Sound/scapes: Theresa Wong

Bay Area composer, cellist, and vocalist Theresa Wong reimagines artworks in the museum’s collection through the medium of sound with three site-specific performances of newly composed and improvised work. The second concert of the series will be performed on cello and voice and is inspired by the museum’s extensive collection of statues of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara, also known in Chinese as Guanyin. Known as the Bodhisattva of Compassion, this deity has shape-shifted through many cultures including those of Tibet, Japan, India, and China, changing gender through the course of history. The formal Chinese name, ‘Guan-Shih-Yin’ translates to ‘The one who hears all the sounds of the world’.
