感謝李志豪老師的邀請, 我們與救世軍石湖學校的中四至中六同學進行了兩次聆聽工作坊。通過聆聽練習,提出關於聲音、聆聽、自身及社會的問題,鼓勵同學主動聆聽,主動創作。











Thanks for the invitation by Mr. Lee Chi Ho, we held two listening workshops with F.4 to F.6 students of The Salvation Army Shek Wu School. Through the listening exercises, we raised the question about sound, listening, yourself and the relation with the society, thus to encourage students to become an active listener, also be active to create.

In the first session, we turned the daily mundane materials into “sound objects”, for instance, rubber band, plastic fork, file holder, water, paper, glass bottle, metal box, drainer etc of different combination. Some students took the role as “performer” and some took the roles as “conductor”, together with some beats, students jammed an improvised ensemble.

After the students made the sound map in the second session, they compared and realised each of them could have different interpretation of the same sound, it is very subjective and unique. Take a look for the following students to see 3 different ways of expressing cicada’s sound: (see above soundmaps)

Finally, 60 students picked an impressive sound they heard in the campus, and mimicking this sound together to reconstruct the soundscape of “early summer afternoon of The Salvation Army Shek Wu School”. (ooops, why so many weird and noisy creature had come out!)


There are many ways to record sound,  mimicking sound, reinterpret sound with a group is also a way to record and create.

“What sound makes you scared?” A little boy said, “Tiger!” “How does that sound like?” He said, “I have never seen tiger, nor heard their voice.“ This little boy reminds us that whether we have taken the daily listening perception way too granted?

Invited by Ms CHUNG Siu-Mui, The Library by soundpocket joined Tai Po Youth Art Festival 2015, and held an Itchy Ear Listening workshop. The workshop attracted elderly, kids and parents, couples and teenagers to participate and use the ears, headphones and drawings to explore listening and sound. Age doesn’t avoid the participants to interact, the surprise from sounds encouraged them to share and ask questions among themselves.

Tai Po Youth Arts Festival 2015 is organized by Tai Po Home Affairs Department and Tai Po District Youth Network, and held at Tai Po Civic Centre and the former Tai Po Government Secondary School from March 27th to 28th, 2015.

甚麼是令你會「驚的聲音」? 問小弟弟,他說是老虎;那聲音是怎樣的?他卻說從沒見過,也沒聽過牠的叫聲。小弟弟的老虎分享提醒了我們對待平日的聆聽是否太理所當然?

聲音圖書館獲鍾小梅邀請參與「大埔青年藝術節2015」, 舉行「抓耳朵」聆聽工作坊。吸引了長者、 幼童和家長、夫婦、青年人一同用耳仔, 用耳機, 用繪畫了解聲音。年紀沒有分隔參與者的互動,聆聽的驚喜使他們願意分享、互相發問。

「大埔青年藝術節2015」由大埔民政事務處及大埔區青年網絡主辦, 2015件3月27至28日一連兩日於大埔文娛中心及前大埔官立中學舉行。

Thanks for the invitation by Ms Liu Chor-wa, we held a listening workshop with S.K.H. Leung Kwai Yee Secondary School’s Form 4 students on 4th and 11th Mar 2015. This listening experience was part of the Life Education programme. Through the listening exercises, we hope to encourage the students to open a perception to explore the surrounding, and take listening as a way of knowing ourselves and each other.

And each of us chose a favorite sound, feeling a bit shy, we reconstructed the soundscape of 28 Hiu Ming Street in a Wednesday afternoon.

感謝廖楚華老師的邀請, 我們於3月4及11日與聖公會梁季彝中學的中四同學進行了聆聽工作坊。這是生命教育中的一節聆聽體驗, 希望藉此鼓勵同學打開聽覺感官去理解世界, 從而以聆聽作為認識自我、觀照彼此的方法。
