Liting Ji | Heal the Wounded Ocean | Graduating Student Recital

Friday, May 3, 2024   |   3:00 pm 4:00 pm

Free – $20.00
Longy’s performances are free and open to the public, but please register in advance.

All Longy students present full recitals as part of their education and ongoing evolution as artists. They are charged with thinking critically about what stories they tell, whose voices to amplify, and who’s in the room for their event while also considering how to use performance spaces in innovative ways and how to truly engage audiences and create interactive music experiences.

Liting Ji is a student of Jayne West.

The symbols on my poster are two symbols of protection: Seman, a five-pointed star, and Dōman, a rectangle with a lattice pattern, with which Japanese ama divers (traditional free-diving women without oxygen equipment who catch abalones and collect pearls) adorn their attire with These two symbols are named after Abe no Seimei and Ashiya Dōman, the most renowned two onmyojis in Heian period in Japan.

Ama divers wear them for protection from the dangers that are ever present in the ocean where they work—bone-chilling cold, powerful currents, and even the occasional shark. In the past, the talismans were believed to protect the ama from the monster that was thought to inhabit the ocean.

This recital is the testament of fulfillment of the Master of Music degree in Performance.
