Re-Visioning Guqin Performance
The art of guqin music is multi-dimensional, with its distinct fluid modulation of pitch, dynamics, and timbre in the tones created by the combination of the left and right hand finger techniques. These techniques are choreographic, kinaesthetic, and synesthetic. Dr Jon He has developed g.qin, a customised gestural musical interface, to investigate these elements of guqin performance and explore their performative potential with new mechatronic musical instruments, evoking new amalgams of electro-instrumental music.
