Music X Habitat X Art challenges the contemplation of classical music through the lens of the subconscious, asking the viewers to challenge their preconceived notions of what music and art can be on a journey beyond the familiar.

The struggle of consciousness’ ascent toward meaning and light is like a lotus flower which struggles to birth itself through the muck of the pond bed, to finally lay itself on the water's surface and bloom.

Music X Habitat X Art 希望挑战观众对现代音乐和视觉艺术的固有观感,透过潜意识的摄影影像重新审视现代音乐和艺术。

意识在自我挣扎中上浮,找到光和意义。就像莲花突破泥潭,最终在水面绽放。

Music X Habitat X Art is a collective founded on the idea of “classical performance as art installation” by Scott Sherman, Yaoyue Huang, and Amelie Jiang. Sherman and Huang are performing classical pianists based in the US, and Amelie Jiang is an exhibiting photographer and curator based in South China. Sherman also works in digital and art film media, and Huang in Photographic Manipulation. MxHxA began its series “The Ascent of Movement Series MUSIC—ART—WORKS” in reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their other long term projects include “Audible Light”, a classical performance & film installation of contemporary classical piano music, animations, digital art, and projections that interact with the performers throughout the program. MxHxA is dedicated to presenting classical and contemporary music in new and interdisciplinary ways to audiences, engaging them visually and aurally in a communal experience of classical music and art. MxHxA seeks to create new ways to experience contemporary art, classical music, and film, where the need for human connection through collective experience brings a sense of community and belonging.

MxHxA has been exhibited at the 5th Annual Special Exhibition of Justart Space, Guangzhou and at The Jupiter Museum of Art in Shenzhen. Their solo exhibition & public art film installation was exhibited in the cultural center of Guangzhou, Huacheng Square, on the many screens that line the pathways, as the music resounded through the public space. Their work was recently exhibited in Paris, France at the Éternité Éphémère (Ephemeral Eternity) Exhibition in coordination with the May Art Foundation and Institut d'études supérieures des arts, Paris. MHA continues its public exhibition of "La boîte à Bijoux, A Night's Wayfaring Stranger", 2'02'' (2021). This second exhibition in Huacheng square is sponsored by FM 99.3 Music Radio, One Minute Art, JPing Media, and HAAM Studio. The new work was made specifically for a vertical screen and mobile viewers.
