The Michela Amici Trio plays Collage in discord (2020) by composer Esther Wu from Hong Kong, originally written for a cancelled Club Fluxus concert. In Collage in discord Esther Wu attempts to explore the uncertainty of discordance among three instrumentalists and the electronics within a fixed framework. Due to the pandemic, the composition has been developed working remotely with the ensemble, which provided interesting challenges and inspiration. The visuals are realized by Esther Wu especially for the online première at Gaudeamus.
