Activities during the residency

Hong Kong based artist and researcher, Edwin Lo has worked on his on-going artistic research and video essay, “In Searching for Jean-Claude Eloy.” A prominent French electroacoustic composer, Eloy produced numerous works, well-known for their duration and unique approach of sound and composition. Departing from the documentation of the concert in Hong Kong organized by Lo in 2015, the project aims to formulate a composer portrait by incorporating the interviews conducted in Paris and in Hong Kong, excerpts of texts, commentaries by the artist, and sound.

Overview of the residency

I have sticked with my own plan throughout the residency. It is pity that I cannot approach the Buddhist monks that Jean-Claude Eloy worked with. But it was a very nice meeting with Kojima Tsutomu! He is a very nice old man and he took very serious about my interview.
