A Dust in Time

Mar 7

The intention behind A Dust in Time is to offer a moment of hope and light. Or, as Ruo puts it, “This reality has made me think of creating a special piece for the people who are living in the shadow or coming out of the shadow, giving them a piece of music to reflect, to express, to mount, to bury, to find internal peace and strength, to heal, and to find hope, light and warmth.”

Asko|Schönberg has a strong artistic connection with the Chinese-American composer. He has worked together with our musicians in Amsterdam at multiple occasions. As an artist, Ruo feels a strong desire to create work that responds to the pandemic and the effect it has had on many.
