Hi,Yan Jun and Zhu Wenbo,
It sounds great! I like the title. It leaves people to think what is the meaning about music in the moment. And it is exactly what we are working on!
I will think about it.
I am in Montreal now, have met Eric today;)
We are fine in Montreal. It is a nice city.
I have performed tow times. One short piece is done spontaneous at Eric's events,. Another piece is at a studio.
Possibly can I select the recording from the trip for the compilation.
Yes, this trip, we have not been in the north america. So we decide to do it.
Like vacation, visiting, meeting people and also some performing,but not too much...
It is nice, Chen Che wants to play the piece which I did at last Sally can't dance festival.
I have arranged it and we will play it. Plus MAImai will join in to the New York sessions.
Huangshan is a coincidence. We have had it without planning. But we think it is a place good for working where is with energy and reality, no context with modern art. Maybe it is not interested for all the artists, but if someone like it, is it a real place.
Composition for me means organizing the sound material, but is the improvisation not?
Painting, photography is a material, but is the music/sound not?
I just try what I can;)
Here is also very hot that I have not thought before.
Berlin is cool, enjoy the city. And send me also some tracks for the Lake radio.
about the work:
"Recently am i interested specially in "vibration", as the title, the piece is a practice to produce the vibration. Certainly is the vibration a basic
theory for reeds instrument to produce the tone, but it is also the basic form of the sound. So for me to practice the vibration means to thinking
about how to produce the tone and how the form of sound exist. And one practice is on the study to the insect that you can hear it in the recording.
It was recorded in Shanghai at my home.
It is a hard situation for artist/musician in China. But some people think there is big energy here which inspirit the artist. The thing has always two sides. In China you can become confused and you can also become insistent.
I have built an organization, it names "Where is the Zeitgeist?" Editing Office. And the label "Where is the Zeitgeist?" is the part of it. And it is also the work to edit the "Zeitgeist". At the prolog to the label have i wrote : in any time, there are artists being alienated, working out of step with their peers. Never belonging to the present nor the mainstream might let them disappear in the history, but they may also be found in the retracement. Growing against the trend of the time, their value will be acknowledged in the time they belong. The Editing Office of "Where is the Zeitgeist?" is not trying to objectively edit the spirit of the age we live in, but to document and compile the alien spirits of our time.
So i think what important is to give the question and do something after thinking. It seems it has a big question, but it focus exactly on the individual."
