Time Is On Our Side – Contemporary Musiking Hong Kong x soundpocket Joint Benefit 2021
現在音樂 x 聲音掏腰包慈善籌款 2021:俾多幾年我

>>> Highlights of Joint Benefit 聯合籌款活動花絮 <<<

There is no better time for micro-listening as gigantism exercises its obliterating might. There is no better time for connecting as processes of atomization intensify.
There is no better time for supporting artists who sound out that which is alive despite deafening hyperbole that drowns out lifelines.

Time is on our side, for as long as it takes.

We have no plan to stop. We have no plan to diverge from our chosen path.
We promise not the spectacular, but commitment, tenacity, and the essential spirit of living an experimental life.
We are here to share the weight, the troubles, as much as the beauty that listening to everything nestles us into.
We are here to dig into that which matters for artists who keep listening, even when time seems to matter no more.

再沒有更好的時機,去傾聽微細聲音;因為巨浪湧至正在摧毀一切。
再沒有更好的時機,去連結四方;因為使人更加孤立的日常越迫越近。
再沒有更好的時機,去支持藝術家;儘管震耳欲聾的虛妄正淹沒環環緊扣的生命,他們依然為存在的發聲。

時間一直站在我們身邊。

我們沒有停下來的打算。我們沒有要別離的計劃。
我們堅守的不是璀璨的一剎,而是在日常生活中持續實驗、堅守和保持韌力。
我們在這是為了分享重擔、煩惱,以及聆聽一切讓我們沉浸其中的美麗。
我們在這是為了探尋使藝術家一再聆聽、為之重要的事物——即使時間彷彿不再重要。

“Contemporary Musiking Hong Kong is devoted to the promotion, presentation, and advocacy for cross-disciplinary practices in sound,” a mission we are still very much committed to ever since CMHK was founded.

“Sonic Anchor” and “Sonic Transmission” are two of our longest running programs to encourage artists to venture out of their comfort zones, to provide a platform for experiments in sound and performance, and to bring exchange opportunities to local artists. Unwillingly, due to the loss of grant money for these programs, as well as for our biggest festival, Sound Forms, we must work with a minimal budget and even draw on savings accumulated over the past years.

To keep these programs running we are asking for your help to raise a total of HK$100,000 to cover the six month period starting from January 2022, which will include two Sonic Anchor evenings and one artist exchange program. Your support will go directly to the artists and for the production of these projects.

「現在音樂致力於推廣、展示和倡導跨界別的聲音實踐」,這是我們成立以來一直堅守的宗旨。

《聲音下寨》和《聲音傳輸》是我們多年策劃的兩個年度項目,旨在鼓勵藝術家走出舒適圈,為聲音實驗演出提供平台,以及為本地藝術家提供交流機會。不幸地,由於得不到香港藝術發展局的資助,我們只能以極少預算來籌辦這些年度項目,當中包括我們最大型的聲音藝術節 《聲形》,甚至已需動用我們過去幾年累積下來的積蓄。

是次籌款我們希望籌得總計 100,000 港元的資金,令以上計劃在 2022 年 1 月起的六個月內持續運行,其中包括兩場《聲音下寨》之夜,以及一項藝術家交流計劃。您的支持將直接支援藝術家和這些項目的製作。

For 10 consecutive years, our “Artist Support Programme” has witnessed the growth of nineteen artists. The principles of this programme are based on their artistic and personal development. The one-month overseas residency component is essential to these artists’ entitlement to mobility.

This year, for the first time, we failed to secure an ADC grant for this programme. This means resources for artists have been directly and unexpectedly taken away. We are talking about a loss of HK$120,000.

We need your support to keep this going.

Please support us to support artists.

過去 10 年,我們的「藝術家支援計劃」見證了 19 位藝術家的成長。計劃以他們的藝術和個人發展為起點;當中為期一個月的海外駐留計劃對藝術家的流動性尤其重要。

今年是我們首次未能獲得香港藝術發展局對於「藝術家支援計劃」的資助,藝術家的資源將被突然地全數抽走。我們所說的是 120,000 港元

我們需要您的支持才能繼續下去。

請支持我們支持藝術家。
