THAT! Ensemble performing for Chaos Theory

THAT! Ensemble is by far one of my favourite projects – singing with these wonderful women keeps my voice, my body, my creativity, and my soul in shape! This term, we are excited to be making a new piece for Chaos Theory’s gig at SET Dalston, featuring other amazing acts including Mother Disorder and Drekka. As an improvising ensemble, our…

Amway Gala Dinner

In the three plus years I have lived in London, I have only gotten to perform in Chinese once, and that was on an inflatable stage at Chinese New Year nearby Trafalgar Square. Finally, I was booked to do a complete gig in Mandarin! This time, for Taiwanese Amway’s Gala Dinner. Random, yes, but a great opportunity to dust off…

If Only We Had Met Before I Was Married 恨不相逢未嫁时 English Translation

恨不相逢未嫁时 If Only We Had Met Before I Was Married 冬夜里吹来一阵春风 A spring breeze drafts through the winter night 心底死水起了波动 The stagnant water at the bottom of my heart begins to move 虽然那温暖片刻无踪 Even though that warm moment is without a trace 谁能忘却了失去的梦 who can forget lost dreams? 你为我留下一篇春的诗 You left a spring poem for me 却教我年年寂寞度春时 that taught me…

Waiting for Your Return 等着你回来 English Translation

等着你回来  Waiting for Your Return 我等着你回来 我等着你回来 I wait for your return 我想着你回来 我想着你回来 I wish for your return 等你回来让我开怀 Thinking of your return makes me happy 等你回来让我关怀 Thinking of your return makes me concerned 你为什么不回来 你为什么不回来 Why don’t you return? I will wait for your return 我要等你回来 我要等你回来 I will wait for your return 还不回来春光不再 The spring light has faded, and you do…

Can’t Get Your Love 得不到的爱情 English Translation

得不到的爱情 Can’t Get Your Love 我得不到你的爱情 Can’t get your love 像冬夜里没有光明 Like a cold winter night can’t get sunlight 你不给我一颗痴心 You don’t give me any tenderness 像黑夜里头找不到那踪影 Like looking for a shadow in the pitch black night 我得不到你的爱情 Can’t get your love 像春花没有雨淋 Like a flower without even a sprinkle of rain 你不给我一颗痴心 You don’t give me any tenderness 像梦里春花留下一点幻影…

Don’t Sing 不要唱吧 English Translation

不要唱吧 Don’t Sing 不要唱吧不要唱吧 Don’t sing, don’t sing 诗呀曲呀 poetry or lyrics 你们说太高雅 you all speak so fancy 不要唱吧不要唱吧 don’t sing, don’t sing 情呀爱呀 feelings or love 他们说太肉麻 your speech is all so sickening 轻松的不伟大 relaxed isn’t mighty 雄壮的又可怕 brave but still frightened 庄严的没有人爱它 stately but no one loves you 不要唱吧不要唱吧 don’t sing don’t sing 不开口免得人家骂 if you don’t open…

Groznjan Cabaret Video

Congratulations to anyone who actually wades through this video and either watches the whole thing or finds the songs they are interested in. Who watches 30 minute concerts on youtube? Well, maybe my parents, but I wouldn’t even put it past them to stop after the first song. Also, I think I had a smudge of dirt or lipstick or…

Songs from the Labyrinth

A cast of voices, grand piano, multiple flutes and aerial acrobatics bring to life master composers from Renaissance to French impressionism and beyond in the hidden recesses of a converted factory at Beijing’s famous 798 Art District. Lose yourself in a sumptuous, haunting journey of melancholy and rapture. Music by Bartok, Debussy, Faure, Gesualdo, Handel, Messiaen, Ravel, Respighi, and Stravinsky.…

I Am a Vamp, by Mischa Spoliansky

I have a lot of video from all three performances of the Vamps.Vixens.Vintage cabaret. However after reviewing it, I’ve found that much of the footage only captures chunks of songs, or that the images aren’t good enough. Now I truly appreciate the difficulty of filming live performances! And of editing them…arg. In the end, I can say I got one…

The Magic of Groznjan

I have returned from Groznjan! It is always hard to put into words the wonder and delight that one experiences there; it’s like being put under a spell. You operate without clocks and without the demands of modern life. The scenery invites contemplation and relaxation, the people are welcoming and caring. The result is not only excellent music making, but…
