TO ensemble performs a series of original works that celebrate the 21st century confluence of the East and the West, bringing together French impressionism, modern jazz and Eastern lyricism. Inspired by the music of Debussy, Ravel, Ryuichi Sakamoto and John Coltrane, the performance juxtapositions colorful sonic tapestries with Asian melodies and exciting bebop improvisations.

This performance-experiment also explores the versatility of western instruments, ie. their ability to mimic the sounds of Asian instruments such as the Gu Zheng, Chinese flute etc
