Furthermore, to commemorate the Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month in May, the concert will feature works by Emily Koh and Juhi Bansal as well as an improvisational piano piece with sounds programmed in Supercollider by Joo Woo Park! The concert also features the world premiere of Sustain for piano and electronics by French artist Aries Mond.

“Cosmic Cliffs finds inspiration in and uses imagery from NASA’s James Webb Telescope … both the audio and video interact with the performer during the performance.” – from the program note of Cosmic Cliffs by Dylan Findley.

Ting Luo, pianist and director of New Arts Collaboration, based in Bay Area. She has performed and lectured in prestigious venues in China and US, advocating contemporary music. Ting Luo has curated a multimedia music and art project NAC since 2020. She actively collaborates with artists from multiple disciplines including visual artists, composers, and sound artists. Works by NAC have been featured in The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art’s Digital Shorts Film Festival, Fresh Inc Festival and New Music Gathering Conference/Festival.

New Arts Collaboration is an interdisciplinary art project for sound and multimedia. NAC was curated by pianist Ting Luo in 2020. NAC connects with artists from multi-disciplined fields, forming a strong bond for artists to collaborate with each other, including living composers, sound artists, visual artists and so on. In our vision, sound as a human expression could be formed and interacted freely and experimentally with other mediums including electronics, tape, visuals, music, etc. *New Arts Collaboration is a fiscally-sponsored affiliate of InterMusic SF, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to small ensemble music in the San Francisco Bay Area.
