KUNG, Chi Shing
Kung was born in 1961 and raised in Hong Kong. He studied classical music and composition in the United States with Allen Trubitt and George Crumb. He focuses on experimentation with different types of music and art forms.
In 1987, Kung and Peter Suart founded a theatrical music ensemble 'the box' in Hong Kong. The band occupies an unusual position in Hong Kong culture, one which straddles popular and experimental forms.
Since 1996 he has created, composed and staged four full-length music theatre pieces: Destiny Travels Limited, The Floating Bridge, City Inside a Broken Sky and M Garden. He has collaborated frequently with choreographers and theatre artists, and has performed his music in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, Cuba, Tashkent, New York, London, Berlin and Venice. Kung’s recordings on CD include Destiny Travels Limited and Bluesilence/Fishdreams. Kung is currently involved with actively supporting independent musicians and organising 'Open Music' programmes on the streets of Hong Kong.
