Spell (aka. Ling, 凌), for solo Alto Saxophone, is commissioned by Taiwanese saxophonist Chun-Hao Ku (顧鈞豪) for his performance in International Saxophone Congress in 2012. The inspiration of Spell is by one of the Taiwan Taoist rituals – Chi Ji (起乩): it refers to a ritualistic process conducted by the Taoist priest who transforms himself from an ordinary person to the one full of the spirit of divinity, and then delivers messages to the prayers. The form of this piece is shaped by two simultaneous voices which project the dual identities between the chant of the priest and the spell transcended from the spirit. Each voice focuses on distinct articulations and techniques developing in the flow of time, such as slap-tongue pizzicato, churning broken chord, and multiphonics.
Spell is included in the saxophone repertoire "Londeix Guide To The Saxophone Repertoire, 1844-2012" edited by Jean-Marie Londeix (2012, Bordeaux, France).
