Not all the bags in the picture (Sacramento Airport arrivals) are mine!:-) I am happy to announce that I will be visiting UC Davis and Berkeley to give lectures and concerts in November 2012. My lecture will be on, "Pawn or Queen: The Role of the 'Performer' in 21st-Century Music," (scheduled from 3 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 14, in 115 Music Building). The theme of this lecture appeared during my work as not only as a pianist but also as a curator of coherent programs. "What is the role of the Performer today? Are we supposed to follow the needs of the composer, the audience or just music? How can we help audiences find more access to newer art music?" These are just some of the questions we will try to answer during the discussion. My first performance “A Sonic Journey of European Piano Music,” will take place on Thursday, Nov. 15, as part of the free Shinkoskey Noon Concert series. On the same day I will travel to Berkeley, also talk to the composition students at UC Berkeley (5pm). The next night, Nov. 16, will be the night to tell some “Tales from the Silent Lands,” featuring works by John Cage, Morton Feldman, by myself, Lei Liang and Ken Ueno, each of them influenced and inspired by minimalistic approaches works. Here is the program to my noon concert: Shinkoskey Noon Concert: A Sonic Journey of European Piano Music — 12:05-1 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 15, Yocha Dehe Grand Lobby, Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts.
