She has participated in many interdisciplinary works with Chinese orchestras and Legend Lin Dance Theatre in Taiwan.

Her current projects also include collaborating with artist and guitarist Kevin McGrath as a music improvisation duo “Lin and McGrath.” In Lin’s music and sound practice, she focuses on the relationship between her body movements and her instrument the Pipa (琵琶). Her performances involve music, sounds, silence, extended techniques, movements, light and shadow.

////// Kin Lam //////

Kin Lam Lam is an artist and percussionist whose work explores the sound, light, electronics, technology, and visual media. Kin Lam explores the world with a beginner’s mind and tries to bring in new possibilities to the things that we encounter everyday. Drawing from his passion of experimenting with sound, Kin pushes electronics into the sonic world and uses them to design experimental instruments and objects from repurposed objects and fields. With a classical percussion background, music and sound art intersect in his work, which include composition with notation and graphic scores, and most recently, amplified (fluorescent) lights and electromagnetic noises have been his medium. Rhythm, tamber, and material are focused in on in his works, which range from instrument construction to composition and performance with digital, analog, and non-electronic instruments.

Kin Lam holds a Bachelor’s degree in percussion performance from Sam Houston State University, and is currently pursuing a MFA in sound at School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

////// bdynse //////

bdynse is an interdisciplinary performance duo featuring artists Jubilee Tai and Scott Rubin, whose work fuses sound and movement to create immersive audio-visual experiences. They explore analog and digital relationships between sound and movement through the use of interdisciplinary improvisation frameworks, live audio and visual electronics, cameras, and motion sensors.
