Ho Ching-wai


Ho Ching-wai is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music degree at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, majoring in Music Composition & Electronic Music under the guidance of Ms. Li Kar-yee. Her previous works include chamber music, A cappella, pop songs and film scoring. She has been awarded the HKSAR Government Scholarship, the HKAPA Recruitment & Outstanding Scholarships and Mr. K. S. Cheng Memorial Scholarship throughout her study years.

This piece is inspired by the nostalgic childhood plaything, the kaleidoscope. The composition depicts the shimmering light passing through the kaleidoscope, the colourful geometric and symmetrical shapes, and the ever-changing views produced by the rotating mechanism through the use of various timbres and the rhythmic interplay of percussion instruments.
