Freespace Jazz Fest: Imaginarium – HK/Cologne

31 October 2021 - 8:00 pm - 9:20 pm



A transcontinental multimedia experience combining music, technology and free improvisation

Imaginarium – HK/Cologne is a real-time collaboration between musicians from Hong Kong and Germany that combines the exploratory nature of last year’s Jazz Imaginarium with the border-transcending essence of the Experimental Jazz Lab.

Connecting artists and audiences on opposite sides of the globe – in Freespace, Hong Kong and Stadtgarten, Cologne – the immersive experience explores the possibilities of enhanced real-time audio-visual technology. The result is a multimedia virtual and real-life free improvisation jam that encourages new encounters, new types of communication and new forms of musical and visual experimentation.

Imaginarium – HK/Cologne is co-presented and co-produced by Freespace and Goethe-Institut Hongkong, and is part of West Kowloon’s mission to establish international platforms and initiate long-term artistic collaborations.

Approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes, no intermission.

Cello: Elisabeth Coudoux
Trumpet: Pablo Glw
Piano: Philip Zoubek

Participating Artists in HK:
Multi-instrumentalist: Nelson Hiu
