Brian Chu Yin-woo 朱彥龢
supported artist of year 2018-19
Brian Chu (wo4) is continually attracted by the coincidental rhythms that are produced in the course of daily life. It is this curiosity that animates his desire to sounding objects out, testing them for their resonant possibilities.
Through his improv, he explores the properties of sound in a percussive way. Through this process, he hopes to elaborate a unique language that corresponds to each passing immediacy.
龢 (“Wo” pronounced with the fourth accent in the Cantonese language) is a word that originally signifies the euphony that results from the sound of several bamboo reed flutes playing at once, and connotes harmony. Having assumed this name, Brian hopes that a resonance and a rapport can be established lying between contemplation, emotion, and the many-layered frequencies of reverberant sound, all of these entering into an interplay with one another and negotiating ephemeral forms of balance.
Brian Chu (wo4) is supported by soundpocket’s Artist Support Programme 2018–19.
