BreathPlay | Byron Au Yong & Christopher Yohmei Blasdel
Direct from his Tokyo recital Shakuhachi exTemporal, which celebrated 35 years of studying shakuhachi in Japan, Christopher Yohmei Blasdel performs with Seattle composer/musician Byron Au Yong.
Together they explore sounds from around the Pacific Rim using shakuhachi (Japanese end-blown bamboo flute), Asian percussion including paper and water, piano and voice in the historic Good Shepherd Center Chapel built in 1906.
Au Yong and Blasdel met at the International House of Japan where Blasdel is the Arts Program Advisor. They have worked on a number of projects since 1996. Their site-responsive performance at the Tokyo Art Museum designed by Tadao Ando was praised by audience members as "inventive and stimulating."
BreathPlay marks the first time they have performed together in Seattle.
