Very happy to be spending some time in Taipei. This is my first time in the city and first time in Taiwan as well. It is a place that has been calling me for many years by way of friends and stories of bubble tea and night markets.
But, alas, I am here to work! Tomorrow I will be presenting my music to students at Taipei National University of the Arts. I’m grateful for this opportunity and look forward to introducing some of my recent (and not-so-recent) work. As I have done on a few other occasions, part of my talk will be devoted to a discussion of the influence of Korean traditional music on my compositions.
(Still the night market beckons….)
