Our city comprises of people's living experience, stories and emotions, with sound, which has ever existed, which still exists or which is newly-generated. These mean the memories, emotion and shape of our city. People living in the hustling and bustling city may become too used to the surroundings because of their daily routine, and turn themselves a deaf ear to sound and turn themselves a blind eye to the cityscape.

"sound in the city" is an exhibition series to see our city by bringing invisible sound and visible subject matters together with a mix of a variety of media. Through "sound", a highly transmittable and fusible medium integrated in many creative disciplinary, such as virtuality, augmented reality in the cityscape, the imagery and the soundscape of the city will be formed. Integrating the means of science and aesthetics, audiences are to be reminded their relationship with the environment, be open for any imaginations about their life stories. Different voices come and go, bringing us many possibilities and stories beyond vision.

Part 1:Shuffle Reality
Observing our familiar urban landscape at a perspective falling between the virtuality and reality, the artist will present how he constructs the sound architecture by layering the visible and the invisible sceneries and transforms its boundary with the technology of transcoding, to invite audiences to see the invisible that always exists but not be seen.

Animamix Biennale 2018
Soundtracks of animation tell stories with music notes and onomatopoeia. Dramatic and imaginary plotlines, on the other hand, are expressed with emotions and narratives like what ballad music does. In the 3rd edition of the Biennale, Hong Kong exhibition will invite audiences to experience the worlds of virtuality and reality — interwoven by time, space and people — through sound art. Using sound art as a communicative medium, we hope to provoke people's hearing sensory to register any tedious but meaningful ideas, and recall any forgotten moments or deeply hidden inner thoughts, to induce relationship and interactions amongst time, place and people.

Based on the navigation of the mobile app, audiences will walk through a journey to find the 13 “IF”s with an encounter of cross-media elements such as sound, text, images, installations and urban landscapes, to experience correspondences between sight and sound, and to feel a different “animation”.

Participating artist: Chow Yiu-fai is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Humanities and Creative Writing of Hong Kong Baptist University. He is an award-winning writer. Lately, he has been increasingly involved in prose writing, multi-media and visual art projects.

Justin Wong is a comic writer and media artist. In 2007, he started his political comic column Gei Gei Gaak Gaak in Ming Pao Daily. He is now an Assistant Professor in the Academy of Visual Arts in Hong Kong Baptist University.

Part 3:Freedom from Within
The artist will induce some imaginations about time and the city by his unique piece of work. Imaginaries will be invented and intervened in different spaces and be re-interpreted by different paths. Through the search of sensations about “time” and “city”, one’s inner self will be pursued to set free.

Participating artist: Tam Wai-ping is an Associate Professor in the Department of Fine Arts of The Chinese University of Hong Kong. His recent interest looks at the relationships between "Text", "Object" and "Image", it re-evaluates how art can serve as a cognitive experience.
