Synopsis

Dialogues with Tan Dun

“A person is considered to have reached adolescence at the age 15, it’s a time of dreams, passions, revolutions and innovations. I use rock ‘n’ roll to portray dreams and passion. Atonality, which was first devised in the 20th century, pays homage to revolution and innovation.”

–Tan Dun

“Eccentric composer Tan Dun pays musical homage to his equally unorthodox late mentor John Cage…It’s absolutely the one night in this year’s BMF that is not to be missed — the coolest American musician and most controversial Chinese composer, plus an all-premiere program in China.”

–Chen Jie, China Daily, October 18, 2012
