An Evening of Music and Animated Wonder

The interweaving of murmuring voices, strings, beats, and rhythms seamlessly merges into the audience's ethereal memories, akin to a dream. This medley injects a variety of musical elements into Kongkee’s science-fiction extravaganza. 

"Delusion Beat" is inspired by Kongkee's comic Dragon’s Delusion, where Qu Yuan transforms into an electronic guitarist. In a world filled with endless desires, he uses music to enlighten souls who have been eroded by these desires. Kongkee also envisions Qu Yuan's soul reincarnating 2,000 years later, awakening in a cyberpunk rock world.

For this extraordinary musical event, Tai Kwun Contemporary will invite Veegay, the music director of Dragon’s Delusion — Preface, along with pianist and violinist K Tsang, vocalist Wynne Lo, and DJ Shelf-Index, who will be performing live music together. 

Join us for this evening of music and animated wonder!

Quotas are limited, on a first-come, first-served basis.

With support from the "Youth Creation Funding Scheme," Wynne released her debut solo EP, "Brave and Timid."
