用歌聲頌讚上天賜予大地萬物,以歌聲傳遞對祖先敬愛,對文化的熱情
讓世界驚豔臺灣 讓臺灣綻放世界

We are a group of thirteen indigenous students from seven of Taiwan’s tribes, gathering and dreaming of promoting Taiwan indigenous culture to the world. We have visited the Philippines and India, spreading our voices to Austronesia and South Asia.
This summer we have been invited to San Francisco and Oregon State for the biggest festival of American indigenous tribes – Pow wow. We praise God and nature through our voices and show our respect to our ancestors and our culture.
We invite you to join us and make Taiwan stunning to the world.

出國前,我們將舉辦音樂募款分享會

D3whiteChenLi-sPainted Sun 日
Painted Sun is the brainchild of American-born, Taipei-based composer musician Scott Prairie who was fortunate enough to meet and collaborate with two knock out Taiwanese musicians. The result is a set of songs that are a rich theatrical, joyful, rock pop opera celebration. Lead singer Jessica (HsinTien) Huang (黃心恬) is a natural born front woman and street dancer, her mind blowing energy goes right to and through the heart. Yuju Weng (翁于茹) was trained at the respected Berklee college of music and is in high demand as a sound effects coordinator for events throughout Taiwan, she offers creative environments on multiple instruments, along with Scott on bass guitar.

發芽於定居台灣的美籍音樂創作家Scott Prairie,音樂命運串聯起另外兩位充滿新生創意的台灣音樂種子。Painted Sun的音樂有著多種張力,樂曲意境與畫面、穿梭搖滾與流行、歌頌自在與愉悅。
主唱心恬有著分享溫暖能量的特質,同時也對街舞、接觸即興有份執著。樂手于茹從波士頓百克里音樂學院畢業,是位聲音特效執行專才,並善用旋律組合音效環扣氛圍。結合Scott的電貝斯,Painted Sun將凝聚出不同的「身音感受」。

Before moving to Taiwan Scott performed in many of New York City’s most respected centers for creative art as a singer songwriter and experimental musician, including CBGB’s, The Kitchen, and The Knitting Factory and worked with members of groups such as Guided By Voices and Sonic Youth. Since moving to Taiwan he has performed in twenty-three countries including The Kennedy Center and The Melbourne International Arts Festival with Taipei-based world music group A Moving Sound, which he co-created with his wife Mia Hsieh. Their music has been featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered”, BBC Radio 3, Huffington Post and The Discovery Channel.

One of Scott’s songs was used in a 711 commercial for City Cafe that featured Guay luen mei 桂綸美 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5mb_6_E8Uo
在移居台灣之前,Scott曾以歌手、作曲家、實驗音樂家等身份,在紐約許多知名的場所公開演出。(包含CBGB’s, The Kitchen, 以及 The Knitting Factory。且曾與Guided By Voices 和 Sonic Youth的團員合作音樂專案)
隨後在台灣與妻子謝韻雅Mia一同創立「聲動樂團A Moving Sound」,至今與團員曾抵達二十三個國家,參與The Kennedy Center 和 The Melbourne International Arts Festival等活動,共同演奏世界音樂。
聲動樂團的音樂曾經與許多國際的傳播媒體合作,如 NPR’s “All Things Considered”, BBC Radio 3, Huffington Post 以及The Discovery Channel。Scott的歌曲也與台灣 7-11 City Cafe的廣告合作配樂(City Cafe featured 桂綸美 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5mb_6_E8Uo

2 June 2016, Maybe Alien @ the Red Room

Dan and Veronica PosterMaybe Alien @ the Red Room

Date 日期:June 2nd, Thursday
Doors Open 入場:6:15PM
Performance 表演開始:6:30PM-9:30PM
Your Patronage 支持費:300NT (Includes one drink 包含一杯飲料)

From time to time, Red Room invites live bands to serenade the ears and souls of our music loving friends.
紅房會不定期的邀請樂團現場表演,帶給你優美又動人心弦的音樂。

____________________________________________________________________________

Dan has been playing and performing for over fifteen years and has lived
in Taiwan since August 2014. He teaches Drama and English literature in
Yangmingshan and as well as teaching, he enjoys singing and playing music
live, dancing salsa and writing. He comes from an Irish family but has
lived most of his life in York in England.
The songs that he writes are mainly about people; our behaviours, failings
and beauty. He likes to write and sing about what drives us towards our
goals, whatever they may be.
He’s currently in the process of recording his first album in Taiwan with
Veronica.

Veronica and Dan met through a mutual friend. Dan was in search of a
cellist who was slightly weird (Chi Guàiyì de rén) and he found Veronica.
Veronica’s ability to create little riffs of magic in her cello playing
adds a wanted sadness to the music they create together.
Veronica has played in more ‘ROCK’ bands before –

and so has Dan –

http://www.danoshea.net
But both have decided to take a break from all of the loud noise and
create a softer, more harmonious sound for their audiences.
Their overall message is to be true to yourself – Even if it looks ugly.
There is truth in it. There is poetry in it.

Veronica:
Veronica is not of woman born. Veronica spawns from a creature that our
kind have never encountered.
Veronica is ‘Alien’. The Veronica you see before you has learnt to play
the cello and is learning human ways as quickly as possible.
Veronica is neither ‘He’ nor ‘She’. Veronica prefers to just be ‘Alien’.

Dan:
Dan is a singer who tries to play guitar. He also tries to sing. Sometimes
it works out OK. Sometimes not.
Dan is a non-committal kind of person whose often use of the term ‘Maybe’
is the reason behind the band’s name.
Dan, along with Alien, play music to depress, anaesthetise, sedate and
lead their followers into a state of ‘Requiem for a Dream’ on eternal
repeat.

8 April 2016, Gong Bath: Listening to the Sound of the Universe

Gong notes are beautiful and strong vibrations, a gong bath repeatedly stacked over top one another. Like water droplets hitting the surface of your skin, as if washing your body under a waterfall of the sound of gong. Gong is the only musical instrument that can tap into the inner depths of the divine creation of space vibrations. The sound of gong is the sound of the soul. When we strike the gong, it is like striking the percussion of the universe, into the vast galaxy whirlpool, washing both body and mind. Sonic sound makes us calm, relaxed, and also closer to the inner self.

This time gong bath, the international Gong Master Gongmuse Surana will play a lot of plant gongs such as sun, five planets of the solar system, earth and moon…etc. Bring us travel in the sound sea of universe.
