Name­less but Won­der­ful: The Chang­ing Fo­cus of Sola’s Mu­sic

China Pictorial (English) - - Culture On Display -

In the 1990s, Chi­nese mu­si­cian Liu Sola be­gan to take in­spi­ra­tion from paint­ings. She tried to ma­te­ri­al­ize ab­stract ideas and trans­late her mu­sic into spe­cific graph­ics to form her unique mu­sic scores. This ex­hi­bi­tion dis­plays Liu’s mu­si­cal manuscripts and orig­i­nal mu­si­cal copies, which have never been shown to the pub­lic be­fore. Videos of her cre­ative process are another part of the ex­hi­bi­tion, pro­vid­ing au­di­ence a sin­gu­lar vis­ual ex­pe­ri­ence to help un­der­stand Liu’s cre­ative process and meth­ods.

Liu Sola is a renowned con­tem­po­rary Chi­nese mu­si­cian and writer. Her fic­tions are deemed rep­re­sen­ta­tive of China’s avant-garde nov­els in the new era. Septem­ber 9 – Oc­to­ber 14, 2017 Tokyo Gallery+bei­jing Tokyo Art Projects, Bei­jing
