A World Premiere Piano Concert with Multimedia.
Pianist Ting Luo gives the World Premieres of a series of works for solo piano and immersive visuals by living composers in Bay Area and beyond, including Danny Clay, Chatori Shimizu, and Jean Ahn, in collaboration with visual artists including Charles Woodman and Jo Ho.
‘’External and internal spaces began to blend, allowing dreams, memories, and fragments to be unearthed and brought into the light. ‘’ - Nicki Davis (NAC Visual Collaborator)
The project relates to the aesthetics of space and the sound living in the space, with the use of extended piano technique, tape, and electronics, representative works including How Deep is the Valley, Hypothesis, and Cornkind. Artists explore the ongoing and continuous states and changes in everyday life and discover one's awareness towards self-realization, imagination, and responses towards the surrounding, representative works including Around, LE NUOVE FORME and Six Threads. The program seeks to speak for the past and current in the contexts of culture, language, and history, representative works including WORDS, FOOTSTEPS, and Mu Absence.
The entire program is formed organically and freely from each individual artist's inspiration and aesthetics.
