FXG VR was invited to be a designated partner for the Global Virtual Reality Conference at the end of June. The famous pianist, Kong Xiangdong made an opening performance at the conference.
During one of Nick’s interviews, Mr. Kong helped act as an interpreter for some of the more difficult words, and they subsequently became good friends!
Kong Xiangdong is one of the best and most active Chinese pianists in the international realm. He is also an international, interactive creator, and is enthusiastic about public charity and environmental protection. Visitors from more than 40 countries and regions have personally experienced his passionate performances. He has been praised by Western media outlets as being “one of the most exciting and ingenious pianists of this century”. He worked with the Italian composer, George O. Moroder to create the 2008 Olympics’ song, "Forever Friends".
This month, Nikk went to Shanghai again, and was fortunate enough to hear some of his impromptu works.
How do you feel about this piece of music after listening?
What does music mean to Mr. Kong?
He said, "there is nothing in the world that can transcend music. We can see a painting, and we can read words, but we cannot touch music. Music is the language of the soul. After dedicating myself to music for decades, I realized that everything that seems ‘real’ in the world is vain, while the things that seem to be the vainest are the most real. The spiritual recourse of people goes along with life, but not everyone can gain the perception of the mind. As a music practitioner, I should be full of warmth in order to spread music, not only on the stage, but during every stage of life, at anytime."
