Highlight Event
Music Lab Festival 2016 - A Chatroom with Musicians: What Makes you a Musician?
Common sense for musicians dreaming the big stage:

Classical - Get a music degree, practice, enter competitions, win or lose, get lucky, get famous, perform.
Pop - Get pretty, practice, record, upload, get likes, get exposed, get lucky, get famous, get signed, perform.

Thankfully, these common notions have finally been challenged by innovative means. There are local music practitioners who form their own ensembles, organise their own concert series, build their original seasonal programme. There are independent artists who go busking all around the city, building their followers on digital platforms. There are crowdfunders who support meaningful small projects that would otherwise fail without the early-received funds.

In this dynamic environment nowadays, how do musicians perceive themselves, "follow their passion" and develop their work? Can we learn from their stories and re-value the work of an artist?

This chatroom will be a polyphonic chatroom with musicians at different stages. Hear how they think, what they say, the music they play.

Date: 25-2-2016 (Thur)
Time: 7:00 - 8:30 pm
Venue: K223, Knowles Building, University of Hong Kong

Sharing guests
Kung Chi Shing, Wong Jing, CY Leo@ Veloz Harmonica Quartet, Joseph Ho@ Set Tone Men, KaJeng Wong
