"Atlas" is a set of compositions created for various non-concert hall locations in the city, with the music of Charles Kwong specifically written for these sites and notated on maps drawn by visual artist Frank Tang. The unique character of each space becomes the integral part in the creation of each composition. Six performances will take place at six different non-concert hall sites in Hong Kong.

"Our Audible City"
"Our Audible City" takes music out of the concert halls, and creates new musical experience that directly interferes and transforms the soundscape of the city.
