about Artists:

Laurent Valdès:
Video-artist and performer from Geneva, Switzerland, Laurent Valdès first studied cinema. Due to people met on his way and artistic experimentations, he finally never worked in the film industry. After his bachelor, he got naturally involved in the art performance scene, designing video installation for stage performances (theater or dance), as well as stage design and light design. It made his own artistic work evolve in between the field of video art and performing art. He collaborated also with musicians from contemporary music to experimental music and also electronic music. Since 1998, year of it’s first visit to Hong Kong, he came back several times to film and photograph different aspects of the city. This made him a particular witness of the city transformation.

Wong Chung-fai 黄仲辉:
Wong Chung-fai aka Sin:Ned, an experimentalist musician and free-lance writer from Hong Kong. He’s also co-founder of the experimental sound blog, member of the electro-acoustic duo No One Pulse, and a veteran writer of the legendary Hong Kong alternative music magazine MCB (Music Colony Bi-Weekly). His writings have influenced a wide spectrum of experimental musicians and listeners in Hong Kong and China. He spends much of his time sculpting sonic materials with his laptop and various non-standard electronic gears. With his embracement of improvisation, noise, errors, chaos and randomness, he re-envisions an unorthodox sound-making process driven by intuition, bodily expression and direct experience.

He has provided creative work for concerts, sound installations, workshops, audio-visual and theatrical performances. He has performed in various events in HK and mainland China, such as Hong Kong & Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture (2007, 2009) and Notch Festival 2009 Guangzhou Station (2009). He has collaborated and performed with local and international artists.
