Work Overview

Something mesmerizing takes place when sound is produced by a performer on his/her chosen instrument. The aural sensation, as it is filtered through our ears, evokes certain reminiscence of the past, or future; while the eyes follows closely to the performer's bodily movements as an additional layer of innately human and social interaction being expressed beyond the audible.

My aim in TEE/Tee/T is to create a scenario where the musicians are communicating beyond the reliance on sonic materials. In creating a counterpoint between actions and sounds, individuals and collective, each physical movement is derived from some of the idiomatic ways of playing the instruments. In deconstructing each step of the actions into many micro steps towards one final trajectory, the familiar sounds are also dissected into many nuances before it is arriving at its complete expression.
