Para Site is pleased to present Tools to Orchestrate, two Sundays of public programmes in conjunction with Orchestrations, a solo exhibition by Samson Young. This exhibition looks at the modalities of “orchestra-making” in the various communities of Hong Kong, and draws from Young’s understanding of the politics behind the Western musical notation system. Orchestrations is the culmination of a year-long musicological research into the history of orchestras by Young in conversation with Para Site curator Qinyi Lim and musicologist Dr. Giorgio Biancorosso.
During the final weekend of the exhibition, musiciologist Dr and Para Site curator will provide 30-minute guided tours of the exhibition, as well as discuss the works and research process behind the project.
