Bamboo Silk Strings and Wood

December 10, 2009 Featuring new compositions by Rui Shi Zhuo <Natural World>

A collaborative visual soundscape with local film artist Ken Smith and a guest appearance by the Vancouver Grand Choir


Ji Rong Huang: erhu (Chinese violin) / Gui Lian Liu: pipa (Chinese lute) /Zhi Min Yu: ruan (Chinese guitar)/ Wei Li: zheng (Chinese zither)/Zhong Xi Wu – suona & sheng (Chinese oboe & reed organ) / Charlie Liu: dizi (Chinese flute)/ Richard Cheung: cello/ Peggy Tong: bass/ John Bernard: marimba/ Gao Chao, Gao Yue: percussions/ Vancouver Chinese Grand Choir (Voices)

The new composition is called Sound, Light, Water with Bamboo, Silk strings and Wood. This piece attempts to reconcile silk instruments in a contemporary soundscape depicting the Canadian landscape.

This concert will incorporate multi-media projections by contemporary film artist Ken Smith, displaying a collection of picturesque visuals depicting Canadian imagery overlain with Chinese ideographs. The images combine ideals of the romanticized Chinese calligraphy and aspects of human activity, ecology and expansion through an immigrants point of view.

The characters chosen are symbols for both object and sounds, and through a combination of signs depict a lithe thought-picture that is not only called up by these images, but also a vivid soundscape played by the ensemble.

The work aims to challenge the assumptions of word – image dialectics through the incorporation and comparison of Chinese ideographs.
