Summary 內容: 龔志成,人稱「阿龔」,是一位香港作曲家、演奏家及音樂行動家。他於1987年與英國藝術家彼得小話(Peter Suart)成立「盒子」樂隊(The Box),多年來的作品遊走於創意和實驗之間。自2009年起,阿龔更每月組織免費街頭音樂會系列「開放音樂」,突破音樂會的限制和框框,發掘新晉及拓展新觀眾,將戶外音樂會帶入社區,連結鄰里。現為西九文化區管理局藝術策劃(音樂)的阿龔,近年積極開拓本地及國際間的音樂交流和合作,提供機會給具潛質的冒起之秀。

三十年來,阿龔的身份雖變,但推動音樂發展的心不變。龔志成將與你分享由藝術家到策劃人的音樂人生。

Born and raised in Hong Kong, Kung Chi Shing is a composer, performer, and music activist.

As an artist, Kung is known for his work in the music group The Box, which he founded with Peter Suart in 1987. His music focuses on experimentation with different formats, including classical, pop, improvisational music, and theatre art.

As a curator, since 2009, Kung started to organise free public concerts named Street Music Series to discover and nurture music talents and to bring music to new audiences outside of established formats. Apart from free public concerts, he also started to provide music education to the community.

Now, being an Artistic Associate (Music) in West Kowloon Cultural District Authority, he aims to provide different platforms for established and emerging artists, and to organise exchange programmes for international artists to share their experience with Hong Kong artists and audiences and vice versa.
In this talk, Kung will share his artistic and curatorial paths from The Box to Street Music and community concerts to West Kowloon, all the experiments of his musical journey.
