Grain in Ear 《芒种》 Erhu and Ruan EDM MV

Jonathan Rao (Ruan musician, Singapore Chinese Orchestra)

With this music video, I wanted to explore something really bold with traditional Chinese instruments. From its conceptualisation of experimenting with electronic music, interdisciplinary collaborations with fashion and hip-hop, to its final materialisation. This is in line with my vision of reinventing and reimagining the Erhu (and Chinese music) in a modernised society, that also best represents my unique artistic identity.
