About the artists

Hong Kong New Music Ensemble
The Hong Kong New Music Ensemble (HKNME) was founded in 2008 with an aim to present high quality performances of contemporary music to Hong Kong audiences. Since its inception, the group has been widely praised for its innovative programming and interdisciplinary collaborations with artists from different mediums. The HKNME has collaborated with such organizations as Zuni Icosahedron, Guangdong Modern Dance Company, Osage Gallery, soundpocket, Contemporary Musiking, Hong Kong Composers’ Guild and the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Architecture Biennale. The group has also worked with such composers as Jo Kondo, Samson Young, Chan Hing-yan, Benedict Mason, Chinary Ung, Shiu Ka-wai and a talented body of younger Hong Kong composers.

The group’s versatile repertoire includes works by local and overseas composers, as well as contemporary pieces that are seldom heard in Hong Kong. In 2012, the HKNME co-founded SOUTHSITE, an exciting new venue for its contemporary music activities.
