INK AND SOUND: a Conference on Chinese Music and Visual Arts
After four successful virtual lectures last year, the ‘Ink Art and New Music’ Creative Exchange Project is entering its second phase at the Bard Conservatory in the U.S.!
Exploring the interrelationship between Chinese visual arts and musical composition, this two-day conference titled ‘Ink and Sound: a Conference on Chinese Music and Visual Arts’ will include an online webinar, scholarly presentations, concerts, and instrument demonstrations. New, ink-art-inspired music works by composition students selected from Bard and HKU, as well as their mentors, will be premiered by musicians of the Bard Conservatory.
Details of the Hong Kong premiere of the new compositions in Phase III will be announced later – stay tuned!
繼四場網上講座後，去年啟動的《水墨藝術與新音樂》創作交流項目即將進入第二階段！為期兩天的研討會《Ink and Sound: a Conference on Chinese Music and Visual Arts》將在美國巴德音樂學院舉行，當中包括網上講座、專題學術討論、音樂會和即場樂器示範等，探討水墨藝術和現代音樂的美學異同。
屆時，此項目的重頭節目之一 —— 巴德音樂學院和港大音樂系四位作曲學生及其導師創作的新音樂將隆重登場，並由巴德音樂學院中西混合室內樂團進行世界首演。
The following events in the conference are available virtually. HKU’s very own composers, Prof. Chan Hing-yan, Austin Leung, and Jing Wang, will be featured.
