Deaf, the victinnitus grey between white sound and black silence and sound and silence, draped in the grey coma-flage of a deaf clef where there are no choices but only the victintinnabulations of realities thought better left unsaid as histories, told and read in black-and-white, say their piece in the ‘technicolor’ that is the black and white of only black or white. Victi-ry of Will’s source material includes rare found audio of all that which remains of a film entiteled Sieg des Willens (Berlin circa 1944/45) based on the autobiography, Nun Erst Recht, by one of Germany’s most interesting, interwar operatic performers.

Hoh Chung Shih studied at King’s College London, and completed a PhD in Composition at the University at Buffalo, where he also studied computer music at the Lejaren Hiller Computer Music Studios. For more than 10 years, he also studied the guqin (Chinese 7-string zither) with Master Ji Zhiqun.

His international presence as composer, through works by commissions and requests from Asia, Europe and America have led him to collaborate with some of world’s premier musicians. Chung Shih is also a sound artist, who works in interdisciplinary collaborations with MLuM, an international artist collective. His interest can be described as an exploration of a double intersection: one between the avant-garde and the experimental, and the other between the international contemporary and traditional Chinese literati cultures.
