Echo Ho (Friday, 8pm)
Echo Ho is a Beijing-born, Cologne-based sound artist with an interdisciplinary approach. At various intersecting domains, she consistently consolidates very different elements from diverse media and genres. Her artworks seek to refract and transform perceptions of reality. During the past decade, Ho has mainly worked on a body of work entitled SlowQin, a hybrid resemblance of the Qin, a unique Chinese instrument with a musical history spanning three millennia. Undertaken with an open-ended rethinking process, she reinvents the Qin, adapting it for the creation of contemporary electro-acoustic music and performance.
