John Cage is one of the most influential figures in contemporary art history. Soundtracking#John Cage 4’33” takes the chance to celebrate the centennial of his birth by re-thinking his most famous and controversial composition 4’33” in the contemporary culture of collaboration in the digital era.

Eleven talents whose expertise lies in different fields are invited. Each of them re-invents a new 4’33” through collaborating with the others with different knowledge, skills or experiences on a Media Wiki platform (http://soundtrackingjohncage433.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=Main_Page), where sharing and collaboration are emphasized. With the actual engagement of the artists and the general public, new versions 4’33” are generated, and would be exhibited and /or performed together as part of the Festival. Nerve, Dennis Wong and Paul Yip will be collaborated for a sound performance.
