Spectro-7 takes local folk songs, Hakka songs, Nanguan and Beiguan music, Peking Opera and Taiwanese aboriginal music as our axis, fusing with diverse music styles such as popular music, jazz, Latin music, Indian music and other world music in order to create our music that moves people with genuine emotions. By reactivating the ancient melodies in our culture and demonstrating the unique beauty of local music, Spectro-7 establishes a dialogue between the local and the international, between tradition and modernity.
In addition to its original music pieces, Spectro-7 is also outstanding on its aesthetics of performing.
Inspired by the works of calligraphy master Tong Yang-tze, Spectro-7’s costumes are made by renowned designer Chou Yu Ying and presented on stage with sophisticated lighting, which perfectly displays our delicate philosophy of design. During the performance, participative sections are organized, inviting our audience to sing together with the music. With the trans-disciplinary innovation and moved by the sensitivities displayed in the melody, the audience will be able to resonate with our musicians’ love and passion towards our land.
With his background in traditional Chinese opera, our Artistic Director Wu Chang Chun is not only most popular musician of world music in the nation, but also a famous percussionist in popular music. Based on Wu’s attainment in Chinese traditional music and his numerous stage experience, combining with the unique composing style of each member of Spectro-7, we expect to eliminate the barrier between traditional music and the public, breaking the existing frame and bringing a new life to the ancient. The collision between different music styles will certainly provoke imagination of the audience and lead to extensive possibilities in the future.
