about

Carolyn Chen on "MADE IN CHINA, MADE IN CALIFORNIA"

I was born in New Jersey and raised in California, but grew up with people assuming I was from somewhere else. Usually China. Having never been there, I spent a fair amount of time imagining what it was like. This year, I am living in China for the first time. So I asked some people in China and in California how they imagine the other place. This is a collection of small musics, moving around, listening to, predicting, or conversing with their thoughts. The score includes some notes and some games with video* sounds and images – jamming to overheard dance music, synchronizing to the chewing of an apple.
