DECADE ENSEMBLE - Kill The Silence: LUFF does Hong Kong

Kill The Silence: LUFF does Hong Kong

May 13 (Fri) 8pm

We swallow the depth of our soul
With Decades of rootlessness

DECADE Ensemble is the first experimental music group in Hong Kong that truly defies musical genres and breaks down boundaries between the academics and the underground. The ensemble was initiated by composer/experimental musician Steve HUI. Each member of the ensemble comes from a very different background, ranging widely from academically trained musicians, self-trained experimentalists, street performers to underground noise practitioners. With the tactical use of unconventional composition, improvisation and instrumentation, the ensemble becomes an alchemical lab of sonic ...transmutation that goes far beyond the original ‘Decade’.

In this debut multi-media performance, the DECADE Ensemble will bring in a wide range of music elements: electronic music, classical music, jazz music, noise music, ethic music, and boil them down into new forms with improvisation. Along this transmutation process, the ensemble will transfigure itself from duo, trio, quintet and at the end, to a full tenet, together with the re-make and original video footage of 100 years of Hong Kong History.

About the original 'Decade':

‘Decade’ is a digital art project that combines music and cinematic clips to present new narratives of Hong Kong over the past 100 years.

Organised by the Performing Arts Department of West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, and first performed in 2013, the project pairs archival moving images of Hong Kong from the last 10 decades – including footage shot during the Japanese occupation and the reunification of Hong Kong – with music by 10 composers, to create new interpretations of the metropolis. Through the interactive online platform, audiences can also rearrange the music and images and create their own versions of ‘Decade’.

After collaborating with The Modern Academy in 2015 for ‘Decade Reconstructed’, Steve Hui, music director of ‘Decade’, revisits the work for the ‘Kill The Silence’ Festival in Hong Kong. For this latest edition, 10 of the city’s best musicians will form a new ‘DECADE Ensemble’ for a public performance that re-interprets the sound and vision of ‘Decade’.

繼2015年聯同現代學院(The Modern Academy)作曲及演奏課程學員合作推出《再建拾.年》(Decade Reconstructed),《拾.年》音樂總監許敖山將於2016年的Kill The Silence 音樂節中再度改編作品,並且邀請十位香港頂尖音樂人組成「拾.年樂團」,公開演出一場,再現《拾.年》聲影。
