Hong Kong-born composer and media artist GayBird is a renowned music director, composer, arranger and producer. He has participated in various capacities for a wide range of performances, theatre shows and music productions. His works have both been nominated and awarded at the Hong Kong Film Awards and the Golden Horse Awards, among others.
GayBird breaks away from traditional frameworks of traditional auditory art forms by combining elements of visual art, electro-mechanics, sculpture and installation art to offer a comprehensive experience. His works have been exhibited in numerous cities around the world including Arts Electronica in Austria, OzAsia Festival in Australia, Athens Digital Arts Festival, EXIT Festival in France and many more. With the support of the Hong Kong Arts Development Council, GayBird was commissioned for the 11th OzAsia Festival in 2017, exhibiting his first large-scale outdoor sound installation, Home, in Adelaide. In September 2018, his installation work Fidgety (in between up and down) received the 3D/Interactive Award under the renowned British digital art award, the Lumen Prize.
