I ran into Marc Chan on the web yesterday via his Myspace band page. I remember when I first heard his works, a piece called “J’s Box 2 for Five Oboes.” I sent Steve Layton a message and said check this guy out.
So yesterday I visited and noticed he has been working on a piece called “My Wounded Head.” It was performed over at Carnegie Hall by Xiayin Wang. NY Times did a little write up on it. A very cool work, showing off all registers of the piano from top to bottom, combined with expressive power and sensitivity.
