Zoomin'Night:

"Conscious Feedback Group (CFG) is a gang of three formed in 2018 by MAI mai, Xu Cheng and Jun-Y Ciao. Improvisation is their way. They use mediums of music, sound, text and performance to explore a non-identifiable style that has nothing to do with fancy illusions.'

Track information:

"Tune of Heart"

Recorded live at NEXTMIXING, Shanghai, 3 May 2021.
Jun-Y Ciao: Vocal, Chinese Flute
MAI mai: Vocal, Tocante Karper
Xu Cheng: Vocal, Relay Synth, Bialitti Brikka

This live recording is CFG's iterative improvisation between semantic, phonetic, vocal and musical sounds, based on a two-page fragment of text from Yang Sao's poetic drama "Tune of Heart", written in 1924.

"From Empty"

Recorded live at the Ming Room, Shanghai, on 29 August 2021.
Jun-Y Ciao: Clarinet
MAI mai: Guitar
Xu Cheng: Gong and Bowls

Live recording from one of the "Voice of Turtle" series organized by Zhu Songjie.
The first half is based on a very "Post-Garde" concept: when a C pentatonic (C, D, E, G, A) is coupled on a D pentatonic (D, E, F #, A, B), a Gagaku C Lydian Mode is formed: C, D, E, F #, G, A, B. Each of the three performers improvises on one of the scale bases, gradually adding notes.
The second half is an improvisation without any arrangement.
