I WOULD LIKE TO FOCUS THIS CONCERT ON THE INFLUENCE OF TECHNOLOGY AND CYCLES OF CULTURAL SHIFTS IN THE PRESENT AND THE PAST OF THE CLASSICAL MUSIC SCHOOL.

THE MUSIC IN THIS PERFORMANCE IS AN INDULGENT EXPANSION OF THE CONTEMPORARY CLASSICAL VIOLA WRITING VIA A HEAVY DOSE OF AUDIO PATCHES, THAT HAS BEEN CREATED BY THE COMPOSERS AND THEIR TEACH OF SONIC ART SPECIALIST. AS SUCH, I AM NEVER ALONE IN THIS PERFORMANCE. IN PRISM SPECTRA, AN ORCHESTRA WILL EMERGE TO SHAPE THE SPATIAL AWARENESS. SAARIAHO’S HAUNTING BREATHE WILL SAUNTER IN THE ATMOSTPHERE. I INCLUDED AN ELEMENT OF ‘WET-INK- VIRTOUSITY’ ,SIMPLY BECAUSE NOTHING IS TRULY THE FUTURE , UNLESS WE’VE BEEN RIPPED AND THROWN INTO NEWNESS. LETS WELCOME A NEW CREATION BY CHONG KEE YONG.

I HOPE YOU ENJOY NOWNESS.
