Noises That No One Else Hears

Research output: Chapter in book/report/conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter provides a personal history and perspective of sound practices in Hong Kong with a focus on years 2004–2009. The title of the text not only highlights the rather small-scale audience of experimental sound practices but also addresses their possible lack of understanding from common institutions and audiences located outside of the unstable and fragile ecology of sound practices of the time. As a result, a handful of listeners and makers have organised and participated in events as a way to engage, experiment and redefine their relationship with sound. In that sense, the author states that the described events were the works of amateurs who developed a sense of care and attention towards sound through a self-reflective experimental approach.
