Heta Uma
——–
愛憤怒﹐愛消極﹐愛簡單﹐愛坦白﹐愛感動﹐愛悲憐眾生﹐愛音樂。
從很小的時候開始﹐音樂一直都是逃避現實和不愉快經歷的唯一渠道。長大以後﹐音樂給了我們智慧、勇氣和能量去面對人生裡種種的虛偽、謊言和孤獨….

更重要的是﹐每當我們覺得很害怕、軟弱、失去自我的時候﹐音樂把我們的心重新燃點起來。我們不再害怕跟真實的自己交鋒, 跟真實的自己溝通。

音樂比人生更加的真實﹐很慶幸我們從來沒有離棄過音樂﹐就像音樂從來沒有離棄過我們一樣。

人群與人群之間的排擠﹐孤立和絕望﹐對職權,教育制度和社會制度的漠視和不信任﹐諷刺和幽默感﹐不信任真愛,但同時候又不願放棄追求著真愛與和平﹐性愛和性幻想….等等…這些都是能從Heta Uma的音樂世界裡面體會到的….

The Hurricane
————
Angela (Vocal), Felix (Keyboard), Samson 阿昌(Drums), Leo (Guitar), Arthur (Bass)

The Hurricane成立於2006年初夏,曲風雖以poprock為主,但亦擅於把各種音樂風格如Alternative、funk及Jazz等元素融入創作之中,
使歌曲顯得更豐富多變,營造出令人討喜的調性。

Hurricane即「颶風」之意。
颶風總是來得突然,無法預測,並且獨一無二。
我們希望我們的音樂有如颶風一般,震撼聽眾耳朵,展現出無限的生命力,打動每一顆心。

年來,The Hurricane在不同的樂隊比賽中屢獲殊榮。
計有2006年全港青少年樂隊比賽中奪得「學生組優異獎」;
2008年明愛青少年樂隊比賽中贏得「原創歌曲組冠軍」和「最佳鍵琴手」;
以及在2009青少年樂隊比賽中獲票選為「我最喜愛樂隊」。

2010年,The Hurricane獲邀參與香港旅發局主辦之「香港龍舟節‧生力暢飲樂園」之大型戶外演出,
又先後兩年晉身「香港動漫電玩節‧Heartbeat青年音樂祭」之準決賽,登上會展舞台,實力備受不同聽眾的肯定和認同。
樂隊亦獲不同媒體訪問,包括香港電台,亞洲電視,Re:spect紙談音樂雜誌及bc Magazine等。

2010年8月,The Hurricane推出首張專輯《Close to the Wind》,收錄六首原創作品,由香港獨立音樂廠牌89268發行,
現已於香港唱片、HMV、CD Warehouse等各大唱片店有售。

Inspired by the trivia of everyday life, songs produced by The Hurricane can embrace the diversity of humanity and life in general.

The audience will be happily trapped by The Hurricane!

Life Was All Silence
—————-
Experimental, Improvise

Life Was All Silence is an instrumental band composed of Leaf on bass guitar, Frank on keyboard and Travis on drum. Starting with lo-fi, improvised home recordings, the trio blends live instrumentation with electro-acoustic, incorporate electronics, loop pedals, sansula, LWAS creates metronomic sound with subtle changes in beat and rhythm.

During the downtime in the fall of 2009, three members began improvising in their studio and came to an idea to play something atmospheric and minimal. LWAS caught attention from opening slot for Arms and Sleepers and Macbeth. Absent in vocalist, guitarist, the trio liberate spacious and expansive soundscape. Melancholic, fragile and emotional charged live performance brings audience a spiritual music journey.
