From the moment that computers became personal, what it means to be human fundamentally changed. Symphony No. 1, The Metaverse represents Leung’s personal experience of what it means to be alive in Hong Kong, in the current of a data-driven 21st century. Each movement celebrates and captures the experience of progressive milestones regarding the advancements of the Internet. Designed to be musically palpable, textural, stabs reflect the injection of energy we feel when our phones buzz. Everchanging tonal centers keep pace with the rapidly evolving technology modalities in our lives. The Metaverse Symphony will be first premiered in the Cultural Centre Concert Hall, then in the Sandbox as an immersive concert experience.
