|18 Scenes in a Cage|| |
A Performative Experience of Media, Art and Architecture
Awakening all the memory cells of vA!, 18 Scenes in a Cage recalls the notes and sounds of more than 100 years that are stored in and around Cassels Block. It then echoes contemporary existence by staging scenes that represent the 18 Hong Kong districts and reflect the rapid changes in Hong Kong people's lives. Leading through various locations inside and outside the historic building, which serves as a cage accommodating all walks of life, a path of acoustic encounters and visual excitement revives and mirrors extraordinary memories and connects them to the emotions of the city. GayBird will lead musicians and performers in different places on site to add a distinctive tone to his composition. Visitors will be immersed in a flow of experience combining all forms of art as they move through Cassel Block to the musical accompaniment, as the stories of different Hong Kong people from throughout the years come together in unison.
GayBird has accumulated an extensive background in cross-media creative productions. His music breaks out of the traditional framework, and he combines sound, visuals, mechanical interactivity, instrumental production and installation art to offer a comprehensive, performative and dynamic music experience. He won the bronze award for new media experiment/performance at the Hong Kong Design Awards 2011 and was named one of the Ten Outstanding Designers at the Hong Kong Art and Design Festival in 2012 and Best Electronic Music Artist at the Chinese Music Media Awards in 2012 for his new media music performances Digital Hug (2011) and CouCou on Mars (2013), which he has taken on tour to several international arts festivals. One Zero (2016), which he performed at the New Vision Arts Festival, further explored the boundaries between theatre, exhibition and live performance, while his sound installations have been displayed at the Ars Electronica Festival, OzAsia Festival and Athens Digital Arts Festival, among others.
