House Music Series - Bou Kwan Ying x Olivier Cong

Time: 18:00 - 19:00 
Price: Free Admission 

It is, again, the first month of the year.

Have you ever wondered, what is the sound of new spring?
To us, new spring may sound like firecrackers, lion-dancing and festive celebrations.
To the West, new spring may sound like flower blossoms, breezy winds and the ever beautiful nature.
At this juncture, when it is the start of the new year in the Gregorian Calendar but also the countdowns before the arrival of the Chinese New Year, House Music Series invites you to the open space in front of the Hong Kong Arts Centre and embrace the festive spirits. There will be the traditional Chinese instrument Guzheng as well as modern music to express our joint anticipation for the upcoming future and to compose our own sounds of new spring.
