ART WORK/PROJECT NAME: Relentless Melt No. 9: Audio Visions
Relentless Melt No. 9: Audio Visions presents a selection of abstract and experimental animation works made in Hong Kong. Spanning different techniques and materials, these works are brought together by their approach to visual abstraction and formal experimentation, and their search for synaesthetic experience and visual music. The programme includes audio-visual collaborations between a range of Hong Kong-based artists and international sound and music producers such as Julien Mier, Isan, Ulf Langheinrich, Lux Prima, and Matthias Kispert.
