Ruo, Huang – “Red Rain” – [Innova/American Composers]
Huang Ruo (b. 1976 Hainan, China)
Modern Classical from this young Chinese composer. Without much fanfare, these pieces are inquisitive, interesting, subtle. A fresh perspective.
Christina Mamakos, an artistic collaborator, describes his compositional technique “dimensionalism” as follows: “Using an inventive musical voice which draws equal inspiration from Chinese folk, western avant-garde, rock and jazz, Ruo creates a seamless series of musical works that do not necessarily exist in the sound world of our daily life.”
