Chi for String Quartet was premiered on 29 April, 2017 by the Spektral Quartet in Chicago.
“The Chinese refer to the vital life force energy of the universe, present within every living thing, as ‘Chi’. Chi has been studied for over ten thousand years, from China and Japan to India, the Hawaiian Islands and South America. Chi is the energy of life itself, recognized as the balance of Yin and Yang (male and female, positive and negative, electromagnetic energy), which flows through everything in creation. The power of Chi emits soulful colors (the Aura), giving expressive vibrational frequency, and sound. Chi flows through the body pathways – known as Meridians (highpoints) and Chakras (deep, subtle spiritual nodes of the profound essential center) – of all living forms.” augustareadthomas.com
