TOWARDS A MANIFESTO:
SOUNDING ARCHITECTURE
SYMPOSIUM

symposium-02This symposium brings together the HKU Department of Architecture and the Department of Music. The concept behind this project is collaboration and research. To develop a unique project dealing with sound and space, creating a dialogue between two distinct disciplines in architecture and music, which will advance international research into this field and have tangible benefits for non-specialists from the general community.

Sounding Architecture is funded by HKU Interdisciplinary Knowledge Exchange Project, supported by HKU Department of Architecture and Department of Music with KE partners, including the Hong Kong New Music Ensemble and Spring Workshop, to collaborate in a series of workshops and talks culminating in an installation, exhibition, and performance in 2017. This artistic and research collaboration will reach both established and new audiences for music and art in Hong Kong.
