Audiovisual Frontiers

UCR.JPG

Time: November 20, 2021- (PT)

Location: UCR  Audiovisual Music Virtual Exhibition

Role: Composer

Audiovisual Frontiers intends to promote contemporary audiovisual creation. We sought audiovisual works that extend the frontiers and possibilities of audiovisual art. We invited works that unfold concepts, tools that evoke thought and discussion, as well as works emphasizing experience and being in the world. We looked for audiovisual works from a diversity of perspectives, aesthetics, affects, movements, and sensations that push the limits of the audiovisual. We are interested in engaging with current categories of audiovisual creation such as the cinematic arts, music, gaming, and poetry, but especially works exploring new paths of research and development.

The first iteration of Audiovisual Frontiers features over 80 works from 125+ artists, composers, filmmakers, and programmers from around the world. 

 

Audiovisual Frontiers is a collaborative virtual project between the UCR Department of Music and UCR ARTS. It is organized by Paulo C. Chagas and Nikolay Maslov, and realized with the tremendous support of Sam C. Shin, Ethan Castro, Eric Barreto, and Susan Ossman.

《印象.臺灣》音樂會- 社區巡演

Time: November 19-26, 2021 (Taipei Standard Time, GMT+8)

Locations: 輔仁大學, 中山大學, 高雄醫學大學, 中鋼總部

Role: Composer

巴洛克獨奏家樂團為觀眾再次帶來今年廣受好評的年度展演《印象.臺灣》音樂會,歡迎大家前來觀賞演出,跟著我們一起感受屬於臺灣的印象
────
▸1930到1990年經典的臺灣歌謠 
台東調、流浪到淡水、空笑夢、杯底不可飼金魚、金包銀、青春嶺、滿山春色、寶島曼波、對花、舊情綿綿、阮若打開心內的門窗、春花望露、雙雁影、望你早歸、桃花過渡

About the album: From the Japanese occupation to the beginning of self-rule, from the setting of martial law to the opening up of a free society, Taiwan and its music have undergone changes, much like the people that live there. The island has accommodated multiple ethnicities and cultures, and its songs have similarly condensed around these outside influences. Over these past 70 years, the Taiwanese people have sung songs of praise for their homeland. In their lyrics and music, one can hear their joys and despairs, their springs and autumns. This album celebrates this musical record of the people through 13 classic popular songs adapted in four concertos: Wanderlust, Youth in Spring, Autumnal Amours, and Vernal Amor. Their topics vary from love and passion to natural beauty and the ups and downs of life, expressed in solo and in accompaniment. These songs of Taiwan’s youthful spring are combined skillfully with romantic Western forms into a masterly image of Taiwan that both conserves the past while creating it anew.

Reimagining Accessibility and Inclusivity in Virtual Events (Casting Light #3)

July 28, 2021

"Why not use the positive aspects of digital platforms to create something totally new and free from unnecessary comparisons, or reimagine our existing platforms in ways that intentionally diversify experiences? How can we transform our educational and performance spaces in more equitably accessible and equally inclusive ways?"


In the third installment of ACF and I Care if You Listen (.com)'s Casting Light series, Michele Cheng speak with artists about their experiences with virtual concerts over the last year and imagines a hybrid future for concerts, festivals, and lessons. With streaming, "institutions have a unique opportunity to address the many problems that have been ignored long before the pandemic," Cheng writes.

We will present both Karlheinz Stockhausen's Unbegrenzt (Unlimited) from his 1968 cycle Aus den sieben Tagen (From the seven days), a kind of music he would refer to as "intuitive music", and the world première of Michele Cheng’s Whose Turn Is It Anyway, composed for the SNE.

April 6, 2021

I'm excited to share that “A Different Reality”― an intermedia project for solo marimba and electronics written for the incomparable percussionist/collaborator Ian Rosenbaum― has been selected as part of the New Music USA #CreatorDevelopmentFund. This project is an expansion of a work initially commissioned and premiered by National Sawdust. I’m so thankful to National Sawdust for the initial opportunity to carry out this work and to New Music USA for the support. Can’t wait to bring this project to fruition!

The project is supported by New Music USA’s Creator Development Fund with major support from Howard Gilman Foundation, The Amphion Foundation, Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, Sony Music Group, Cheswatyr Foundation, The ASCAP Foundation, and BMI Foundation. The work is also made possible through donations to the New Music USA Endowment.

Time: March 28, 2021 (Pacific Daylight Time)

Location: CCRMA Live, Stanford University, U.S. (Virtual streaming)

Role: Performer

The Coronavirus Crisis has changed our lives and we are in the midst of a long period without concerts as we knew them. In addition to the problem of large audiences, the regulations also make it 'virtually' impossible for musicians to get together, to rehearse, or perform. However, many technologies and solutions are already available, helping us to find new ways of collaborating and transporting our work to audiences. We have been programming, testing, and rehearsing in an online environment between California (US), Berlin (DE) and Ghent (BE). We present concerts that connect musicians from these locations and guests from other places to each other. The sessions are broadcast live with audio and video feeds from each site.
