2018: "Overtone Singing" Interdisciplinary Collaborative Project (HKAPA, Hong Kong)
Overtone singing is a traditional singing technique with a very strong artistic character. Yet, in today's ever-changing cultural environment, its artistic potential remains largely unexplored. The project aimed to research visionary ways to map the traditional singing technique with western contemporary music aesthetics, hoping to give the audience a striking experience while appreciating the art form.
2013: Hong Kong Speech Choir Project (Tsuen Wan Town Hall, Hong Kong)
Invited by Prof. Richard Tsang. Composed a choral piece to explore the artistic potential of only using the natural tones in Cantonese as "melody". No musical pitch is notated.
