyed Miss. Aivi Tran's personal description of "Corridors of Time" very much.
I believe what I enjoyed most about this interview is Aivi treating music with one's own narrative when performing/composing. A personal anecdote in regards to performance:
One of my piano pieces I was required to learn on piano was Chopin's prelude in E minor
. I had the notes down, but my issue was creating tension and release towards the end of the piece at that mighty climax. My piano teach told me she saw the piano piece as two persons arguing with each other, raising in tension in dialogue until the climax, where the other person gives up and has to cope that things probably are never going to change, but remain as they are--leaving a very bitter ending. My interpretation was a bit more gloomier, as I narrated it as someone sinking to the bottom of a deep, deep ocean, trying to swim to the surface, only to drown at the climax and sink to the ocean's depth for the remainder of the piece, fading away into the darkness of the ocean's depth.
Then there's Satie. ;)
What made me think of it as a sinking, drowning episode is the descent of the chords in the left hand, as you'll notice in the video, especially in the last chords.
