Chai Found Music Workshop (Taiwan) with Ensemble Noamnesia (Philadelphia)
This program features the great traditional Chinese instrument group Chai Found Music Workshop, in a program that will include a new music and video composition by Philadelphia composer Gene Coleman. Chai Found Music Workshop is joined by Ensemble Noamnesia, an internationally recognized new music group with members in Philadelphia, Chicago and New York. Together they will perform Coleman’s “Future City 未來城市 (Dream Walking).” This work presents a portrait of a virtual city in sound and image, combining western and Chinese instruments to create a “Blade Runner”-like landscape of architectural forms and Chinese calligraphy. To provide context for the new work, the program will also include selections of traditional Chinese music.
Admission is $10; free to Dance Card holders, students with ID, and seniors.
