UCCA National Holiday Series Transboundary Concert: Into Space


Location:  Nave
Language:  Chinese

On 1 October, UCCA invites the renowned violinist Sibo Xu and his friends to present a transboundary concert — “Into Space.” This experimental and largely improvised concert combines looped violin music, guzheng, percussion, music videos, and singing. The music grows from the performers’ imagination, an unconstrained flow of visionary notes and noises that seem to originate from the vast universe.

A loop is a repeating section of sound material that can be created using a wide range of music technologies, including turntables, digital samplers, and synthesizers, among others. While it may be ubiquitous in electronic music, the combination of the violin with looping is an entirely new performance form in China. Looping can create infinite possibilities. By fusing classical and modern music and overturning our conventional understanding of the violin, Xu and his friends will bring you a profoundly experimental electroacoustic experience.
