Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

// BLURB //
What do you taste when you hear Igor Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring? What colors do you see wisping and waving through the air when Richard Wagner’s Ride of the Valkyries presents itself to your ears? And where do you go when you hear Yu Boya and Zhong Ziqi’s High Mountain and Flowing Water? Stravinsky questioned how we separate civilization from barbarism, and how we might tell the difference between them. His return to Russian folk traditions caused mixed reactions from patrons and critics alike, with the opening night of Rites described later as a “riot” of booms, crashes, and hisses. Wagner demanded domination with the gentle hum that grows into thunderous roars separated by metallic clanks. He demanded synthesis. Valkyries was a song of war, an auditory claim for praxis which has been motivated time and time again. Similarly Yu and Zhong plucked their guzheng strings to the plunk-plunk-plunk of water flowing down a mountain which reflected the harmony of their own friendship. So what shall our other senses make of noise if music represents mirrored synthesis, domination, and perfect harmony?
