Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Tai-chi 42 Postures as Interactive Performance
    contains Tai-chi-quan, Overtone singing
    (Hoomei, kind of Chi-kung) and technology
    (sensors detecting, data transmission…). It is an
    integration of my life experience, technology
    learning, and composition concept existing in
    the most recent 15 years. As a Taiwanese,
    Tai-chi is quite well-known; as a traditional
    composer using high technology, Max/MSP is
    always an obstacle should be conquered by
    attending seminars, workshops, etc. “Tai-chi
    generates two complementary forces. Two
    complementary forces generate four aggregates.
    Four aggregates generate eight trigrams. Eight
    trigrams determine myriads of phenomena.”
    Tai-chi is a chaos full of the Space. Tai-chi
    Interactive Performance combines with
    Overtone singing, new technology which can
    reach the Sky and be unlimited by Sky.
