“Brain is not the place where thinking comes out.” In the Japanese novel Dogura Magura, the doctor proclaimed.
“Brain is a protein solid without nerve or sense.” “Our spirit or living consciousness rest on each corner of our body.” “We can always feel that all our desires, emotions, wills, memories, judgments, faith, etc., equally scattered on each of our 30 million cells.”
No-brain Improvisation is an attempt to practice and prove what was told in Dogura Magura.
DO NOT use the brain during creation and performance – try to abandon all the concepts, aesthetics, logic, thinkings, judgments and decisions that made by the brain. Let body and instinct do the job. It’s like in a daze or about to falling asleep.
The first series live performance of this project were put at the last of each Zooming Night in September, 2014, when everybody was exhausted and absent-minded, including the performers and the audience. Invited musicians were Li Qing, Liu Xinyu and Adam MacGregor.
This album is a solo recording during March to April of 2016.
