"Chai Found Music" At The ISGC 2008 Banquet, Taipei, Taiwan

"In 1991 a group of musicians got together with the aim of reviving Chinese musical tradition and finding new creative possibilities building upon that tradition, while still protecting the essence of the sizhu music (Chinese chamber music). The Chai Found Music Workshop was formed.
The instruments of Chai Found are the six most representative instruments of Chinese musical tradition: the erhu, the di, the pipa, the guzheng, the yangqin, and the ruanxian. With these six instruments it is possible to put on a truly traditional sizhu music performance, but they also give the artist room to develop modern, creative pieces."
We had a taste of the Chai Found Music during the banquet of the International Symposium on Grid Computing (ISGC 2008) at The Sherwood Hotel - Taipei on April 11, 2008.
I wanted to take video clips and more photos of their performance but I ran out of charged batteries.
Listening to the Chai Found musical performance is a unique and wonderful experience: it is like modernizing classical music.
