About the Group

The Hong Kong New Music Ensemble (HKNME) was founded in 2008 to present contemporary music to Hong Kong audiences. It has been widely praised for its innovative programming and interdisciplinary collaborations with artists from different mediums. The HKNME has collaborated with organisations including Zuni Icosahedron, Guangdong Modern Dance Company and Osage Gallery, and often has residencies at universities in Hong Kong and the Mainland China. It has toured to Hobart, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Angkor Wat, Taipei, Guangzhou, Chengdu, Shanghai and Macau. In 2012, the HKNME co-founded SOUTHSITE, a venue for its contemporary music activities. It was also named a one-year-grantee by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council. In 2013 it was awarded a project grant under the Arts Capacity Development Funding Scheme of the Home Affairs Bureau for organising “The Modern Academy”. In 2014, the HKNME is Resident Company at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts.
