Rosey Chan has been appointed Creative Director of the first Hong Kong Liberatum Festival, a major international cultural festival and summit, which will take place in HK April 2012.
Pianist, performance artist, composer and curator, Rosey Chan lives and works in London where she regularly performs and collaborates on a myriad of projects with artists working in dance, visual art, film, architecture, music, and fashion.
Classically trained at the Royal College of Music, she has performed at many internationally-renowned venues including the Royal Opera House, the Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall, the Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall and the Pompidou Centre.
In 2008, Rosey began to diversify her repertoire by absorbing influences as various as jazz improvisation, contemporary electronic music, film scoring and performance art.
Her multi-media performances have premiered at Frieze Art Fair and the Hong Kong Art Fair.
Rosey’s first solo album ‘ONE’ was produced by Sting and featured tracks by, among others, Bach, Debussy, Bill Evans and Tom Waits. Her next album ‘Surface Tensions’ is in production.
Rosey’s ongoing series of explorations and collaborations examine the context in which her influences combine, and by subtly shifting the emphasis of one element in relationship to another creates a new perspective; using her inventive instincts to create something rigorously grounded that also breaks the constraints of convention. Thus creating a new artistic space for herself.
Bach, Bill Evans, fashion, photography, film and art all converse with each other…
