Toolbox Percussion is delighted to present a sound-based exhibition “A Double Listen”. The exhibition and its eponymous performances will open to the public on 19 June 2021 at 17/F, H Queen's, running through to 8 July 2021. “A Double Listen”, serving as a dossier, features many of the past and new aesthetic attempts of Toolbox Percussion. The exhibition is title sponsored by H Queen’s and HART.
The mechanisms of creating percussive sound are so versatile that musicians or composers are far from fully exploring them. This exhibition encapsulates our work in the form of multimedia conflation of percussive sound and visualised installation, multi-channel audio work, and newly commissioned sound sequences.
The exhibition is Toolbox Percussion’s venture into interdisciplinary practices, featuring sound artist and composer Alain Chiu’s new sound art installation where different objects and sounds are fragmentedly laid out in a finite space, leading audience to construct a sound afterimage, and unique listening experience.
Installation work Round by composer Fung Lam delves into the playfulness of percussive arts. The mahjong playing piece depicts different ways of playing mahjong as the sole instrument of the piece, injecting traits of quotidian pastime into percussion. While a series of spatial performances (as well as site-specific auditory experience) will feature Fung Lam's room-filling compositional sequences.
Positioned as music happenings in a gallery space, these performances will also feature works by Steve Reich, John Cage, and Samson Young.
