I went to Paris in 2015….. few weeks before the attacks. It’s probably the most poetic city in the world. The city is well-known for its beautiful architecture, fine art, sidewalk cafe, and of course the famous Eiffel Tower. I explored many areas to discover new things and also shot few images. Unfortunately my camera was broken and I had to use the backup camera and an old iPhone, though the videos turned out to be ok. Anyway I hope you will enjoy the following two videos.

The Boston Globe‘s preview of this Sunday evening’s concert by Czech-based ensemble Konvergence at lilypad in Cambridge is below. Super excited about this weekend. Come hear music of Chao-Jan Chang, friends from CZ Tomas, Misha, Ondřej, classics of Lachenmann and Feldman, and of course yours truly!

Illusions is a video project based on the 4th movement of the music, four moods for solo cello, that Chang composed in 2009. The music contains many uncommon cello techniques Chang discovered. The sound modulation idea is more or less derived from synthesizer techniques. It mainly focuses on the most basic music element, “sounds” and many ideas are also influenced by nature and Chinese art, such as Chinese calligraphy and painting.
The video was shot over a period of 3 months. It also contains many abstract and concrete photos that Chang took years ago. The images reveal a distortion of senses, an illness of disorder, allusions of desires, fears and deepest dreams.
