The Blue and White Concert
I’m excited to be taking part this coming Saturday, September 25, in the premiere of The Blue and White Concert: The Book of Changes, the latest creation of my friend and frequent collaborator, traditional Korean Drummer Vongku Pak.
The Blue and White Concert: The Book of Changes is an experimental world music performance, which fuses traditional Korean rhythms with contemporary Western music. The concept of this concert derived from the ancient Chinese book, the I Ching, which teaches that all aspects of life on earth change through the balance of dynamic opposite, known as the yin and yang.
The show features Vong on a battery of traditional Korean percussion instruments (and wii remotes), Eddy Martinez on electric guitar, Jorge Mesa on bass, Robert Aaron on saxophone, and myself on laptop.
