Sonic Ecology

Updated: Jul 6

The first sound-based festival addressing environmental awareness and engagement in Hong Kong, this project brings together works of sound artists and composers that are realised both as an advocacy and a work of art. Structured around performances, workshops and conference, “Sonic Ecology” provides a platform to reflect on new ways of the arts responding to pressing issues of climate change, global warming and sustainable development.

Be inspired by composer and conductor Gregor Mayhofer's Insect Concerto, an interesting example on how to raise awareness of environmental protection through music.
