Innovation and Collaboration

Traditional arts in Asia are steeped and intertwined with history and culture. Fast forward to the present and works of art are often shaped with the surge of multiculturalism and globalization. Musicians could not help but wonder, “How do we produce a contemporary interpretation out of tradition while preserving it simultaneously? How do we prolong the life of traditional art?”

In this episode of ACC x HKAC Creative Mind Series, we are pleased to invite three visiting ACC alumni in collaboration with Asian Young Musicians' Connection (Hong Kong). Traditional flute musician gamin was awarded an ACC fellowship in 2013 to explore contemporary music in the U.S. Flute player Kohei Nishikawa received an ACC fellowship in 2015 to study the nose flute in Taiwan. Composer Koji Nakano received an ACC fellowship in 2008 as an artist-in-residence at the Royal University of Fine Arts in Cambodia.

Having exposed to different cultures, our alumni have realized the impact and interaction between tradition and contemporary art. Hong Kong is steeped in history and culture, and in recent years there has been an increasing interaction between tradition and contemporary art. This talk is a valuable opportunity for our artists to share their experiences and insights with the audience.
