Yun Cai’s Residency

Our inaugural artist-in-residence, the pianist and composer Yun Cai. We embarked on an enchanting journey with this musical virtuoso, as she graced the walls of the Bored Peach Club.

During her stay, Yun Cai immersed herself in an ethereal cocoon of inspiration, allowing her senses to intertwine with the vibrant atmosphere of the Bored Peach Club. Within this sacred haven, her musical spirit was set ablaze, giving birth to a symphony of innovation and emotion.

As the residency unfolded, we witnessed the alchemical process of creation, as Yun Cai’s imagination wove intricate melodies at the house and beyond.

Through this remarkable opportunity, the Bored Peach Club was privileged to provide Yun Cai with an environment that nurtured her artistic vision.

We joined in on this awe-inspiring journey as we discovered the transformative power of artistry, guided by the hands of a maestro who dared to dream beyond imagination.
