Melody of China and Gene Coleman
Join Melody of China and guest artists on Sunday, June 5th, at the Center for New Music in San Francisco.  This program features the WORLD PREMIERE of an exciting work by Gene Coleman, featuring performances by Melody of China with guest artists.  The afternoon will also include selections from the traditional repertoire as well as several Chinese jazz fusion highlights.  

Horizon is scored for Chinese instruments (Yangqin, Sheng, Pipa and Guzheng), pre-recorded voice, and a chamber trio comprised of bass clarinet, violin and cello. Using a text in Chinese and English created by the composer, the work explores the concept of the philosopher's walk -a moving meditation through the mountain-like canyons of present day Hong Kong. The architectural forms of the city are compared to images of words and Chinese ink painting, thus creating a parallel universe to the music's fusion of Chinese and Western instruments. Shot on location in Hong Kong, the video is directed by Gene Coleman with cinematography by Nicholas Lerman.
