Youxin Yang's Musical Art Delivers An Emotional Message Using Objective Compassion

Bookmark and Share

Our hearts are bombarded almost daily with news of violent crimes. It's difficult to find inspiration in the midst of tragedy, but for one Boston artist, that's exactly where her muse resides. Youxin Yang is a multi-talented Chinese-American artist living and working in the Boston area. Recently, Youxin, with the help of many talented Boston-based academic musicians, has completed a musical video project titled "Peace - Melody Under Brushes, Part 1: Baby get rid of that dark obsession please!" The project engages the topic of violence, specifically such violence perpetrated by young people - acts of terrorism and school violence among them.

The vocals are those of Berklee College of Music faculty. In the role of the friend's voice is Associate Professor, Didi Stewart. The voice of the mother is provided by Associate Professor, Jeannie Gagne and the vocals for the father are those of Professor, Armsted Christian. Cellist, Sam Ou, is a Faculty Member and Assistant String Chairperson at New England Conservatory. The traditional Chinese instruments were performed by Erhuist, Hongwei Gao, Pipaist, Yanrong Lu, and Dizi player, Jianhua Duan. The Percussionist for the project was E.C. The painter and songwriter is Youxin Yang. Although completed only a few weeks ago, the project has already won notoriety by receiving two nominations from the 2014 American Songwriting Awards.

Youxin's deepest thanks go out to the people who made this project a reality. She writes, "It is our Bostonian top musicians who dedicated their talent and time for this controversial and non-commercial project. They sing this song using their hearts and their consciousnesses. We have one goal, the goal is so simple: we want to enjoy our lives in a peaceful environment, on a peaceful planet."

The images of paintings that accompany the music for this project showcase Youxin Yang's recent, award-winning Peace series of paintings, which have won multiple accolades. "Peace-I", "Peace-II", "Peace-IV", "Peace-Vi- Boston Marathon", among others, have won the 2013 American Art Award's Stoney Award (a prize for most overall wins by one artist) with a dozen awards placed within 52 categories. "Peace-I" also won Second place in Water Media at the 2013 National Juried Art Show at the Highland Museum & Discovery Center in Ashland, Kentucky. "Peace-III" was a juried selection at The Alexandria Museum of Art in Alexandria, Louisiana for their 26th Annual September Competition Exhibition.

Youxin Yang has several upcoming exhibitions in the United States. You can see her art this September at The Arts Club of Washington, in Washington D.C.; in October at the Watertown Free Public Library in Watertown, Massachusetts for a month-long solo show; and next year in Massachusetts at Lowell's Whistler House Museum of Art for an show titled "Pursuing Justice through Art" in April-May 2015. Her work can also be accessed from www.zeitgeistgallery.net.
