ABOUT Sin:Ned (Wong Chung-fai)
Sin:Ned (Wong Chung-fai), an idiosyncratic improviser, sonic artist and free-lance writer from Hong Kong. Co-founder of the experimental imprint Re-Records and member of the electro-acoustic duo No One Pulse.Being a veteran writer of the legendary Hong Kong alternative music magazine MCB (Music Colony B-Weekly), while not writing as a pseudo-music critic elaborating his esoteric worldview, in the same idiosyncratic fashion, he spends much of his time hacking and sculpting sonic materials with his laptop and various non-standard electronic gears. With his on-going experimentation encompassing improvisation, sound art, experimental music, noise art, electronic music and field recordings, he has been re-visioning a sound-making process that is dictated solely and directly by intuition.He had taken part and performed in various festivals and exhibitions such as HK Sound and Vision Festival (2003), Get It Louder (2007), Hong Kong & Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture (2007, 2009), Architecture is Art Festival (2009), Notch Festival 2009 Guangzhou Station (2009).
