Guanlan series stone lithograph, detail
'As dusk slipped into night and daylight loosened its hold, the first tentative sounds were released; something to test the air, a few notes of a familiar melody he'd sung before. And then the concert began. No longer drifting towards sleep, I was held captive by this nocturnal musician's effortless fugue. Maybe it was only for some minutes, or it could have been for an hour that this seemingly endless improvisation played out into the night.'
