伍擎峯

Kelvin King Fung NG was born in Hong Kong and has studied in Hong Kong, USA and Austria. His works germinate from the core concern of ourselves as spatially and temporally co-existing beings, structuring available materials to examine conditions and issues arising from such facts at the existential level, such as presence, consciousness and intersubjectivity, and their possible meanings. In this sense they possess a high degree of affinity with philosophical outputs from a.o. Nancy’s being-with and Rancière’s distribution of the sensible, while their immanent problems and solutions are able to be illuminated and formulated with the help of knowledge from a.o. anthropology, embodied cognition, semiotics as well as cultural and spiritual practices. Most of his works recruit the entire audio-visual and cognitive faculty and call for heightened attention and empathetic engagement from the audience. 


伍擎峯生於香港,並曾就學於香港、美國及奧地利。其音樂作品萌芽自我們作為時空共存體此一核心議題,建構可用素材在根本層面上考察研究由此基礎形成的各種如「在場性」、「意識」及「互為主觀」等狀態條件與問題及其意義。從這個角度看,這些作品與南希的「共在」及洪席耶的「感性分配」等哲學產出關係密切,而其內在的音樂問題與解決方案則能透過人類學、具身認知學、符號學等領域及各文化與精神實踐活動中的知識得以協助𨤳清與規劃。大部分作品均牽涉觀眾整體視聽與認知能力,並要求高度專注力和同理投入度。
