Du Yun Curates: The New Java and Shanghai

Part of SoundState

Du Yun curates contemporary work from two of the ancient capitals of music as a look into a future tradition.

Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Du Yun consistently pushes past boundaries and blurs artificial distinctions of style within her singular musical vision.

Expect a radical upgrade of ancient Indonesian and Chinese sound-worlds as she curates – and creates – a one-hour performance for these ancient instruments.
