The Gong Strikes One’s Naamyam

The Gong Strikes One’s Naamyam




Established by Kong Chan and King-Chi Lee, The Gong Strikes One endeavours to explore different performance settings of​ Chinese opera, as well as to rejuvenate the art form through instrumental concerts, narrative songs, theatrical works, improvisations, and cross-media performances. In this lecture demonstration on naamyam (a form of Cantonese narrative singing), the artists aim to analyse and decipher its ‘source code’ and illustrate how new compositions and new forms can be extensively reinvented without the intervention of a composer or lyricist. Apart from moderating this session, Professor Chan Hing-yan will also join in with his yehu and invite the audience to have a glimpse into the intriguing world of traditional Chinese music.
