Boundless Groove: A Sonic Journey in Nature
16 October - 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
One event on 16 October 2021 at 8:00 pm
The acclaimed Wuji Ensemble is once again inviting audiences to an innovative sonic odyssey, complete with set, lighting and video projection design. Combining Chinese and western instruments, the concert takes its inspiration from nature, creating an undulating soundscape that unscrolls like a Chinese landscape painting before one’s eyes. Just as steep mountains and rocky peaks are formidable in their own right and yet connected at their base, so too are the two genres of music as they contrast and complement each other throughout the performance.
