He Xuntian is one of China's true musical individualists. Slightly older than the famous "Class of '78" He began his musical career composing for the Chongqing Propaganda Troupe. Following the Cultural Revolution, He studied at the Sichuan Conservatory under Gao Weijie (whose other student's included the Chinese Avant Garde guzheng player, Wu Fei). Under Gao's teaching, He developed his own unique compositional voice, embracing both the extremes of modernism and experimentalism as well as a passionate devotion to China's unique musical traditions. "Four Dreams for Electric Erhu and Orchestra" is an outstanding example of He's extraordinary approach to music as sound and texture, and utilizes a compositional strategy of his own creation.

He Xuntian was born in Suining, a small city of Sichuan Province. He studied music theory by himself at the early age of eight, and began to write music. He graduated from the Composition Department of the Sichuan Conservatory of Music in 1982. He created the RD method of musical composition, and became the first composer that based his composition on his own theory. His major works include the orchestral works "Four Dreams", and "Telepathy"; chamber music such as "Two of the Earthly Branches", "Phonism", "Imagine the Sound"; music for traditional Chinese orchestra including "Caprice of Dabo River"; and three New Age song albums composed for the singer Dadawa - "Yellow Children", "Sister Drum", "Voice from the Sky", etc.
