Exciting events coming up in the next week or so. A special thanks to Una for the Soundscapes and Sound Identities symposium.
Robert Robertson has a new series called Rabelaisdada and it is wickedly funny. Here is the link to the site. I am just getting started on it and it certainly has peaked my interest. More on this soon

I had a great time and saw two really superb performances from Khristian and David. I was actually able to screen quite a few of my films from 2007-2008-which was also really nice.
Thanks to Khristian and David for making it happen! It was a special night.
I am really pleased to announce that People’s Park Reverie, which is part of my Summer Trilogy, will be screened tomorrow night at the Hundred years Gallery in London. The event is curated by the Zone collective, which is based in Brighton. Here is a description,
“Chris H. Lynn’s three short films, ‘A Trilogy of Summer’ (2010, 2012) were filmed in China: in Nanjing and in Shanghai. ‘Morning Fisherman’ is a quiet moment set by a lake. This film features the magic of the mists which are often shown in the Chinese landscape painting tradition. ‘Afternoon Rain in Nanjing’ is more urban: here the natural element is a monsoon rainstorm. The third film, ‘People’s Park Reverie’, continues Lynn’s theme of water, with its rhythmic reflections and musical colours, in an urban park in Shanghai”. Here is a link to the program. If you are in London, check it out-The program looks great! Thanks to the Zone Collective and Robert Robertson.

Lynlee composed a track specifically for Haze’s latest Sound Interpretation series dedicated to Jack Kerouac. The track entitled “A Taste of Rainy Dawn” has Una and me reading Kerouac’s haikus in English and Korean with additional field recordings and soundscapes. The piece was really a pleasure to make and we hope it captures a certain feeling in the haikus. To listen or download go here. Lots of great things to discover. More from Lynlee soon.
