Dark Cat

A final packed day for this, my fourteenth journey to HK, starts where it began - with a meeting with Mimi Chan the Head of the CASH (HK equivalent of PRS) Music Fund. In 2005 it was being the MD for a collaboration between musicians from HK and the UK at the Sage Gateshead that made me think ab...

Naamyang singers

I wonder who you are - reading this post. It is strange sending information into the ether - and then getting some stats back to say .... so many people read this story. For me the writing and reflecting is an essential part of the journey and though I spend energy telling people to read - the pur...

Intention

Travelling and working. Sleeping and waking too early on so many mornings.   Either the traffic or the light wakes me. First meeting this morning is for breakfast with Bill (husband of HK Clore Fellow Selana who has been on a placement at More Music this year). He is a singer in the HK...

Conversations with friends

My feet hurt and my back aches. That's the result of running in the sun with a drum on my back. A morning off to go shopping to a beautiful shop called Goods Of Desire where they use old HK to inspire very well crafted bags, cards, clothes and more. I do some Christmas shopping before meet...

A day on my own in a crowd

Being a one man band is a strange life. Dressing up to sweat at yet another festival. Singing songs, being digitally captured, making friends with children and adults, smiling a lot. Wandering around alone looking at the people.    Who are they. Few of my HK friends are here. Good lo...

Difference and Belonging

I have spent the day thinking about the divisions in the wider world and the horrors of the conflicts at this point in our lives. The extent of the immense suffering that is on the horizon for the refugees struggling across Europe as winter comes in and the new waves of war in Syria seems to make my...

Liberalism, Communism and Art

Woke early and hung my washing out to dry! It is a little colder today but still clear and the view to the harbour is lovely. Off to APA to deliver a session for Mok on a course he is running called Liberalism, Communism and Art. A 50 minute lecture on my work in this field. Fascinating to loo...

Brain Soup

This was an amazing day. Truly one of the best HK days for many years with all the aspects of my work here connecting. I learnt so much about myself today as well as having deep conversations about truth, connection, music and culture - and just having a great time! It started at 9am with Albert...

Community Therapist?

Only day five!?  It seems as if I have been away from the UK and my family for so long.    Around by www.Soundpocket.org.hk in a gallery in East Kowloon. A sonic experience to start the day with some simple great ideas. I would like to do a soundart festival in Morecambe someday...

Time for a swim

I usually find a style for my blog posts. I have been writing these short 'travelogues' for 9 years and over 18 trips to the Far East. Sometimes they start with a poem - a haiku or a rhyming pattern dictating the character of the writing. I haven't found the focus this trip. Maybe I would like it ...

Experiments

Every time I come to this city I run around my new neighbourhood to see what I can see. Here there is the Cherry Street Park with it's strange amphitheatre spaces, Tai Chi groups, older people exercising and runners. I sweat in the heat and my face turns red very quickly! Tomorrow I will try for a...

Orientation

Every time I come to this city I stay in different place in different kinds of accommodation. Only once has this been a posh hotel! This morning I wake up of the 28th floor of Flourish mansions in a small flat in the middle of Mong Kok. A deep sleep, catching up on those flights. The Apple stor...

Where is my second brain?

  Arrival after virtually no sleep on the plane from Dubai and with a laptop that seems to be out of order. Spaced out to be sure. The magic of the internet helps me re-find the information to my airbnb and then onto the bus A21 into the city. It's hot and very familiar as I haul the red dru...

On the Road again

  I've packed the necessary kit for 2 weeks on the road. I'm leaving my lovely home by the sea. Heading for Hong Kong to see old friends and make new friends. It's nine years since I started these travels East. Ahead are 4 lectures and 11 workshops all about music in the community. 2 da...
