The purpose of this paper is to explore the aesthetic value of the gong and drum language, a style of percussion in traditional Chinese opera, and its use in modern composition. I will compose a symphony to demonstrate how the gong and drum sutra is practiced in modern composition. Finally, I will describe how racism can be countered through the construction of aesthetics.
