TOUCHING SOUNDS: INSTRUMENT AS MUSIC
by Dr Hoh Chung Shih
Dr Hoh Chung Shih studied at King’s College London, and completed a Ph.D in Composition at the University at Buffalo, where he also studied computer music at the Lejaren Hiller Computer Music Studios. Since 1996, he studied the guqin (Chinese 7-string zither) with Master Ji Zhiqun. His international presence as composer, through works by commissions and requests from Asia, Europe and America have led him to collaborate with some of world’s premier musicians. Chung Shih is also a sound artist, who works in interdisciplinary collaborations with MLuM, an international artist collective. His interest can be described as an exploration of a double intersection: one between the avant-garde and the experimental, and the other between the international contemporary and traditional Chinese literati cultures. Dr Hoh is also the current president of the Composers Society of Singapore (CSS).
The Q&A session will be moderated by Hector Lee, a graduating postgraduate student from MA Arts Pedagogy and Practice at LASALLE.
