Composer Caitlin Yeo found inspiration in her own family background for the beautiful and profound score she wrote and performed for Ochre and Ink:
My use of Chinese Bamboo Flutes
In the music I wrote for Ochre and Ink I used four traditional Chinese bamboo flutes given to me by my father after his visit to Mainland China over 20 years ago.
Born in Singapore, my father’s heritage is both Peranakan and Chinese.
When I performed and recorded the flutes, I wanted to be influenced by the Chinese pentatonic modes, and perform them in a non-traditional context. Just as Xiaoping’s art is a modern interpretation on traditional techniques, I too wanted to express that through my music.
Zhou Xiaoping’s incredible painting style is fluid, lyrical, and somewhat earthy, which lends itself to the modern musical score, in which I fused many ideas of old and new.
