Noise to Signal 0.53: Psychosonic Underground


Noise to Signal 0.53: Psychosonic Underground
TORSION | Daniel Maszkowicz | Emma Souharce | Dennis Wong/Gary Myles Duo
聲音是通往無意識的康莊大道⋯

精心巧琢的電子噪聲,以歐陸式及廣東派的姿勢,滲透入意識的層層堆疊,打開一個空間,那裡自我意識,轉化游移向無意識世界⋯

直至我們達至一種集體的夢境狀態,直至,我們在一個安全的距離,遙遙觀照我們自身的黑暗面⋯

請注意!這是一個兩小時沒有中場休息的演化旅程。

Sound as the royal road to the Unconscious…

Infiltrating multiple layers of the conscious mind, finely crafted electronic sound & noise, in the European and Cantonian tradition, open up the realm where the Ego transits into the Unconscious…

Reaching a collective dream state, at which the Shadow can be observed safely in a distance…

Please note that this will be a 2 hours performative journey without intermission.

Noise to Signal 0.52: The Silence Session


Noise to Signal 0.52: The Silence Session
Dickson Dee | Nelson Hiu | Dennis Wong | Sherman | Vinc Kwok


五位藝術家以聲音去探索寂靜。

由五重奏開始,慢慢地將層次遞減,變換成不同的四重奏、三重奏及二重奏,直至最後只剩下寂靜。把寂靜,一層層的打開...

李勁松是香港實驗音樂的擧足輕重人物,一直活躍於不同的聲音藝術項目及舞蹈場境;邱立信是香港即興演奏的重要先驅,音樂個性不拘一格,完全無視各旣定俗成的音樂體裁;Sherman亦是城中最天馬行空,個性最鮮明獨特的結他手之一;Vinc Kwok乃電子樂團tl;dl的核心成員,擅長模組電子合成器,但今次則另闢蹊徑,用上電子原音的手法;黃仲輝亦名Sin:Ned,專研各種無法被定義的演奏技法。

如何畫黑留白,如何用「有」來觀視「無」,以動製靜...

This is a special session to explore silence with sound.

An improvising group of five remarkable Hong Kong artists, Dickson Dee, Nelson Hiu, Dennis Wong, Sherman & Vinc Kwok, will start as a full quartet and slowly evolve into various forms and shapes until there is nothing left but silence…

Please note that this will be a non-stop performance without intermission.

我們亦邀請了三位香港電音藝術家,Timmy LokZebra Kills HorseSan Chan為放映會作開場演出。

讓我們一同追溯電子音樂的歴史,繼而承傳及推進。

Subliminal Lounge is an audio & visual series initiated by Re-Records & SECOND to interactively explore and recreate the connection between moving images and sound. 

In this 4th instalment, as a collaboration with press : release, we will be screening Circle of Light, a half-hour-long 1972 film with abstract electronic soundtrack by Delia Derbyshire, who is an unsung female pioneer of early electronic music.

Before the film screening, opening live sets will be presented by Hong Kong electronic musicians Timmy Lok, Zebra Kills Horse and San Chan.

Kill Jazz 09: Dark Radish | Dennis Wong | Sherman


Kill Jazz 09: Dark Radish | Dennis Wong | Sherman

來自法國的三人組Dark Radish,彷佛是後搖滾的根源性重新塑造。當後搖滾已發展成一門被完全規範化及教科書式定義的彊化音樂體裁,Dark Radish由根源重新切入,把後搖滾帶回未被蓋棺定論的盤古初開。近乎Krautrock的推進力,追逼箸混合自由爵士樂及即興新音樂的翻動推演,從核心把搖滾樂解放到體裁與系統以外的無人邊界。

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Trance inducing and jazz infected freeform post-rock!

Dark Radish is a French free-rock outfit born from the meeting of three figures of new improvised music, including members of bands Jean-Louis, Sidony Box and Bribes 4. The trio has released a first Ep, a disrupted power trio invoking both free music, post-rock as well as trance music. Dark Radish was born from a creative residency at Pannonica in Nantes, and the project has played in Pannonica (Nantes), Mains d'Oeuvres (Paris, Maad 93 festival), Periscope (Lyon, Résonances festival in partnership with Jazz à Vienna) and more.
