‘Writers write not only about “sound art” per se,
but of listening-to, listening-before and listening-after.’

– Yeung Yang, curator of Around sound art festival 2009

《Around 聽在》is the first book published by soundpocket, a registered charity
promotes sound art and its research and education in Hong Kong. The title of this
book is derived from Around sound art festival 2009 – a festival of listening and the
first of its kind in Hong Kong. Artists, curators, critics and musicians contribute 16
essays on listening in less noticed places in Hong Kong like Motat on Lamma Island,
empty public housing estates in Wong Chuk Hang, and listening to frogs and rivers,
listening to distance. The book includes a CD with 12 recordings of site-specific
works presented in the festival.
About Around sound art festival

Reaching its second year, Around sound art festival continues to highlight the
importance of listening in art. The title of the festival and the book “Around” is an
extension of the name “soundpocket”. They both emphasize comportment and
bearing, what lies around and makes them possible. The Chinese title of Around is
ting zai (Putonghua) and ting joi (Cantonese). It means both “listen at” or “listen in”,
and “listen to be”. When used as part of a phrase, ting joi designates the place and
time of listening, for instance, “ting joi Lamma” means to listen in Lamma, and “ting
joi 2009” means to listen in 2009. The broader meaning of “to be” is the human
horizon against which all listening activities are experienced and understood.
