HuaHui, Ustad H. Sayeeduddin DAGAR Râg Bhopali, The Experiment, role play, performance

4 cubes today.

Listened to a concert on Youtube Indian chants - Ustad H. Sayeeduddin DAGAR Râg Bhopali - it takes 20mn of slow soft chanting and gradually it builds up to a "pea bursting" speed. Registered in France at a chateaux. Whole performance was approx 36mn.

Watched a talk by the Prof who did the Stanford Prison Experiment. He had a "fu man chu type of mustache". ( Who prefer moustache of this style? ) I saw the movie based on the real life experiment. How can you account for such an experiment? Even the conception of the "realistic" details, like the phony arrests... all this is so cruel. How can you not think that this is not "just an experiment" right from the start? Would it have been possible to test what he wanted without going through all this?

Another talk was rather humourous by somebody who did "pain" investigation, but he did it starting from his own skin burnt experience. This seem to be more responsible and more admirable as a research - because he used himself first and not take risks at other peoples expenses.

I think its not right to experiment using others when it involves unknown scales of sufferings - even if they give consent as in the case of the Stanford students - but the second guy gave electro shock to his samples... hmmm. Anyway the conclusion is, if anonymity prevails people can and do become a lot more cruel without any moral consideration. They had thought maybe only 1% of the people would be cruel - behave like Hitler - but it turns out to be 90%, if the action has no consequences to themselves when their name is undisclosed.

I was looking at "role play" - would people perform to a role specification? How much would they do to build up to the role playing?

The film I saw was a BBC documentary collaboration between Exeter University and BBC, "The Experiment" docu is not the Stanford experiment. This time, the prison and guards were also recrutied and tested psychologically, while the film was going on, (film=experiment) there was a team of doctors and professors making sure that no psychological harm comes to the participants. The experiment also ended earlier than planned.

I checked, the film I saw was not the BBC docu, it was Das Experiment a 2001 German film directed by Oliver Hirschbiegel. Also terrible to watch.

Surprise! Not only the Americans made the original experiment, the Germans made a movie, and the BBC did a documentary-reality tv with University research backing; another remake is starting in July 09, tomorrow!! remake of the Das Experiment! Why is this subject so good to re-do over and over again?

HuaHui coming up, underlying structure.

more air when the cubes are intercut w a void

BD Haiku said, this is a forteress, here the captain and the horsewoman, they do what they like here. I said, which of the two is a man and which is a woman. He said both are women, but women can do whatever they like.

I said, these cubes look so hard, and rough and like mediaeval armours... but I think it could look soft later, depends on how the whole is attached together. Which is the binding system that I will use?

I want to make a tensegrity structure, like soft without any hard structures inside. I think there is a way. Its the underlying puzzle, the mainframe that I want to solve now.

I often want to get the little pieces together first and then decide what is the best unifying element? What are these little pieces all about?

We say once the big structure is determined, you really cant change much. But on the other hand what about little pieces, if you have all these little pieces, can you make of them anyway you want? I just want to be surprised by myself.

Often, when you finally got it all together, you are so happy, you are so surprised that it all fit together... that is the difference between architecture and sculpture for me. I keep on wanting to change things all the time. In architecture you cant afford to do that. Your boss will kill you.

The boss = the guy who controls the purse string.

Qin land

Ideally, in Qin land, people should be elegant - does not mean pretty clothes; all flashy - but free and open minded and spontaneous. Like Li Pos poems.

I looked at the Shosoin qin again, why not make an ornate Qin ? Nobody makes ornate Qins these day due to the drift of "QingWeiDanYuan" school of thought.

I think in Tang Dynasty, the music is unlikely to be "QingWeiDanYuan". :)

Girls plump and walk around on the streets in low cut dresses, horses with powerful behinds and legs like that, Qins with power and full fleshed forms. And that Li Po and all those poets, what could the Qin music be like at those times?

Jim Binkley - Little Old Qin maker, 王悠荻 Guqin Compeititon first prize May09, On the road, Nice day

Little Old Qin maker, Jim Binkley - I am very impressed with his set up! Wow must go visit him on occasion.

I designed and made two original style of qin.
The Half Hundun and the Big Handscroll, both embryos were made at a Beijing Qin masters atelier, his name is TIAN Shuang Kun 田双昆 , one of the four student of Guan PingHu. I designed the qins using foam core, a scale 1:10 (if I remember correctly)The model was about 10inches long.

The lacquer + deerhorn powder coating was put on under the instruction of ZHENG MingZhong, the palace museum specialist.

While I was visiting him at his home, I saw he had lots of rescued qins on the wall. And I liked one of them very much, which was unpolished, the lacquer was in rough cheese clot state (but black color). The sound was really gd, makes no difference polished or not, he said.

So I asked if he could teach me how to make a qin, he said yes. So I designed 5 models, out of the 5, we picked out two. (Since you have to wait around for each coating to dry, making one or two needs the same block of time; so i decided to make two qins)

He gave some comments to which one is better sounding, there was one more round belly version I thought it would sound really good - acoustically speaking it would ressemble african tree drums - but in miniature - i thought. He said, it would take too much material, would be expensive, cost twice as much, so better use the more standard bodies. The wood is from 100 year old "shan" wood.

So I picked out my two favorite models and had them made to full size and put on the lacquer myself, but it took 2 years before I finish because I didnt have time to polish etc. Finally its finished. Am so happy. It remains to be one of my happiest "oeuvre" in the ensemble of Digital Guqin + Qin culture research. I adapted my tuning pegs from some very sturdy plexiglass tubes. Even though I have purchased two full sets of wood and tassels. I decided I like them transparent with tiny handmade short silky tassels and not the big candle like typical long strands.

Getting ready

琴缘 琴音 琴德——记故宫博物院文物鉴定专家郑珉中先生

琴缘 琴音 琴德——记故宫博物院文物鉴定专家郑珉中先生


20世纪50年代中期,他曾到中央美术学院美术史系旁听王逊先生 “中国美术史”课程,此时在唐兰先生领导下完成了“历代艺术综合陈列”,建成了“历代艺术馆”,并每年改陈一次。为了改陈工作的顺利开展,郑先生又到中央美术学院旁听金维诺先生讲的“中国美术史”、阎文儒先生的“中国雕塑史”,学习后,他马上将所学知识运用到改陈工作中来,在布展中,注意展示不同历史时代的风格特点,促进了工作创新。这时故宫博物院收购的文物较多,他与其他专家一起鉴定这些东西,辨真伪,定去留,成为他此时日常工作的内容之一。
另一件私人藏宋代 “尧夫”琴,也是经他之手鉴定出来的。“尧夫”即邵雍,北宋哲学家,字尧夫。因隐居苏门山,后人称其为百源先生,卒谥康节。其才学为后世学者所崇仰。此琴虽不能肯定是邵康节先生所制,但琴上款字由他亲笔所书,可知是其监制无疑。如此名贤法物,在传世古琴中极为罕见。此琴仲尼式,通体髹黑漆,光洁如新,琴身发蛇腹断纹,微起剑峰,通长122.5厘米,肩宽19.2厘米,尾宽13.7厘米,琴额饰椭圆形白玉一块,小头、直顶、垂肩,造型优美。琴面圆厚,颇有形如筒瓦之势。琴背开长方形龙池凤沼,龙池略微偏上,俱为枣木原装,周边棱色一致,腹内纳音殊不明显。钢弦,音雄浑,响钟磬之声。 腹款为“庆历元年尧夫制”。琴棋书画,琴为第一,可见古人对琴的钟爱程度,古琴不易保存,留存至今明以上的古琴十分少见。特别是品相完好,又有名士款的古琴,更是凤毛麟角。郑珉中先生以八字描述此琴:旷世名琴,弥足珍贵。


A report of a recent guqin concert in Xiamen - as a sample of a common "yaji" concerts by blogger 黄绍坚.
The writer is very critical of what he saw, almost zero good things in the guqin event - from clothing to performance to musicality to almost everything including the dark black shades one of the player wore. If what he reported is true - and I could imagine it could be say 85% true (because most people see 80% of a general aspect of things, and it takes a huge amount of effort to see the rest of the 20% if the event is not all bad - the difference between reporting what you see, and finding something worthy to report about is in the detail 20%. 黄绍坚has a photo of the concert hall - looks nice, wood paneling, container-hardware is good! - what he described is the content-people-software not up to expectation worthy of the name of yaji.

His blog is interesting because its the 80% "public" report of a yaji. Was there any left over 20% creme de la creme in it? This will need work on the reporter side.
But the blogger quoted a poem, it is written in a simple language, but is a very good contemporary Chinese poem. It truly expresses the ambiance of contemporary China, the common dream of youths. His comments about the poetic improvisation of LXT is apt. We might be able to improvise a poem on the fly, but is it a great poem that is another question. :)

Here is the quoted original poem that I like to share with readers : (for LXT's on the fly verse, please read the original blog for that.)

那首表面温暖、内心绝望的原诗:by : 海子


How many times you go shopping - I mean truly shopping - looking for something new, that is viewing without a target in mind and not the picking-up-items off a specific list shopping - and come back with one or more finds? Sometimes none. Thats because you did not find that unexpected dream target, the 20% beyond worthy of purchase.

This is the same with events when a large hugely populated country is in great change and movement. You will see lots of milk and little cream.
We must not be so harsh as we dont know the detail constraints of each event, you need everybody doing a lot first, then you sort afterwards. We will not get the 5%cream without the rest of the 95% of milk.

Same with finding Guqin schools, teachers, lessons, so much available, which one is the right one, suitable and worthy of your time?

Qin music, culture for all; titles

On the one hand we have Qin music and culture available for all, on the other hand, a lot of musicians I met seem to be quite aware of a "self imposed noblesse".
I found a Qin group on Facebook, the people are really open. Am happy to see them, and just hang around to see what are they up to?

All books of QinPu's downloadable here.

I downloaded the books - just looking at the repertoire, this is enough for anyone to do in many life times!

Please look at the following as a picture, a graphic picture and imagine, each piece say lasts 5mn. How many 5 mns do you have if you string them together, end to end?
And if each 5 mn piece, say takes one day to memorise, (for a very quick, genius grade learner) How much time would it take to learn all of them?

The story goes, some people only need to play one tune in their life time, they play one tune and play it very well. :)

Some people also plays a stringless Qin; no need for strings! Music is in the heart.

I like the list of names of pieces, so here they are:

Think of this as a long cloth of ... graphics, and each graphics sings a 5mn piece.

Jumping links, 6 degrees of separation, HomeShop, bought a Stone Tree Castle

Bought a Stone Tree Castle, for playing the guqin in sl, I had made an atelier, a transformation of an existing freebie house. Took a lot of time.
Now I found this Stone Tree Castle, its also based on a freebie Lighthouse - but I have no time to do major renovation. So for now, I just bought one ready made to do some interior work for now. Until further notice. I would like to have scripts to make the vine curtains grow though, maybe change colors too. :)

How do we go from one point to another, what are the links, like jumping-Chinese checkers game? How many steps do you need to get from point A to point B? And if you didnt decide ahead of time where point B is? There is a theory that nobody is separated from anybody else by 6 steps: 6 degrees of separation.

How did I find an interesting person? Starting from an interesting picture.
1/ I saw this profile pic, cute old person => click, here it is He YingYa - HomeShop
This picture is so cute, old people in Beijing. A lot of old Chinese people are so adorable.
2/ He YingYa wrote to me => because of Secondlife, Digital Guqin
3/ Found => Elaine Ho linked to HomeShop - Artist Elaine Ho, HomeShop work in Beijing.
What next?
4/ Mr.Tong of Tang Fu
5/ Cinema expert from Vienna

Secret Target: Who ends up here?

6/ Russian businessman
7/ XiaoDong exhibition
8/ Eva, former student; now assistant of Jia ZhengKe
Surprise, surprise!!

Qin teaching

Other Qin teaching set ups as follows:

Class room situation,
two rows of seats, 10 per class. Teacher explains, using text book, student plays. Each student performs the exercise as per teacher instruction. Some details about the phrasing, musicality of why this must be played like this or that.

One on one situation.
Teacher demonstrates phrase by phrase, note by note, student repeats. Memory work.
Student seats opposite teacher. 45mn

One on one situation
Teacher shows notes and exercise sheet, techniques are used. Plucking, thumb, middle finger etc. wrist position versus the surface of the qin - to not strain the wrist over a long period of time. Listening - how each sound is projected from the instrument if flesh on thumb or finger drag too much on string or not...

Stephen C. Walker guqin player, learning Guqin

Stephen C.Walker has several sites on the guqin, very eloquent. I learnt that 3 of his sites are blocked in China. Curious. One of them is so attractive, expressive on Liu ShaoChun - Master Player from Nanjing, grandfather of a friend. These are very bright writings crossing Chinese, Non-Chinese boundaries with Medieval music sources too, and videos of his playing - how convincing is a qin scholar who only talk and not play? (many play but only for themselves, see quote below *) His background is solid with musical training at an early age, and from his texts he probably attacks all his interests fully - he calls "plumbing" - :)

Swann reproduces here, his quote on his welcome page, which expresses the essence of the guqin.

琴之為物, 乃聖人治世之音, 修身養性之器。
"The sage-kings used its tone to order the world. It is the tool for cultivating character and nourishing the fundamental nature. Such is the qin."

余嘗謂彈琴與人聽, 固不足言; 彈琴及同志小集, 僅供研究, 亦不足言; 彈琴至我彈與我聽, 庶乎可言矣。然仍不如我雖彈我並不聽, 手揮目送, 純任自然, 隨氣流轉, 不自知其然而然, 斯臻化境矣, 斯可言琴矣。然此亦僅可與知者道耳。

"I have said before that playing the qin for others to hear is hardly worth speaking about. Playing it at small gatherings of the like-minded only provides for discussion and conferral, and is likewise not worth speaking about. Playing while I alone listen is almost worth speaking about, but it is not equal to playing without listening. My hands and thoughts move effortlessly together; in purity I rely on the spontaneous, following the circling flows of the cosmic breath; I know not that I am so but am simply so—such is to reach the realm of transformation, and this alone can be called the qin. It can be spoken about only with those who truly understand."

- Zhang Ziqian 張子謙 (1899-1991)

*I totally agree with the essence of the message, however, this is at a very high level of achievement, we are talking about someone doing soliloguy with himself through the qin.

For other players, we need a huge amount of playing in group and outside of group situations to raise the level (of any art). You must have mutual learning opportunities, but not only group situations, but also a lot of time by yourself. You only have to see a general level of any art in any community.

Take a very banal example, cooking is generally good everywhere in Hong Kong - whereas not so sure in a lost town in the middle of a desert somewhere in a vaste country (this includes China). Simply because, you have no competition and no parallel samples.

Coming back to the basic question, is it better to learn guqin in a group - which group? or under a single teacher? As Christopher E says, Swann must first find out why she wants to learn the Guqin in the first place and then decide.

Facebook and sl, Guqin,

Swann has to look hard to find guqin people to come into sl.

So, she went to FaceBook, and surprise! Almost everybody is there! They are in Facebook!

What is facebook? And how is facebook as a people network different from sl?
Taka from sl has defected to facebook a few months ago, he puts up beaufitul flower photos. :)

Interesting discussions, links, rl contacts, Facebook is like a text and image rl telephone, whereas sl is telephone plus 3D visual stimulus minus graphic text and image, plus theatrical play. sl could role playing with much imagination!

Take for example:
A friend from sl asked me to see him in his new nude self. He also wants to test some animation balls to see if they work! Could I please test it with him?

In Facebook, I think this kind of immersive imagination play does not come about so naturally.

But the Facebook network interchanges is not in real time, its message pause, message pause. Unless you are chatting - there is a time delay function. Its not pressing, so you have no urgency to answer immediately, no need to hang around to see whats happening next? In sl, it is as if you are living a parallel real life.

Many people are on both.
Their uses are different.

Money Graveyard, Eifachfilm Vacirca

Odyssey Art and Performance Sim

Here are reproductions of real life art - for example Beuys installations - but what is the meaning of installing someone elses work in sl? It must be interesting for some visitors I guess.

My interest is to see an idea come true - in sl - in rl... On the other hand, regarding Beuys idea, his installation is fine enough to express in sl, if it didnt already exist in rl, I think there is no need to do it in rl, I would say - so much waste of good trees. :)

Here below is a money graveyard. Imaginary Money Graveyard by,
Eifachfilm Vacirca.

Money bills are soft, cant stand upright like this in sl, and if its reproduced in rigid panels in rl, it is not the same. This is an idea perfect for an sl installation. Graphically and conceptually it works.

self learning: Chinese guqin site; Guqin players : Wu ZiYing 吳自英 (1943—) , Luca Bonvini
Apparently, somebody started learning the guqin without a human teacher, but via the above site.

Wu ZiYing
I like the way this gentleman presents the guqin to everybody. 吳自英(1943—) I also like his site, very clean and to the point, no unnecessary frills - especially smart and timeless is the abstract diagram of the qin face w the 13 nodal points.
About Guqin
Since the art of guqin music was recognized in 2003 by UNESCO as one of humanity's cultural treasures warranting protection, it has begun to receive more attention around the world. However, because of the instrument's rarity, it has fallen far short of broad popularity. Although many are quite curious about guqin music, most have little understanding of it. Thus, achieving a wider international audience who are able to appreciate guqin music is a very difficult task indeed. For this reason, it is incumbent upon every scholar and performer of the guqin to strive to meet this challenge and this is a goal to which all of us who are devoted to the guqin should dedicate ourselves.

Guqin music is China's oldest, purest traditional music, having received very little influence from other Chinese or foreign musical traditions. Within the treasury of Chinese music culture, no other musical instrument can match its extraordinary cultural value. For over a millennium, the guqin repertoire has been preserved, a detailed historical record of the guqin's development has been maintained, and a completely unique system of notation of its music established, which makes the tradition an important and integral part of Chinese culture.

As the contemporary qin scholar Cheng Gongliang 成公亮 remarked in the postscript to his work titled Pao xiu luo lan 袍修羅蘭:

In traditional Chinese culture, the guqin occupies a very important and unique status. It is a rarely seen instrument in either the performing or popular arts. It is an instrument used by the Chinese literati to express yearning and to convey emotion and inspiration. Its elegantly antique sound is often the echo and reverberation from a kind of spiritual realm. It is like a guide to the musing mind. The ancients often used the guqin to articulate their thoughts, playing out their innermost feelings while expressing their spiritual and philosophical worlds.

I have never sought fame or fortune by playing the guqin, and have for over forty years simply offered lessons and occasionally played for movie soundtracks and theatrical dramas. Now, at the urging of my many students, I am releasing my first CD, with a second CD in preparation. If the music I perform increases the audience for the guqin and deepens their appreciation and understanding of the guqin, then I will have achieved my fundamental goal for releasing these CDs.

Guqin bloggers in rl, Huang WenYi

Guqin Institutions, Shanghai visits, in Chinese (take a look at pics if you cant read, or get Altavista, BabelFish, free online instant-translations)
by Huang WenYi here


I have used Professor Wu WenGuang's Barbarian's Reed Pipe in 18 sections - for one of the tunes of the Virtual Instrument, Digital Guqin Hundun no1. A beautiful tune.

Professor Wu showed some new orchestral arrangements that he is experimenting at the Taichung conference. He is one of the rare guqin people who is interested in new ideas. Am happy that he is so open about this.

Narratives, people, action

What makes a successful SIM?
When the people in the SIM share a narrative - that they can construct and build together, thats when its exciting - you want to see what happens next? (with you in it; otherwise, it would be more like making of a movie)

And what happens when you get a successful SIM?
Are you going to continue - immersion and more immersion, and what about real life?
(do you ever get out of the movie? or the theatrical workshops?)

Virtual Worlds are like a passage to real life - otherwise, how does that perpetual immobile parking of the self impact on the real life body?
Wont you get sick from sitting all day infront of the computer? :)
Is it possible to do exercise just by thinking of doing exercise?

How do the massage tables work in sl, and how much does it work?


sl rl is there anything you want that you cant get in rl but could test modelling in sl?

A qin playing place

Another quiet place for qin music, the HuaHui Mobile Music house. We are making it right now, want to contribute some aluminum skin ? Details

Anything you really want and cant get in rl and you could talk outloud about?

I presented sl to a friend, a high ranking prof. He said, what is this? What can you do with this? I dont need this.
I asked, is there anything you want that you cant do in rl, maybe you could test it out in sl?
He said, I have everything. I dont need anything.
I said, there are things that you might like, but you cant say it, and there are things that you can say out loud. Are there anything at all that you would like that you could also say outloud that you cant do in rl? Maybe we could try to see if it could be possible in sl?
He thought about this for a while.
He just couldnt get used to these rough little animation figures... what is this all about?

I know what I want.
I want to write stories, draw pictures, create and live a narrative without all the problems of material real life (that is in some way possible if you stayed entirely in sl - but who wants to give up rl to do that? ), build house, create a pleasant environement, and listen to all kinds of music. Good food, good drinks too of course. Then people say, what about the "cookie"? Yes, of course the cookie too. Without the cookie, life becomes slowly meaningless. But if you only had the cookie, you would soon get tired of it.

Chinese and East Asian Music: The Future of the Past

14th International CHIME Conference
Musical Instruments Museum (MIM), Brussels, Belgium
18-22 November, 2009

The CHIME meeting, on 'Chinese and East Asian Music: The Future of the Past', will take place at the Musical Instruments Museum (MIM) in Brussels from 18 to 22 November 2009. We look forward to an impressive programme, with over 60 presentations, supplemented with numerous concert performances and workshops.

We received a formidable number of submissions for the meeting, almost twice the number we thought we might be able to harbour! Not surprisingly, it has taken our Programme Committee great pains and effort to finalize its decisions, and to think of practical solutions. Below, we present the papers and events that have been selected for inclusion in our programme.

The programme will be finalized in October. Keynote speakers will be announced in August.

In early June we will issue on this website a list of possibilities for hotel and youth hostel booking, and a pre-registration form. Given the size and scope of the Europalia Festival and the numbers of visitors expected, we kindly urge you to book accommodation in Brussels as early as possible.

We look forward to welcoming everyone at the MIM in November. Anyone not presenting a paper, but interested in attending the conference programme and the concerts as a listener, is most welcome to register, too. The conference is a scholarly meeting, but open to anyone interested in Chinese and East Asian music.

Conference participants who play traditional musical instruments may want to bring them to our informal musical 'corridor gatherings'.

See you in Brussels in November!

For practical questions concerning the conference, please contact the organizer, Mrs Clarie Chantrenne at:

Or via postal mail:

For questions about the conference programme, the concerts and exhibitions, you can contact Frank Kouwenhoven at CHIME, European Foundation for Chinese Music Research, Postbox 11092, 2301 EB Leiden, The Netherlands, e-mail:, telephone +31-71-5133.974.

Main conference theme
What are the future prospects for numerous musical genres (and instruments and stylistacal traits) from China and East Asia's past? This theme will be explored from a wide range of angles, such as:

- Development, preservation and reconstructions of musical instruments

- Preservation and continuation of traditional and 'folk' music

- Reconstruction or re-emergence of historical genres

- Continuation of elements from the past in reinvented traditions and in new music

- Conservation and use of recordings, fieldwork materials and collected objects

Special guests, fringe programme, and Europalia Festival
Among the special guests in this meeting we welcome the local shadow puppeteers of Huanxian (East Gansu), the Beijing zheng trio San Chuan (who combine age-old Chinese string idioms with a jazzy groove) , well-known senior masters of Chinese string solo instruments such as Li Guangzu (pipa), Chen Qijun (Chaozhou style zheng), Ding Chengyun and Fu Lina (qin and reconstructed se), senior marionette theatre specialist Wang Jingxian from Fujian, prominent contemporary composers Guo Wenjing (Beijing) and Liu Xing (Shanghai), as well as the much talked about contemporary theatre director Li Liuyi (Beijing), plus numerous young Chinese scholars and artists.
You will have occasion to hear the guqin (the classical Chinese 7-stringed zither) played as you have never heard it played before, will be able to attend vocal workshops on folk song, qin songs and Chinese opera led by renowned specialists. All of this will take place in eminently fitting surroundings, with a lot more Chinese music and culture to enjoy, thanks to the impressive 2009-2010 edition of the Europalia festival of which the CHIME conference will be a part.

The upcoming edition of this festival, a biennial event, will be devoted to China. The festival encompasses no less than eighty (!) concerts of Chinese music, with more than 1,000 artists, as well as some forty exhibitions, and countless other activities, in a period spanning four months. Among the many highlights will be performances by the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, the China National Traditional Orchestra (Beijing), but also numerous concerts by rural traditional ensembles and groups, of which several have not performed in the West before. From rowdy shawms and four-stringed fiddles played with bows as thick as broomsticks to the latest fashions in Chinese heavy metal, pop, jazz, and contemporary dance, the festival will have something to offer for everyone's taste!

Poster session

A number of lecture presentations will take place in the framework of a poster session. Presenters invited for this session have already received individual notice about this via email. For the poster session, presenters will be provided with standard-size cartons, on which they can stick photos, printed or written texts etc. We will have cartons, scissors and glue ready in Brussels, but presenters are kindly requested to prepare print-outs and photoprints at home and bring them to Brussels. Visitors will be able watch the posters like in an exhibition; the poster session in its entirety works somewhat like a 'market', with a crowd moving around freely and individually. We will reserve a timeslot of 90 to 120 minutes for this session, with no parallel activities taking place. Presenters can take questions from individual visitors, and may have computers with headphones ready (we will take care of connecting points) to demonstrate moving images or sound examples. In our experience, the poster session is an attractive an effective alternative format for introducing research topics, With the number of presentations offered for Brussels, it is also the only way to schedule everyone whose abstracts have been accepted.

Workshops and Demonstrations

GONG Linna, Beijing, China
Workshop on Chinese Folk Song Singing

ZHAO Chunyan, Shanghai Peking Opera Troupe
Workshop on Peking Opera singing and dance

XIE Zhen, Huanxian Daoist Shadow Puppet Theatre, Gansu
Demonstration: musical instruments and the operation of shadow puppets (with members of the group)

WANG Jingxian, Quanzhou Marionette Puppet Theatre, Fujian
Demonstration: Operating Chinese marionettes (with members of the group)

Concerts and performances

During the 5-day period of the CHIME meeting, a great many concerts of Chinese music will be scheduled in Belgium, for which you can purchase tickets at your own leisure. These include traditional Chinese theatre performances by the Shanghai Peking Opera Troupe, the Huanxian shadow puppeteers and Living Dance Studio in Brussels and Antwerp. Composer Guo Wenjing's fine new opera trilogy 'Heroines' will receive its Belgian premiere, and Liu Sola and other cross-over artists will give concerts in Brussels. Antwerp will host a Shanghai Cultural Week, with Muhai Tang conducting the Flanders Opera Orchestra in works by Chinese composers. The Quanzhou Marionette Theatre of Fujian will perform in Brussels, Eupen and Liege. In the wake of the CHIME meeting, BOZAR in Brussels will organize a China weekend on 5 and 6 December featuring Kun opera, as well as Tibetan, Mongolian, Uighur, Yi, Hani, Zhuang and other ethnic vocal music, plus more puppet theatre (from Zhangzhou) and numerous other events. For more on the programme, you can consult the Europalia festival website at (details to be published after press conference 7 May 2009)

But even if you will just be in Brussels for CHIME, and decide only to follow the CHIME programme, you will not be able to escape a great deal of live music-making and performances.
The concerts and demonstrations scheduled below will be included in the registration fee for the conference, except for the Chinese opera performance on Saturday 21 November:

18 November (afternoon): Quanzhou Marionette Theatre
Afternoon opening of the CHIME conference by one of China's finest puppet play ensembles of today, (and much more)!

18 November (evening): Guqin, on different terms

"Hey, not guqin again, please...!"

Well, we opted for a difference, and organize a yaji ('elegant meeting') that may not be elegant at times, but pleasing (and shocking) enough in its own right. Here are musicians to make you feel nostalgic about the future of the past, because they shape new vistas for China's oldest and most venerated 'high-brow' string instrument.

Senior masters Ding Chengyun and Fu Lina from Wuhan will play unheard-of duets for qin and se (another type of ancient zither). Lin Chen, young disciple of the celebrated traditional master Lin Youren, adds new dimensions to the deep tranquility and power of her father's style of qin playing. She also accompanies Beijing-based singer Gong Linna in a series of ancient classical as well as newly-composed qin songs, transversing an amazing range of Chinese dialects. Co-support is offered by Wang Hua on bamboo flute. Liu Xing, from Shanghai, succesfully transfers the repertoire of the guqin to zhongruan, making it sound like avant-garde, and Luca Bonvini, one of the West's finest qin players, performs John Coltrane on qin. He turns the classical seven-stringed zither into the saxiest of Chinese instruments.

19 November (morning): Huanxian Daoist Shadow Theatre
Demonstration of the puppets and the ensemble music of a truly fine traditional rural ensemble from Huanxian, East Gansu. At home they perform in temple festivals, and help to cure the sick and the needy. In Brussels, there will be opportunity for curious conference-goers to try out the puppets and the shadow screen for themselves, but also, perhaps, to get blessed by a pantheon of local Gansunese gods and spirits! Those who like to explore the full range of this group's (magnificent) repertoire may want to attend the evening programmes of 20 and 21 November at the Theatre National in Brussels.

19 November (evening): China Blossoms
The old clashes with the new in friendly fashion in this remarkable bouquet of Chinese string instrumental music, adorned with film interviews. The time-honoured art of Li Guangzu, splendid senior pipa master of the silk string era (son of the famous Li Tingsong) is contrasted here with the virtuoso modern-style pipa playing of Zhao Cong, a fantastic young pipa soloist from Beijing. Likewise, Chen Qijun, only in his forties, and already one of the finest traditional style performers of Chaozhou (southern Chinese style) zheng music, will pitch his introvert and meditative traditional solos against the sexy ensemble pieces of the Beijing zheng trio 'San Chuan'. All these performers, steeped in very different musical styles and epochs, can truly make their strings sing, and they perform with rare commitment. Forget about 'the conservatory style' - come and hear this!

21 November: Shanghai Peking Opera Troupe: The Silver Serpent

A crew of nearly eighty from Shanghai will assemble at the Bourla Theatre in Antwerp for a grand-style performance of the Peking Opera classic 'The Legend of the White Snake'. A feast for the eye and the ear, and one of this group's most succesful productions in recent years. Since Antwerp is only half an hour from Brussels, we hope to be able to get our conference participants there comfortably by buss.

22 November: MIM afternoon jamboree
A free for all Sunday afternoon concert by CHIME participants in the main concert hall of the Musical Instrumental Museum Brussels, to conclude our 2009 conference in festive style. Be prepared for surprises, and don't hesitate to contribute to the surprise element yourself!


The Musical Instruments Museum (MIM) will host an exhibition on Chinese musical instruments, illuminating a broad variety of urban and rural musical traditions. Since CHIME will be hosted by the MIM, concert participants will have ample opportunity to enjoy the displays. The Europalia Festival will host a total of some forty exhibitions devoted to China, including a presentation on folklore art, and numerous cultural exhibitions.

The Palais des Beaux-Arts (BOZAR) will host several major events, notably an exhibition devoted to Chinese emperors, and one devoted to Chinese literati life. One further exhibition that we would like to bring to your special attention will deal with Chinese puppetry, in all its aspects. We are promised a truly gorgeous display, with numerous interactive installations and live demonstrations. Since puppetry is also one of the major themes of the Europalia Festival (with five different groups from China participating), you can read more about this event below.

The world of Chinese puppetry, Bozar, November-December 2009
China may not have its own Pulcinella or Pinocchio, but it has the Monkey King: a magically gifted monkey who frightens the wits out of the Gods in Heaven by stealing the Peaches of Immortality, and eating them all! The Monkey King shares with his European counterparts not only a highly volatile character, or a rare combination of virtue, cleverness and naughtiness, but also ­ in the case of Pulcinella ­ many of his mystical and carnivalesque connotations. For people who love puppetry, China's miniature stages and shadow screens may soon have a homely feel!

Puppetry in China, as in so many parts of the world, emerged thousands of years ago as a magical theatre in the framework of religious observances. Its stories offer ample room for moralizing and ritual doctrine, but Chinese puppet plays are first and foremost packed with action. Many performers are great masters of their art, whose puppets execute the most incredible actions and acrobatic feats. Puppets dress or undress, smoke, drink wine, play musical instruments, dance and move like human beings... The gamut of Chinese puppet plays ­ like that of its bigger stage pendant, Chinese opera ­ runs from delicate lyrical drama to spectacular fighting scenes, from classical romance to slapstick. Most puppet plays are actually operas, with one or more singers and instrumental accompaniment, and countless regional genres and musical styles have emerged in the course of time in almost every part of China.

Puppetry frequently transcends the world of ordinary man, and explores the realms of the super-powerful, the supernatural, and the fantastic: in Chinese genres, we may run into the Goddess of the Moon, or meet a procession of musicking animal spirits, or watch the Eight Immortals at work, floating by on high clouds... A truly impressive wealth of different genres ­ from shadow theatre to marionette theatre, from stick and glove puppets to water puppets, from rod puppets to 'flesh' puppets ­ is matched by an equally impressive craftsmanship on the part of puppet makers and related craftsmen. The exquisitely carved wooden puppets from the National Arts Museum of China in this exhibition may serve as a case in point.

Chinese puppetry today flourishes in a great many different contexts, from rural rituals to modern urban stage entertainment, from TV animation to cyberspace games. If, in the last two centuries, China's turbulent history has seen an initial decline of many traditional forms, it has also witnessed many splendid revivals and new developments. New media now offer fierce competition to local puppet shows, but they have also given important impulses to the innovation of puppetry, as this rich exhibition will show. Fluorescent paint, laser light, computer-steered animation and a wide range of other new techniques are now used to guide (or misguide!) the spectator's eye.

In the meantime, many rural traditions in China continue to thrive beyond expectation, with their local ritual functions intact. This exhibition draws in particular on the local shadow puppetry of Huanxian, a barren region in eastern Gansu (West China), where more than forty shadow puppet troupes continue to be active today. With Chinese New Year, when fireworks are lit in this region¹s capital, it is nearly impossible to round any street corner of the small town without bumping into a shadow theatre performance! The delicate 'cowskin babies' ­ as they are lovingly called ­ of local Huanxian artisans are not only fine samples of craftsmanship, but are sometimes hardly any less fantastic or capricious than the paintings of Hieronymus Bosch or Hokusai.

Puppet groups performing in Belgium in the framework of Europalia are: the Marionette Theatre of Quanzhou, the Zhangzhou Handpuppet Theatre from Fujian, the Yangzhou hand and wire puppet ensemble from Jiangsu, the Tangshan Municipal Shadow Theatre Company, and the Daoist Shadow Theatre from Huanxian (Gansu).
