Hong Kong Solos by Ari Benjamin Meyers, presented by Spring Workshop Hong Kong
Performance at Things that can happen
16 Mar- 1 Apr 2017
Things that can happen
1/F, 98 Apliu Street, Sham Shui Po, Kowloon, Hong Kong
A part of An exposition, not an exhibition, Hong Kong Solos is an artwork by Ari Benjamin Meyers that will take place at six non-profit art organizations—Asia Art Archive, Hong Kong Arts Centre, M+, Para Site, soundpocket and Things that can happen. Meyers invited six local Hong Kong composers to create new works for staff members at these organizations across the city. In order to experience these intimate pieces devised for 1 performer and 1-4 audience members, potential listeners are invited to book visits to these institutions. The work centers around bringing together usually disparate parties: a composer and an art professional, a performer and a visitor, and the members of the art and music worlds of Hong Kong.
PRINZ TR – 15
for Voice and Tape
Departing from the study of speech as music and rhythm, Lam Lai’s piece is scored for Chantal’s voice and portable tape recorder in a work that explores the machine’s biography and how music can capture shifts in space and time.
