Frissons I and II are composed for Kia Hui Tan with admiration and respect for her musicality and muscianship, and dedicated to Eddy Chong, a true champion of new music in Singapore. While Frissons I is through-composed, Frissons II is a musical landscape for one or more players to explore. Its length is not determined by the composer but is to be decided by the performer either pre-planned before a performance or ad lib during the performance.
