I’m really happy that the relaunch of the app, Augmented Chinatown 2.0 by me working with Chinese Arts Now, Donald Shek, Joel Tan and many great artists, has received great response.  It got 表情圖示表情圖示表情圖示表情圖示 from The Stage and Lyn Gardner called it ‘infinitely touching’. If you’re planning to travel to centre London please do experience it in Chinatown. (Alternatively you can also experience remotely at home.) The app will be permanently availably on App Store and Google Play

I just finished recording my new piano album and plan to release it early November 2020. Here is a little preview for you. Let me know if you have any feedback!

On Wednesday 30 September 7-8 pm, I will be chairing a panel discussion ‘Combining Technology and Arts’ with three amazing artists/producer: Seph Li, creative coder and media artist, AR artist/developer Donald Shek and Tuyet Van Huynh, an independent theatre & film producer and curator. It’s a free event but require registration. If you’re interested in the topic, hope to see you there!

Please stay safe and well!
