Following their workshop in February, I’m pleased to share news of an upcoming performance of my violin and viola duo, Incantation, by Euna Kim and William Lane of Hong Kong New Music Ensemble at Tai Kwun in Hong Kong on September 12.
Incantation was premiered in 2013 at the Aspen Music Festival. The performance at Tai Kwun will be the premiere of its revised version following the HKNME workshop and subsequent edits and conversation.
My work’s title evokes those repeated phrases, spells, and rituals, which have the power to stir emotions and also spirts—for good or for evil. I’m looking forward to stirring these spirits with fresh ears in an amplified performance at this unique outdoor space in Central next month.
