Rhythms of the Inter-Island

The School of English at HKU in collaboration with the Inter-Island Festival 2023 is inviting students to participate in a collaborative project, “Rhythms of the Inter-Island,” by contributing their own sound to a collective musical installation and performance that explores the cultural and ecological dimensions of life near the sea through auditory experience, enjoyment, and reflection. Participating students will attend three workshops on listening and sound collecting, composition, and field recording, taught by local professionals and artists. The workshops will involve field trips, hands-on practice and interaction, as well as illustration to engage students’ critical thinking and creative skills. Students will be invited to create their own audio projects, individually or in pairs, in response to the workshops and in conversation with their own disciplines, to be included in the Festival in November 2023.
