Hear from three extraordinary artists each weaving their identities and imaginations into the new music space.
Chinese Arts Now are delighted to present Alex Ho, Sun Keting, and Raymond Yiu in conversation. Discussing their own practices and exploring their points of intersection and departure, discover the vibrant ideas, sounds, collaborations, and networks that these artists draw upon to inspire their compositions and communities.
Hosted by yangqin-extraordinaire Reylon Yount, each artist presents a recent work ranging from Raymond Yiu’s tender elegy to the Chinese Labour Corps of WWI shortlisted for the RPS Chamber-Scale Composition Award, Sun Keting’s evocative meditation on silence for solo guitar, and the world premiere of Alex Ho’s explosive new work for solo piano, Knuckleduster.
