YI KING

Sound exploration of the Yi King Art
by JF Blanquet, Carl Y, Nicolas Montgermont and RYBN
This is both a serie of experimentations on using the numerous relationships of the Yi King to constraint an improvised music session and a way to answer a question asked to the Yi king in sound. Each consultation defines a number of rules for the sound setup and a specific time development canvas.
