When a travelling Chinese orchestra is passing through, the drums then the cymbals are heard in the distance, sounding out of the silence. Next, the high woodwind ring out. As the orchestra moves closer the melody is heard, the pitch rising gradually until the players are presnt, playing at full volume. The melody, using an old Chinese scale, is accompanied by the percussion. As the orchestra rides past, the pitch of the melody drops a little and as the distance increases, eventually only the high woodwind and finally drums can be heard.
