If you think u r wrong, u r almost right!!
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.
