Sound and silence are two relative concepts and both sides of the same coin.
Sound artist Hakgwai plays a variety of unique instruments that mimic bird singing, insect screaming, trees quenching and water flowing through stones to create a symphony of nature with Six-swing Donut that swings and hums in harmony with our breath and heartbeats. Abandon the stresses during the pandemic to trek into the soul and search for voices that are waiting to be heard, the quietness of sound and the music of silence.

A local sound artist dedicated to producing music and theatre, Hakgwai, in addition to be a designer and performer, can also be seen busking in the streets or teaching music.
Inspired by traditional and modern unique instruments ranging from the Australian Didgeridoo to the handpan, he seeks to achieve the perfect balance between breath, music and zen to express the very concept of ‘zen music’. Playing aboriginal music while performing breathing exercises, he invites the public to respond to their physical and psychological needs.
