Carolyn Chen has made music for supermarket, demolition district, and the dark. Presented in 20 countries, her work reconfigures the everyday to retune habits of our ears. Recent projects include a story for ASL interpreter strung to chimes at a distance, and pieces for Southland Ensemble and Klangforum Wien. For a decade she has studied the guqin, the Chinese 7-string zither traditionally played for private meditation in nature. As a player, she studied in Hangzhou and Beijing on a Fulbright in 2012, and has performed at The Kitchen in New York, with Wooden Fish Ensemble in San Francisco, and on Beijing sidewalks and the Great Wall in the guqin-electronics duo Tones Bequeathed by Octopus with Amble Skuse.
