A Double Listen Arena
Toolbox Percussion is delighted to present a sound-based exhibition “A Double Listen Arena”. The exhibition and its nominative performances will open to the public on 12 August 2022 at ArtisTree, running through to 21 August 2022. “A Double Listen Arena”, serving as a community hub, features many of the past and new creative attempts of Toolbox Percussion. The exhibition is supported by Hong Kong Arts Development Council and Tom Lee Music.
Directed by Louis Siu, the exhibition transforms musical and creative experiences into interactive percussive sound and installation, multi-channel soundscape composition, and a variety of programs to reimagine contemporary music and creativity. The interactive exhibition is Toolbox Percussion’s undertaking into the practices of community arts, highlighted by Set Designer Kay Chan’s new playful installations where different play sculptures resemble public play space, allowing the audience to participate to compose a new listening experience.
Pairing with a Newly commissioned Soundscape by composer Fung Lam, experimenting with a fresh way to recreate a surrounding aural experience. The soundscape will have elements interconnecting with the site’s installations to allow audience to take part of the creative process.While a series of live spatial performances will also feature Fung Lam's room-filling compositional sequences. Other works will include contemporary composers, John Cage, Jason Treuting, Matt McBane, and Philip Glass, performed by Toolbox Percussion musicians.
Other programmes include free creative workshops, satellite events of Toolbox International Creative Academy (TICA); Screening Performance of Percussion Duo Moitié by Tianjin Juillard School, and Panel Discussion with Board Member of Hong Kong Palace Museum Limited Helen So and veteran cultural heritage conservation professional Winnie Yeung and Toolbox Performing Platform’s Vertex Percussion Duo Lunch Time Concert.
