E(ar)-Storm

Challenge your mindset, push your ears to the creative edge

Imagine you are at the Ladies’ Market in Mongkok and your eyes are closed. How long could you stay amid the cacophony surrounding you?

While our eyes are usually more accepting of jumbled sights or disarray, our ears tend to be less willing to compromise, immediately demanding that we try to shut out what lies beyond our individual boundaries of “pleasant”.

Similarly, despite people being born with the ability to appreciate music, through its resonance with our emotions, we often find it difficult to embrace works hard to listen to due to pitch, volume, or type of sound.

So what is the key to great sonic art?

In this intriguing five-part programme, E(ar)-Storm takes you down a road less travelled in Hong Kong into the world of experimental music. Here, five key figures from the boundary-stretching scene introduce their notable achievements and the ideas behind them.

Time to tune in to bold new acoustic experiences beyond your traditional comfort zone!
