Fiona Lee
Sound Artist

Born in Hong Kong, Fiona Lee’s works of art have their origins in the intersection between installation and performance. Listening creates an important connection between Fiona and the world; this is when she feels the movement of every single moment. She believes that her art represents the progress she is making in exploring and accepting her own and others’ possibilities. Recent research on naturopathic therapy and healing arts inspires her to create and heal by listening to the inner voices of one’s body and mind.

Fiona’s installations have been featured at a number of arts festivals, including ART CAMP TANGO (Japan, 2017), ifva Carnival (Hong Kong, 2016), Around Sound Art Festival (Japan, 2014), and Transi(en)t Manila Project Glocal (Philippines, 2014). She was invited to perform at many festivals and gigs, such as Intersection in MidAir (Hong Kong, 2019), Asian Meeting Festival (Japan, 2016), The Jockey Club Street Music Series: Experimental Music (Hong Kong, 2016), and Kill the Silence Festival (Hong Kong, 2013).

Alex Yiu (aka Alexmalism)
Experimental Music Artist

A Hong Kong-based music producer, sound artist and DJ, Alexmalism draws his inspirations from minimalism, industrialism, sound art, trance, pop and even classical music, while actively exploring the boundaries between the different styles and genres. His approach is minimalist but ends in maximal results. In his debut album TKO, he moves through trance, house, and techno, employing pointillistic synth patterns and industrial rhythms. One gets the sense that beneath Alex’s disaffection towards his hometown there lies a sliver of reverence.

Alexmalism has performed and deejayed at numerous venues and platforms such as XXX, OIL Club, ALL Club, Sónar Hong Kong 2019, CTM Festival 2020, Times Museum, Tai Kwun Contemporary, NTS Radio, Hong Kong Community Radio and Shanghai Community Radio. As a sound artist, he has exhibited at Para Site, A+ Contemporary, Burning Man by UNPOP, and many other venues.
