Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak ; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.
Concert for One is a social experimental and performance arts project. It was was created because I believe life is about the special moments, and we as musicians have the ability and responsibility to create them.
In the last decade, I watched my old school in Taiwan closed down their music department, I watched young audiences and parents turned away from classical music, and I watched my fellow colleagues chose not to continue their careers in Taiwan. It is tempting for us to blame the loss of audience on the general public, how they never gave classical music a chance. But, when I look around in our music world, I see us turning away and relying on the distance between stage and the auditorium more than anytime in history. With this exhibition, which is something that has never been done before, it will be able to give both the audience and musicians a chance to step out of our worlds. I understand nowadays we are all very careful about how to spend our time, and even a classical music concert can seem too time-consuming in this fast paced world, but one minute is never considered long. Not only do I want to bring the audience in, I also want to bring the musicians out. The exhibition is shorter than a concerto and more impactful than a street tune, the multimedia part of the exhibition also has many things to offer for the architecture and visual art admirers. It will draw the attention and awareness with stronger appeal to reach a wider audience. It is something that has never been done before and it will deliver to people.
