$75 – $380

EVENT DESCRIPTION

An in-depth SHORT CUT – to “seeing” the music!
You will not listen to music in the same way again.

What do you SEE when you hear the birthday song?
What do you HEAR when you see a big round moon on a clear night?

See the music, with our ears…
Hear the music, with our eyes.

What did Debussy actually see when he composed Clair de Lune?
And which sea was he referring to in La Mer?

Are visual artists inspired by music?
And does music sound different with visuals?

Yip Wing-sie takes you through a vividly picturesque journey, with works by artists Vivian Ho (HKS Artist Associate) and Jessica Zoob.

Come SEE the music for yourself!
