About

Shaped equally by her roots in China as well as European influences, Ying Wang, with her struggle for an individual musical language, embodies in an exemplary way the challenges of finding a point of balance between two cultures. Wang mediates between the two cultures. She has achieved quite personal solutions in her works, integrating dramatic impulses and meditative sensual sonorities. She regards as especially fruitful the transferring of techniques for the creation of electronic sounds to acoustic instruments.

Restriction and freedom are important criteria in Wave in D, where Wang, out of extremely limited tonal material, draws a rich assemblage of differentiated sound colours from the possibilities of the traditional instrument and the electronics.

In Tun-Tu, baritone saxophone and electronic sounds interact and come together in an imaginary sound landscape. The distorted sounds of the instrument, embedded in a cosmos of mysterious electronic colourations, seem at first almost improvisatory, but Tun-Tu is rigorously organized.

In Coffee and Tea, Ying Wang reflects on contrasts between the cultures of Asia and Europe and uses coffee and tea as metaphors.
