Fruitpunch / iii / KZ
Chinese Garden, Kowloon Park
In the midst of Urban Beats
Located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon Park is constantly in the flux of a variety of urban beats. Yet, different paces and rhythms are lived out even if the city has its own basic tempo. Sound in the Park 3: “In the midst of Urban Beats” proudly presents the post-punk beat of Fruitpunch, the eclectic beat of iii and the hip-hop beat of KZ (featuring Geniuz F aka Future & Poker aka HO). An afternoon of different urban beats, 3 acts of different attitudes towards life.

iii is a sample-based laptop group who works on the idea of genres bending. With no fixed members and always in flux, members of iii not only sample from their source materials, but also sample one another and re-sample themselves on stage.iii loves canto-pop and all kinds of outdated cheesy tune and popular icon. But depending on the occasion, one might also spot them playing something else.

Sound in the Park ( Curated by: Yuen Chi-chung)
Outdoor concerts in six different themes take place in six locations in four parks.
“Sound in The Park” is an afternoon concert series aiming to mix music into the park environment. The shows need no stage set, no giant loudspeakers. It is music that is going to be absorbed into the gentle milieu and landscape of the park, furnishing it with more notes of green. Under the winter sun and amidst the comforting environment of the park, music-lovers will have a good chance to enjoy live music in a free and open atmosphere.
A park is a very important outdoor space for people to relax. Given the ever- growing number of people and shopping malls here in Hong Kong, a park is getting even more vital as the public space and resource that city dwellers can share among themselves.
Turning this public space into a music platform and performance venue, Sound in The Park will tour around Hong Kong Park, Kowloon Park, Sha Tin Park and Tuen Mun Park. The piazzas, gardens, amphitheatre and grassland are all places in which great music will be delivered. And the concerts will be tailor-made with themes to fit different park environment.
Great music and the close encounter between music and its audience culminate in a picture that is both eye- and ear-soothing; an enjoyable afternoon filled with the warmth of the sun and the wonders of music. (Text:Yuen Chi-chung)

If you think u r wrong, u r almost right!! ─ Unorthodox Remaking of Sound
led by Sin:Ned (Wong Chung-fai)
Creativity is of ultimate importance to our existence. Even the commercial world is investing more and more on training their employees to think “out of the box”. However, we are still facing a creativity crisis — in our everyday life and in our work. What is hindering our ability to think out of the box?
Through examining the history and practice of unorthodox sound making, you will see that the lack of creativity is closely related to the one-sided development of our rational culture, and our learned mentality of seeing errors, chaos, randomness and disorder as undesirable results. With hands-on experiment on unorthodox sound making, you will develop an appreciative eye for the beauty of errors and randomness, which in turn, will free us from our tunnel vision of pure rationality, and enable us to see beyond the box.
