Also know as Wong Chung-fai, an idiosyncratic improviser, sonic junkie, live-visualist, micro-curator 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), his writings had influenced a wide spectrum of experimental musicians and listeners. 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 embracing improvisation, noise, errors, chaos and randomness, he has been re-visioning an unorthodox sound-making process expressed in extreme dichotomies, and driven by intuition and direct experience.
He had offered performance and creative work for concert, sound installation, workshop, audio-visual and theatrical performance. He had taken part and performed in events 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 Guangzhou Station (2009), MILK+ (2010), and Whisper Music Festival (2010).
