About Sizhukong
“Sizhukong” means “Silk, Bamboo, Open” and originally refers to a pressure point near the temples.  A few light touches will relieve headaches, dizziness, and all sorts of aches.  To get from the silk and bamboo of our musical instruments to the openness of our music, imagine a lone knight who swoops to the rescue from high in the mountain passes.  Imagine listening to an impenetrable language that calls up visions before your eyes.
 
Sizhukong is a band, or a vision.  We chose this name to bring together as one the material of our instruments and the vast, all-encompassing power of the empty.  May our music touch you and bring you healing!
