The Asian Music Festival 2011 has invited me to conduct the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra in a performance of my own composition Etude for Orchestra in July. This engagement will add another destination before I arrive in Taiwan for the Taiwan Symphony Orchestra’s performance in August. Great timing! I am grateful for the recognition they have given me, and look forward to meeting composers from The Japan Federation of Composers and beyond.

The concert “Fun Is Not Allowed” features a program of musical works played on laptop computers plus percussion instruments. The music/sounds made by the computer can range from imitation of traditional instrumental sounds to completely synthetic and abstract sounds. Coordination of the ensemble performance sometimes relies on a conductor, wireless network data control, on-screen chat window communications, eye contact, and pre-defined structures practiced through rehearsals.
Last year, we commissioned many composers to create new works for us to play, and that was a very rewarding process. We were able to sample many different strategies for dealing with the technology and aesthetics. This semester, we decided to focus on creating works ourselves. There are four brand new pieces that were developed by our members, while two pieces are from invited composers. The prospect of writing music and trying out different ideas together is sometimes overwhelming, but always very interesting.
