From noise music to guqin

In this short interview, Fao explains us what brought him to Asia and what moves him in music creation. He also gives us a glimpse of his eclectic talent by interpreting a guqin piece and a composition of his own mixing tabla and electronic music. Fao will give a concert of guqin on September 11 (19:00) at the "Salon for the Art of Guqin" (n.29 Bo ai rd, Taipei City) and he will also be performing at the Peacefest in Hualien (September 17, 18, 19).

是結束也是開始——世界音樂的匯流

我來自哥倫比亞的波哥大,目前在台北已住了兩年。我喜歡用當代、電子的元素來創作音樂,並將這些聲音與南美、亞洲的傳統音樂互相融合。

我原本在哥倫比亞教音響工程方面的課程,累積足夠的存款後,就開始實現我的夢想——旅行以及學習其他各國傳統樂器。首先,我去了日本,在那裡我和當代噪音音樂家合作,並開始接觸傳統日本音樂。然後我搬到印度去學習印度古典塔布拉鼓樂,最後我來到了台灣,又學習了古箏和太極。

At the Confluence of World Music

Meet Fao, one of the instigators of the Renlai World Music Compilation released in July 2011 with the issue #84 of the magazine.

I hail from Bogotá, Colombia and have been living in Taipei for two years now. I compose music in which I like to use contemporary elements, electronic generated sounds and traditional music from South America and Asia.

After teaching sound engineering in Colombia, I was able to save enough money to fulfill my goal to travel and learn traditional instruments from other parts of the world. I went first to Japan, where I did several collaborations with contemporary noise musicians and also got initiated to traditional Japanese music. Then I moved on to India to learn classical Indian tabla music, before finally arriving in Taiwan where I practice the guqin and Taichi.
