Cityscape and images of a city shed influence on the artists who dwell there as well as on their works. And the creativity of artists influences the cityscape and our memories of the city. Electronic musicians from Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taipei and Shenzhen are invited to create works on the topic of “City Odyssey”, through the exploration of Hong Kong’s cityscape. Four guest speakers from Beijing and Guangzhou would also be invited to share their experience on urban spaces, namely their personal magical mystery City Odyssey, in this occasion.
