We swallow the depth of our soul
With Decades of rootlessness

DECADE Ensemble is the first experimental music group in Hong Kong that truly defies musical genres and breaks down boundaries between the academics and the underground. The ensemble was initiated by composer/experimental musician Steve HUI. Each member of the ensemble comes from a very different background, ranging widely from academically trained musicians, self-trained experimentalists, street performers to underground noise practitioners. With the tactical use of unconventional composition, improvisation and instrumentation, the ensemble becomes an alchemical lab of sonic transmutation that goes far beyond the original ‘Decade’.

In this debut multi-media performance, the DECADE Ensemble will bring in a wide range of music elements: electronic music, classical music, jazz music, noise music, ethic music, and boil them down into new forms with improvisation. Along this transmutation process, the ensemble will transfigure itself from duo, trio, quintet and at the end, to a full tenet, together with the re-make and original video footage of 100 years of Hong Kong History.
