26 June 2020. The miniature composition The Tao of Mao for big band (2020) by Rozalie Hirs is now online in a Corona proof recording by Modern Art Orchestra, Budapest, Hungary. The music is part of its Art of Virus Project, initiated by Kornél Fekete-Kovács.

The thread that led to Rozalie Hirs’ Tao of Mao (2020) consists of miniatures by Kornél Fekete-Kovács, Péter Eötvös, Samu Gryllus, and Lotta Wennäkoski. Rozalie nominated James Fei (*1974, Taiwan/ USA) to compose a new work in answer to the preceding music compositions.

The live stream of The Tao of Mao (2020), also containing a substantial interview by Kornél with Rozalie about the new work, starts on 26 June 2020 at 20:00 CET on MAO’s Facebook Page.

The video remains available through the link here; Rozalie’s section starts around 27’30” and lasts until about 42’00”. Enjoy the Art of Virus!
