Good day all,

Here is the debut of Bryan S.Whelan's instrument, inspired by the Chinese zheng instrument. Unofficial name "the Beauty", 14 stringed zither instrument. Which I commissioned him to make. Three amazing years have now led to this very moment in video format for your viewing and listening pleasure.

Enjoy "Storm Ever After" by Vi An, improvising to the rain outside her window.

Inspired by middle easter / indian and persian moods, this is a mess of an improvisation with jittery / glitchy rhythms and scattered melodic offerings.

Just like during a storm.

Regards,
Vi An

here is my odd group of beauty and mystery:

instruments:
voice
percussion
zheng
synthesizers / samplers, real to real / theramin / moogs
grand piano
electric guitar / loops / noise


the zheng gets inputted into all of the electronic devices and each electronic artist manipulates the frequencies and transforms the sound of the zheng in real time at will

everything is improvised there is no rehearsals what so ever, pick a key signature and let er' fly !!

enjoy:

with love and kind regards always,

Vi An
