Eaton HK hosts third edition of UNHEARD Sound and Music Festival

Eaton HK once again demonstrates that it is more than just a hotel; it’s a hub of cultural and artistic innovation as it returns to host the third iteration of UNHEARD Sound and Music Festival.

Running from July 18 to 28, this year's festival promises a deep dive into the avant-garde and the experimental, hosted in partnership with Contemporary Musiking HK and dtby.

Expect a mix of live performances, talks, workshops, and screenings designed to challenge and expand your perceptions of sound.

This year, the festival explores this diverse sonic landscape through music-making and listening devices, sonic world-building, and the role of 3D modelling and electronics in modern music.

Look forward to live performances, music documentary screenings, workshops supported by Arturia and panels discussing China's experimental music scene and the diaspora's sounds.
