PAN Project

When: Wed., Feb. 15, 7 p.m. 2017

When American sound artist Jeffrey Roberts and Korean piri master Gamin (pictured) met at a music festival, they discovered a shared frustration. As Roberts explained to Curious Arts last year, “Nowadays in western countries … when East Asian musicians play with western players, the direction of the improvisation tends to head more in a direction to the West.” To counter this trend, Roberts and Gamin joined forces to form the PAN Project, an ensemble of virtuosic masters of traditional East Asian instruments such as the Chinese guqin and Japanese taiko drums. Roberts, Gamin and company kick off their U.S. tour with an improvised concert including pieces inspired by a well-known Korean folk song and Japanese Kabuki and Noh theater music.

Price: $10-25.
