I spent New Year's in Beijing, which was a slightly overwhelming but almost completely positive experience. I met tons of people, saw some great concerts and checked out venues for my VERY MYSTERIOUS next trip to China in May with my VERY MYSTERIOUS new performance project Invisible Anatomy, saw a lot of the city, ate a lot of amazing food, and between two weeks in Beijing and two weeks after coming home to NYC, have been jetlagged for about a month.
I also played a song by my good friend and spa aficionado Zhang Shuai (along with the lovely and stupidly talented Fay Wang) in the Voice of Central Conservatory competition, on a borrowed Telecaster with perhaps the highest action of any guitar I've ever played. It was all pretty surreal.
More on China VERY MYSTERIOUS I mean very soon. Meanwhile, ART:
