Every day, sea coasts around the world go through the cycle of high and low tides. From high to low and from low to high, every 12 hours and 25 minutes. Again and again. The forces of the moon have been doing their thing for centuries.
Chinese Guzheng player Wu Fei is inspired by them. During the Made in China Festival, she will travel to Ghent for a week of creating with an impressive bunch of musicians. Using ancient Chinese poetry and the waves as their guide, they will create their own sonic poem to experience together with the audience. A very personal tour de force in perpetual propulsive motion.
House of Wu Fei
Wu Fei (guzheng, vocals), Dijf Sanders (electronics), Simon Segers (drums), Louise van den Heuvel (bass)
* Simon Segers replaces Mattias De Craene due to circumstances.
Virtuoso Chinese guzheng player Wu Fei enjoyed a classical education, but chose a jagged path that includes improvisation and folk in addition to classical Chinese music. She released her solo album Yuan on Zorn's Tzadik label and collaborated with Fred Frith for Distant Youth. With American banjo player Abigail Washburn, she plays Kung Fu Appalachian folk.
That adventurous path aligns perfectly with that of her fellow players.
This wonderful amalgam of influences and musically extraordinary personalities cannot but result in a wondrous concert.
