Product Description

《Around 聽在》is the first book published by soundpocket, a registered charity that promotes sound art and its research and education in Hong Kong. The title of this book is derived from Around sound art festival 2009 – a festival of listening and the first of its kind in Hong Kong. Artists, curators, critics and musicians contribute 16 essays on listening in less noticed places in Hong Kong like Motat on Lamma Island, empty public housing estates in Wong Chuk Hang, and listening to frogs and rivers, listening to distance. The book includes a CD with 12 recordings of site-specific works presented in the festival.
