the wayward child sees the light

chinese orchestra has always been in my blood,
my dad plays the erhu and flute,
my mum plays the pipa,
and of course in the early courting days
my dad pretended to learn the pipa from my mum
just to spend time with her :)

i think this performance made my parents very very happy :)

i was given the chance to perform with the Singapore Chinese Orchestra,
and one of my original songs 心型空洞 was arranged by Tan Kah Yong, in full-blown Chinese Orchestra style!!!

Photobucket
Kah Yong and his wife caught in the audience :)
It was great working with him the 1st time, and I was thrilled by the sound of my own song :)

Photobucket
with Quek Ling Kiong the conductor... he is awesommmee!
Super nice, with such flair and style in conducting

during rehearsals :)

i also played the erhu on the traditional piece called 赛马
(playing in front of the full-time pros is no joke!!)

my only regret is that this chinese orchestra version will only be available as a live fuzzy youtube one.

ps. love the 萧 solo in the interlude!!!

My song is officially A Hole in Heart Shape.
Ok, the original meaning of Heart-Shaped Hole doesn't sound terrific either.

And it is
"a popular song composed by Tay Kewei, this piece expresses the laments of the heartbroken female lead who can't bear to give up her lover who has continuously let her down."


My first official introduction of my song on print!
haha


Thanks to Eriol, Nicholas Tan and many more for the lovely photos!
And to everyone who dropped by! :)

不知是否悟对你标题含义:慈父多半不善严教,但也只能说鱼与熊掌兼得不易。不瞒你说,若干年前我也曾在郭君指挥下完成一次自编独奏;是第一次也或许是最后一次。照片中张张熟悉脸孔让我满是怀念从乐期间的点滴。你算是半个专业不是?从你手中的琴看得出点端倪。给这门传统技艺时间作深造,相信会对你的表演创作有所启发和帮助。

ps.间奏乐器应该是唢呐或簧管类吧?

Nice shots, but I really don't like Chinese music or stuff. But as a difference with my oldest brother he love this as he loved Viagra.
