Jockey Club Street Music Series: Experimental Series #4

Experimental Series is a new platform for young musicians interested in exploring new possibilities in musical forms, musical language, sound, emotional expression and stylistic gestures. Musicians from different genres – modern classical, experimental, jazz, pop and traditional, will be invited to participate in this musical adventure. The concerts will be a presentation of works-in-progress instead of finished pieces. In each concert there will be a post-performance discussion between the participating musicians and the audience.

DEATH & RENEWAL - Kill The Silence: LUFF does Hong Kong

 
 
Kill The Silence: LUFF does Hong Kong

DEATH & RENEWAL 破滅生死
Extreme Art Ritual 極端藝術祭典


May 14 (Sat) 7pm

Through the night sea journey of Death & Renewal
There arises a towering figure of death
From which archetypal materials awaken
Until we are no longer silent
Until the ritual...
Becomes the message

Headlined by noise artist T. Mikawa (Hijokaidan/Incapacitants) and Pain Jerk from Tokyo, 'Death & Renewal' is a series of cross disciplinary extreme art performance jointly curated by LUFF and Kill The Silence. From the harsh violence of Torturing Nurse, solo voice of Jason Kahn, cracked electronics of Andy Guhl (Voice Crack), literature interludes of Ramaya Tegegne, to the extreme self-hanging meditation of Kubikukuri Takuzou and Rudolf Eb.er, and the ritualistic Chinese action painting of Liang Guojian (with William Lane, arkajolie & Dennis Wong), it becomes a ritual that leads you through the experience of dystopia, death and re-birth.

以東京噪音巨匠美川俊治 (非常階段/Incapacitants) 及Pain Jerk壓陣的"Death & Renewal", 是一個由LUFF及Kill The Silence聯手精心策劃的跨媒介極端藝術滙演。由Torturing Nurse的暴力爆破、Jason Kahn的人聲獨演、 Andy Guhl (Voice Crack) 的壞碎電音、Ramaya Tegegne的文學式間奏,以至Kubikukuri Takuzou和Rudolf Eb.er的自吊死亡冥想,及梁國建的祭典式行為水墨 (William Lane, arkajolie, Dennsi Wong),整個𣾀演將轉化成一個祭典,帶你穿越反烏托邦、死亡及重生。

DECADE ENSEMBLE - Kill The Silence: LUFF does Hong Kong

 
 
DECADE ENSEMBLE
Kill The Silence: LUFF does Hong Kong


May 13 (Fri) 8pm

We swallow the depth of our soul
With Decades of rootlessness

DECADE Ensemble is the first experimental music group in Hong Kong that truly defies musical genres and breaks down boundaries between the academics and the underground. The ensemble was initiated by composer/experimental musician Steve HUI. Each member of the ensemble comes from a very different background, ranging widely from academically trained musicians, self-trained experimentalists, street performers to underground noise practitioners. With the tactical use of unconventional composition, improvisation and instrumentation, the ensemble becomes an alchemical lab of sonic ...transmutation that goes far beyond the original ‘Decade’.

In this debut multi-media performance, the DECADE Ensemble will bring in a wide range of music elements: electronic music, classical music, jazz music, noise music, ethic music, and boil them down into new forms with improvisation. Along this transmutation process, the ensemble will transfigure itself from duo, trio, quintet and at the end, to a full tenet, together with the re-make and original video footage of 100 years of Hong Kong History.

About the original 'Decade':

‘Decade’ is a digital art project that combines music and cinematic clips to present new narratives of Hong Kong over the past 100 years.

Organised by the Performing Arts Department of West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, and first performed in 2013, the project pairs archival moving images of Hong Kong from the last 10 decades – including footage shot during the Japanese occupation and the reunification of Hong Kong – with music by 10 composers, to create new interpretations of the metropolis. Through the interactive online platform, audiences can also rearrange the music and images and create their own versions of ‘Decade’.

After collaborating with The Modern Academy in 2015 for ‘Decade Reconstructed’, Steve Hui, music director of ‘Decade’, revisits the work for the ‘Kill The Silence’ Festival in Hong Kong. For this latest edition, 10 of the city’s best musicians will form a new ‘DECADE Ensemble’ for a public performance that re-interprets the sound and vision of ‘Decade’.

《拾.年》(Decade)由西九文化區表演藝術部策劃,是一個結合現場音樂及影像片段的創意數碼計劃,透過聲音和畫面引領觀眾穿越香港歷史。

《拾.年》搜羅有關香港過去百年發展珍貴片段,分為十個單元,每個單元呈現一個十年,涵蓋日軍佔領及九七回歸等關鍵時刻,並由十位香港音樂人譜上樂曲,利用全新角度描繪城市變化。

透過特設網上程式,觀眾更可根據個人視點自由編排音樂和影像,創造獨一無二的香港百年史。

繼2015年聯同現代學院(The Modern Academy)作曲及演奏課程學員合作推出《再建拾.年》(Decade Reconstructed),《拾.年》音樂總監許敖山將於2016年的Kill The Silence 音樂節中再度改編作品,並且邀請十位香港頂尖音樂人組成「拾.年樂團」,公開演出一場,再現《拾.年》聲影。

有關《拾.年》計劃,詳情見於 www.yourdecade.hk
