Rosey Chan ‘One’ – 20th September 2010....
Ho Hum Records are delighted to announce the release of classical pianist Rosey Chan’s debut album “One”.
Produced by Sting, the album showcases a genre-blending combination of classical and jazz with Chan’s interpretations of works by Bach, Debussy, Bill Evans and Tom Waits.
Born to Chinese parents and living in England, Chan graduated from the Royal Academy of Music and began her career as one half of the Yukawa-Chan duo with concert appearances at some of the world’s most prestigious venues including The Royal Albert Hall and Carnegie Hall.
In 2008 Rosey began focussing on solo work, widening her musical landscape and drawing on influences other than pure classical repertoire such as jazz improvisation, contemporary electronic music and performance art. With this new found love of performance art, Rosey discovered a passion for performing in more unconventional establishments; ‘Le Poisson Rouge’ in New York’s old Village Gate, ‘The Norwood House’ NY, ‘The Box’ NY, ‘The 100 club’, London. Rosey’s multimedia performance art piece "March of the Jingoists", a one-woman show premiered as part of ‘Frieze 2009’. Rosey has embarked on a series of collaborations with dancers, filmmakers, architects, fashion designers and artists as well as being the face of ‘C-Music’ TV channel.
In Miss Chan’s latest performances she pushes several boundaries. Premiering in Paris during Paris fashion week, the audience was presented with a Rosey Chan duet, half pre-recorded and projected, the other half live and improvised-developed in collaboration with Mike Figgis, himself no stranger to performance art. She premieres her new piece at the HK international art fair in May 2010.
An impromptu concert convinced rock legend Sting to co-produce at his Italian studio, lending his expertise to help Rosey form her debut album; with it’s cross-over appeal together with the unique live shows, this year could well be the one for Rosey Chan.
