Hello friends of the zheng instrument !


I have just uploaded a new piece of improvisation, it has been a long time because I have been working hard in studios recording my 3 new records, one solo, one electronic remixes and one ep of experimental new works where I dare to sing, yes I only sing in the shower to myself !

Please visit my space:

http://www.myspace.com/vian

The first track "Forest" is the new piece for you all to enjoy please !

I performed on the 14 string mini zheng my roommate created for me, with me is Rory on the tabla, he's really awesome and creative, you will hear the beauty of these two instruments becoming one, in the forest of sounds !


Take care everyone and happy strumming,

Vi An

Finally completed my latest electronica album "EXTINCT" a follow up to "ENDANGERED", now available for your listening pleasures:

http://vian.bandcamp.com/album/extinct

Let me know what you think?! It contains a few samples of zheng free form improvisations. Free hand / free style, one take recordings, real time manipulations of software, hardware synths and instruments including piano, zheng, Tibetan singing bowls and other samples of found sounds in my environment. Back to a very elementary way of producing electronic music without all the need to be perfect and overly produced, very manual rather than automated you know? Kinda old-school, kinda contemporary, minimalist and very experimentally fun!

Here is an exciting collaboration between myself and an incredible young electronic artist Willbe:

http://willbe.bandcamp.com/album/melodic-instrumental-hip-hop-ep

This track is extremely sexy, yes?!
So fresh! I love the way he works the zheng samples so deliciously!



etc... ...
