Sun’s Resolution with DJ SUNVIEW EVENT DETAILS
For over two decades, Houston Press Music Hall of Famer DJ Sun has been at the forefront of Houston’s live music scene. Always with an eye on the future, his aural palette reaches across funk, soul, jazz, disco, and other genres. Now, in collaboration with Asia Society, DJ Sun looks back over four generations and more than 8,000 miles to pursue his family history from China to the West.
Who am I? Where did I come from? What is my story? Through sights and sounds, this multi-media performance responds to those questions with new music, stunning imagery, and the live energy for which DJ Sun is known. Click here to read a description of the performance’s seven “chapters.”
During the performance, DJ Sun will be joined on stage by artist Us on keyboards, performing amidst an innovative live visual mix, created by Jasmine Lee Richardson and visual projection artist Tim Steinke. A quick set by DJ Melodic will open the performance, and TV personality Ky Meyer.
