Music without boundaries
A unique East-meets-West experience
An original, local cross-media performance
Songs from Within is the latest offering from Hong Kong
cross-cultural musician John Chen, bringing together
JohnChen Ensemble with the best exponents of local fusion
music. By combining Western classical and Chinese
traditional music, jazz, different ethnic rhythms and contemporary sounds, this performance truly lives up to the
boundless spirit of World Music.
A one-time-only performance to enrich the soul, this 90-minute, non-stop 'total music theatre' piece at City Hall Theatre breaks new ground with its specially designed set, four-channel sonic sculpture compositions, video, computer-processed narration and live Chinese calligraphy performances. With a 3-D surround sound system, JohnChen Ensemble's Zen-inspired music will lead the audience into a realm of spiritual calmness.
Special thanks to The Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra for their kind permission to Mr. Tam Po-shek to participate in this performance.
