When cities are too busy and minds are too bored, if you travelled here, please calm down your minds and enjoy a down-slowed Chinese Afternoon Tea. There are some 'symbolized landscapes' from my trips both in reality and in musical imaginations, which can awake some soften parts of our hearts to appreciate digital beauties and relax full hearts of tiredness (somehow...). Yes, if willing, you can also add or create some impressions near your home and share, with possibilities 'near this cup of tea', because in my mind, worlds (western and eastern) have been merged with each other too much; and some deep desires of beauties-appreciation already seeded in our hearts, in this quiet and lazy afternoon. It's our common impressions of life and knowledge.

Music Sound Files:[edit]

  • Sound imagery: Colourful Clouds Running after Moon
Words for this music in Chinese impressionism Nowadays, Impressionism Root, from France and Western European Region, has also been growing in some modernist composers' melodic creations and modifications, for the renaissance of Chinese traditional music and folk fashion. It's because of this approach's naturalism and conveniences from commons' eyes, in memorizing, re-picking up, analysing, and re-expressing imageries of landscapes, as deep impressions carrying senses of aesthetics. Here, the application of Pentatonic scale integrating with impressionism enriched composers' expressive techniques, which meets the requirements of inspirations from Chinese traditional Shan Shui painting, further, with imagery spirituality overweighing material shapes. This piece has companied my 10s more years, with the title 'Colourful Clouds Running After Moon'. The Piano transcript of this melody was modified by Chinese composer 王建中 (Jian Zhong, Wang) who collected fork impressions from South East of China (Southern Min). It's like a Chinese fairy story talking about Moon goddess's miss and waiting in one crystal castle of Moon Palace highway upon colourful clouds. You can hear that she has transformed her spiritual power to be several floating streams (phrases collected from Pentatonic scale) running directly from her sleeves (actions of arms, wrists and fingers), and magically fictionalized to be clouds' colours and textures of liquid. Then, all parts have been threaded in harmony and coherence. Meanwhile, a vocal singing of main theme is also organized as the wandering of Pentatonic scale, which is flying in the sky and being deeply stored in mind. It's accompaniment is clearly produced as in Fairy dancing style of traditional china. Yes, in some experts' eyes, this edition would also have been classed as a draft , caused by the reason that it was recorded in my classroom for educational purpose and there are really some falls and lacks waiting my bettering in the future. However, to me, currently, it was a good edition in my wellbeing situation of Music Education Research which I would like to share with more people (teaching and life-long learning), and I commented it in my smartphone as 'can be heard in ears and probably great'. 2nd draft: With life scenes, Jason mother' suggestions (for Chinese-English translation), Peer-observations from Life; and totally, it was for Music Education in a 'Life classroom
  • Sound imagery: Swordsmen in Fairy world
The application of this sound file is for realizing one Wikiversity Educational Portal of Chinese impressionist Visualization (enlightened from one course-plan discussion in British Council).Meanwhile, it has other functions, as for your entertainment time, enjoyment of a cup of afternoon-tea accompanying with photographs-watching and good-hearing of some impressions in Chinese fine music. Therefore, I made a piece of piano improvisation (Performance), according to another dream in my young teenager time and Pop music transcript.'Swordsmen in Fairy World (Legend)' - you may ask me: oh, Jason, what are you saying about? Is it about Modern or traditional Swordsmen fighting for swordsmanship from traditional western worlds, such as from Roman ... in a fairy-legend Middle Earth of Trinity, as what stated in The Lord of Rings?(Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swordsmanship; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle-earth; and, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lord_of_the_Rings) Not really, but quite similar in the history between two roots.In Great China Area, young teenagers, when coming to their ages, have also gotten one cultural complex to get away from families, wander around, run after their Kong Fu dreams and see some amazing landscapes in their periods, which are lasting for thousands years. Also, being very similar with various magical creatures and species living in Middle Earth, upon a map of Nine regions in Classic of Mountains and Seas, there also have been some magical creatures there, such as nine-headed phoenix family and Nine-tailed Fox family, and diverse races controlling natural powers from different approaches, as in naturalism methodologies, but mainly belonging to Taoism philosophy. (Wikipedia introductions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classic_of_Mountains_and_Seas;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warring_States_period) They became Swordsmen representing different approaches of Kong Fu - some to train their internal spirituality, some to train physics etc., in different 'schools', and from deserts to river-areas. They were fighting with each other for achieving a place in Jiang Hu Academy-community (Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wuxia#Jianghu); so that, they can construct different-fashions of love, friendship, family, and realize their own dreaming beliefs, faiths, freedom, democracy, humanity, reasonability, and... some even for ruling the whole worlds -"master of the wulin alliance"). Currently, in the fields of Computer & online roles-play games, Pop music, TV Drama series, films and fine arts of visualization, stories built upon this theme is still famous, as what stories from Middle-Earth. The Legend of Sword and Fairy was mainly built upon this theme. (Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Legend_of_Sword_and_Fairy).In my music list, this one collected from 4th of this series has always take a place in remembrance of my pasted young teenagers time. It is also one reason of my Education Research, English-expressing and academic Kong Fu self-reasoning till today - to see how large my Jiang Hu Universe (Middle-Earth) is. Indeed, finally, as in this melody, it can be transformed to be cosmological impressions of life meanings and universal being.Oh, sorry to say so many divergent braches, just... please take it easy as to taste a cup of afternoon tea for relaxing a busy working day, with this self-making Chinese breath. Wishing you can enjoy!

This one was only a very little river running away from home, with its 'touched & wet eyes' saying 'emotional notes from voices' appealing a 'long-lost miss' to somewhere in far distance...
  • Sound Visualization: An unknown poem of Gusu Pingtan-singing Treasure heard in a relaxing afternoon
It was a short piece of Pingtan-singing (Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzhou_Pingtan) recorded from two artists' work in a public place of old city - Suzhou (Wikipedia Introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suzhou), or called Gusu District's (Wikipedia Introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gusu_District). Why I thought it was possibly and valuably allowed to be submitted to Wikimedia Commons was because of three reasons. Firstly, it was in a Pingtan public place allowing all common travellers like me - a little Jason, to record by their own smart-phone. In this reasoning chain, they publically allowed me to record; and somehow, just focusing on this music product itself, I can be called a first maker having picked up two artists' common & improvising work without letting it disappear in an immediate way. In other words, I recorded it in the first person, who had seen it as a natural phenomenon(landscape) rather than in social network - its happening and disappearing from silence and to silence. Secondly, it was for commons who were in their trips, which met our media's faith. Thirdly, it was a real beauty of fork singing with Gusu dialects. You can feel its sweet and gentle voices softly relaxing your spirit, which made me drunk in in a whole afternoon. Male voices were bright but melodious; while, female voices were treble but mild... Pingtan was an important heritage from commons and for commons. When enjoying it, we can try to taste a cup of slow tea and understand its old fashion. Therefore, you knew, it had also recorded one of my most enjoyable time there. Those above were reasons I thought it was valuable and possible to be shared. I didn't sure after transformation, its figures were still carried. Maybe, only voices were left there. Though I didn't know the names of those two artists, I would like to send my respects to them and their old fashion. Thanks for making the world beautiful!
  • Sound Story: Mother's old stories near Christmas Day
It was recorded as the melody 'Listen to Mother's Old Story' collected from the manuscripts collection of level Grade 5th in <The Works-Collection for National Grading Tests'>, for piano education. Just see it as an artist impression, we can feel mother's tender talk to kids about old stories in the past... may it be a night-reading of storybooks or from her memories beside bed...I am very happy to introduce it, for the reason that you can hear modern piano melodic structure: prelude-introduction-development - conclusion (coda). You can also hear polyphony and counterpoint have been applied in its composition. Meanwhile, Eastern Pentatonic scale has almost communicated with Baroque Inspirations in the first theme, supplemental theme and accompaniment. Therefore, I collected this funny piece in my Wikiversity's visualization & Impressionism of China.I thought it's near Christmas Day,..., baby Jesus also had his holly mother St. Marry. Sometimes in his childhood, he might have also listened to Holly Mother's old stories in the night besides the bed... Then, imaginations began and Christmas Father brought gifts...

  • Ferry dreams in common impressionism
This series of Impressionist photographs were made in a warm spring night during my family trip for tombs-clearance and ancestors-remembrance. Though it was a sad period and some senses of sadness had also been lasting till now, about the departures of my family members, relatives, and my nice teachers ..., in that spring night, when setting off some pressures, resting my sorrow minds into a ferry chair and leaning my head to the side of father's shoulder, this impressionist imagery appeared beautifully there, silence but nice - like a crystal castle fantastically standing up, in the deep night... Oh, it was so lonely, but still tried to light the whole darkness... like a lost star (one pop song) to warm & light that whole spring night... by it's own crystal lights, and a crystal heart... Then, I picked up this impression. From my eyes, it's not made by my own ability, but natural accompaniments - the soft breeze, those lights, waves, diffuse reflections from water surface, and spreading in dreaming colours... then, coming in front of me the unconscious fragments ... oh! beautiful, like a impressionist painting, or a piece of Debussy's melody under a huge background of universe... I don't know... but, I can only appreciate its beauties from a common passenger's eyes...May it be I can never have chances to really touch those landscapes in my channel;May it be when they are touched, then, a spring dream will be broken and woke up into pieces - never get back;but, thanksgiving, thanks to a peaceful night blessed there, with crystal castle standing in front of my eyes and my dream...

I forgot where it was, but subtropical (Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subtropics) plants accompanying with water had left beautiful impressions in Jason's mind. You knew, other places in the same latitudes around our earth, you cannot feel so wet and warm climates.

His life might be ignored by others. But, just that moment, under sunshine, it was vividly blooming beside one tree nearby West Lake. Compared with West Lake, maybe no one would like be attracted by his vitality. However, his was still smiling under a fuzzed green background, to celebrate his universal being, as a significant impression, in Jason's mind.
Flowers were blooming and twinkling under a huge deep green background, as stars...

  • Gusu Journey:
1st: did you know Venice? Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VeniceVery similar, It was East Venice, but living in the world of White-black ink painting. Every day, you would need to take a boating out, like a walk...
3rd: it was in autumn, but the full scene' vitality hasn't lost too much. Even, you can hear their breath and heart-beating echoing from lake's mirror. Then, we will know they were still living and dancing, to face a coming winter. I believed that every natural painting had its protecting angel, depending on whom, they could live longer...
22rd: it's said under this pond, there was a mysterious sword treasure of Wu king Helu waiting us to explore. Indeed, what I was attracted wasn't that, but the first beauty of China Xi Shi has washed her hair when standing over the top bridge. But how? Or, how long did she have a hair which could get to the surface of water continuously? No matter how, she was real the first beauty in my memory who could make fish felt ashamed and went down to the bottom of water, long as thousands years ago. Indeed, in my memory, she was very similar with Helen of Troy (Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_of_Troy), whose beauties could easily make wars between two countries and destroy one.
5th: could you get a sense of sir Monet's Water lilies series? Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_Lilies_(Monet_series)Just, it was in autumn that flowers had been out... a pity. But, you can still feel their strong lives and beautiful higher gestures. If they could be in analogy with gentlemen, I thought standing still until the last minute of lives was their contributions of Life's meaning.
  • China Impressionism - In the season of Fishing Harvest, it's a real & big smile on people's face

Common people's knowledge: It's an old story saying that: when autumn comes, public sea in North will be opened to fishing men and their wide shoulders; then, black fishes (and other species) will be listed in bear's harvest - flying back to your dinner table, only if you are praying to the peace of a Crystal Sea-heart... I have fulfilled my praying, and in one night...I found numberless boats twinkling short lights as stars distributing from the sea outside my window to the boundaries of sky, which made the darkness as a pearls-curtain, beautifully decorated there. Eh, getting it, I told myself: it's a season of Sea-openness for hard-working fishing men... (The left-second picture in the middle can show us that night what I saw; meanwhile, in the right top picture, in which Jason was pictured with something in the darkness, indeed, it was a fishing boat under the construction... )The other day, following a visit to Dragon-king's Head-pool, I can see numberless boats in port and eat my fish. Indeed, it was merely an impression of that scenery that when thinking of some indications in life, I knew a fishing harvest was coming. My true life was shown as the right side of this photography visualization. On average, in each two or three days, I would swim in the blue sea as I introduced in the past and wandering in the street with family members. I thought - swimming and wandering -they had some similarities - no purpose and for self-relaxing and some beautiful landscapes to nourish eyes... You saw, one day, I brought one of my favorite certificates in online courses to the seaside - It was about music and politics which wasn't from my nature. but I had to insist on until its heart-inside-completion. I gave myself a 'LIKE' Dear friends, you knew it was hard to maintain a peaceful situation in seaside's areas, as in my hometown and yours... Lord was the provider of everything, only if you and I, as commons, paid our labours working in 'Ask, Seek and Knock' out your own life of happiness. Please don't break worlds' main peace of development, as many sins we did in last century... They wouldn't be forgiven in the final judgement...By slowing down a boring mood and opening your heart as what's like in Sea's embrace... we could fly to our natural height of heavenly sky.

This image file was made in the day before last day while travelling in Dragon King's Pool, shopping some seafoods and local vegetables in Countryside Farmer's Fair and watching a fishing harvest situation in fishing pool. Meanwhile, we were very joyful that I bought some Japanese Spanish mackerels ( Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_Spanish_mackerel; or to say, Chinese seerfish...Oh, sorry, I cannot tell the differences among those sub-branches of this fish. I think: only coming into mouth, and the quality of meat could tell me the differences.)I and my mother together think it's a really annual happy situation we were in. Then, I transformed myself to be a cultural phenomena & self-model. By being together with a fishing boat (from childhood, I felt very happy to picture myself with some boats, bigger ships and even huge cruises...), I can get a sense of Autumn in September was like in a season of Fishing Harvest. You see, my smile was really joyful and peaceful!I would like share this image as 'Joyfulness from Fishing Harvest' to face my monthly photo challenge of WIKIMEDIA COMMONS Jason M. C., Han (discusscontribs) 05:18, 13 September 2018 (UTC)
  • Northwest China
Indeed, the impression of this dream wasn't from this year, but reserved from last year. It was also not about a spring, but Jason in a hot and boring summer. However, it's a spring morning today when I re-embraced this piece of memory, accompanying with a single song of alone journey somewhere around the world, from Paris' café to Venice's movie, etc. My heart began wandering around. I found what green brushes are growing out is a Arabic Spring. Oh, Jason, are you stupidly joking? Have you ever seen a real spring grown from a desert? No, sorry, but I have some references from others... What imageries described in sir Debussy' Première Arabesque (Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Claude_Debussy ),and especially in my birth place Ning Xia, there is a landscape named Sha Po Tou (The head of deserts, made by my uncle, 2016) summarizing my boyhood memories about deserts and people's rough personalities for fighting against bad climate and growing green life upon golden wildness. (Wikipedia introduction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ningxia; https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shapotou_District) Following it, my mind-travelling can obtain this impression - so warm but clear,to embrace a Arabic Style Spring, blooming from the bottom of heart-desert.
