Lee Mingwei devised Sonic Blossom while caring for his mother as she was recuperating from surgery. As classical music enthusiasts, the pair found solace in listening to Schubert’s Lieder, a set of arrangements for piano and voice. In a period of the artist’s life when the prospect of mortality was immediate and real, the Lieder represent a fleeting moment of tranquility whose beauty is compounded by its ephemerality.
