New Piano Performing Art
AMORE is an avant-garde production created to elevate the artistry of performing, conceptual, kinetic, digital, video, and abstract art. Paul Chiang’s paintings are the foundation from which 3D animation techniques catalyze the art to life. Through the combination of intense piano repertoires, multimedia technology, contemporary and abstract moving art, diverse styles are revealed to present a dramatic music-based performing art that is a banquet for the senses. Of all the emotions, the most seductive and touching is Love. Love is my muse and is the most inspirational and greatest charm of all time. Though the focus is Amore, I also hope to elegantly unite all seven human emotions (Joy, Anger, Sorrow, Fear, Love, Hate, Affection) along with the five Eastern Elements (Gold, Wood, Water, Fire, Earth) to create a dramatically diverse program of Western Classical music and performing art. All in, to achieve a mutual interdependence Yin-Yang balance.
