Hong Kong Monograph (2021-22)
Hong Kong Monograph was launched in 2021 to showcase some of the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble’s most significant commissions and premieres of the past several years. The project is a platform to internationally showcase creative talents from the region, and supported by an Extra-Activities Grant by the Hong Kong Arts Development Council.
ORIGINAL (LIVE) CONCERT
The live concert of "Hong Kong Monograph" was cancelled twice at short notice - on 9 October 2021 due to Typhoon Lionrock, and on 12 February 2022 because of venue closures related to anti-pandemic measures. As a result of these ongoing concerns, this project was moved to online format utilising the HKNME's Bandcamp and YouTube channel. Several larger-scale works in the original concert program were replaced with smaller-scale chamber works.
Accompanying several of these formal releases - either in purely audio or Score Reader form - are conversations with the creators and performers. Detailed program notes (if available) are in the links provided or in the video descriptions.
