Work in progress: From 18 Stanzas Sung to a Tatar Reed Whistle

This beautiful Chinese epic poem tells of the abduction of the poet Ts’ai Yen by Nomadic warriors and of her life in a Tatar camp. The poet wrote this epic in 200 AD and it has inspired other poems, paintings and music ever since.

This work will be performed in 2019. It will be in part programmed to be performed by the motors, and in part will be performed manually.
