The wind wuthering - Shuning DIAO

Presented during the IRCAM Forum Workshops 2023 in Paris.

This work is constructed with a series of customized 埙(Xun), which is a traditional Chinese instrument. These Xun will look like beautiful, colorful vases with holes, and when the wind goes through these holes, a sharp whistle will sound. Poems are also complemented with whistle sounds that tell the stories of women as read by feminist poets. The vases are made to depict the women's body figures, as they may sing along with their own stories.
