"The Late Sound" is a selection of poems by Ju Xiaofu which forms a creative journey that started with an intimate yet penetrating voice rising to mesmerizing, unbridled electric power. It is a testimony to the artistic endeavor of a musician who awoke in silence and melancholy to a certain truth, and stepped, lantern-in-hand, into a dark inner world of polarizing glory and destruction. Ju leads us to the imperceptible moment when the hands of a pianist are suspended in mid-air before bringing life to a note or a chord; in the process he creates negative space: a vacuum narrow yet infinite, a realm for imagination to thrive with a scarred heart as sheer evidence of human effort.
