Zen concert to be staged at Shaolin Temple

Sounds cool:

Tan Dun, the Chinese musician who won an Oscar for his score in 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon,' will stage a concert on Zen at the foot of Shaolin Temple, in central China's Henan Province.

Tan Dun told a press conference held in Henan Tuesday that the concert will be set at the foot of Shaolin Temple, which is right in the heart of the Songshan Mountain . . . . The concert will use instruments made of water, light, wind and stones.

Stones of billions of years' history on Songshan Mountain will be used as percussion instruments, and spring water will be processed as a gong and string instruments with the help of a hi-tech device, Tan said.
