This work has been commissioned by Chinese Arts Now and is supported with funding from Arts Council England and Help Musicians UK.
From Chinese Arts Now:
Belle Chen has been commissioned by Chinese Arts Now for a new work following her performance of Global Soundscapes in our 2019 Festival at LSO St.Luke’s. Belle is one of only three artists to receive a commission from CAN for its next festival in February 2020, and she will receive the largest award.
CAN is supporting Belle, because it recognises that Belle makes a significant contribution to experimental and contemporary music that aligns with CAN’s aim to break-down traditional stereotypes of Chinese culture.
CAN is the first National Portfolio Organisation with Arts Council England to specifically support Chinese heritage artists (chineseartsnow.org.uk)
