Esther Wu – The Other

This concert has already taken place. Click here for our current concert programme.

Esther Chi Ching Wu is a composer whose works include cross-media, scenography, interactive media, and sound installations in public spaces. At Gaudeamus 2022, Esther presents her unique audio spatial installation The Other, an installation for one person to experience at a time. The participant has the authority to influence the outcome of the work, be the subject of the work, or perform part of the work. A participatory experience that aims to sonically engage the individual in a highly reflective and domestic space full of mirrors and daily objects.

Credits: Two tracks for this installation were developed by Esther and various artists during a residency for IRCAM’s Manifest:
Imitation – Between Sheng Player and Saxophonist – performed by Li-Chin Li (Sheng Player) and Gerald Preinfalk (Saxophonist)
Imitation II – Among vocalist, sound artist, and electric guitarist – performed by Esther Wu (vocalist), Samuel Long (electronics/sound artist), and Johan Blixt (electric guitarist)

This installation was made possible with the support of Performing Arts Fund NL, ULYSSES Network, and Creative Europe.
