Performance practice as compositional process : the case of HK Cantonese narrative singing Naamyam
Centre for Cultural Research and Development, Lingnan University
Voice, Instrument and Cultural Difference : Musical Practice as Research
3:00 p.m. -- 5:00 p.m.
Online Session via Zoom
CCRD invites four distinguished Hong Kong-based speakers to share their personal journeys of experimentation with different kinds of musical practice, and to offer insights into ‘practice as research’ in music-making and performance. These diverse forms of practice as research involve voice talking to instrument, instrument reaching out to voice, and musicians being challenged by cultural difference viscerally experienced through language and melody.
In this session, Yu Siu Wah (CCRD Research Fellow) speaks from an instrumentalist’s perspective about his encounter with Cantonese narrative music.
