10 9 8 7...What's this all about?

關於《10 9 8 7...》 

We've been feeling it - The number of very hot days continues to rise in the recent years. Extreme weather is becoming more and more common. Air pollution is gradually suffocating us... However, it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that the reasons behind these drastic changes are constantly being ignored by people.

The Doomsday Clock is moving its hands closer to midnight. It is like a countdown. The clock is hypothetical but it represents the possibility of catastrophe caused by detrimental human activities. It reflects some existential threats to humanity and the planet, especially climate change which is already impacting our living environment and ecosystem.

The clock is now just at 2 minutes to midnight. It comes to me in a flash of inspiration to work on this music project revolving around the fears about time, love, environment and catastrophe.

你有感到我們所身處的環境變得越來越不尋常嗎?天氣狀況變得異常反覆、酷然天氣日子愈趨頻繁、空氣污染快要去令人感到窒息的地步了⋯⋯但箇中的原因往往都被人們忽略。

末日鐘正在向前一分一秒的推撥,如果你沒有聽過末日鐘的話,它是一個警示幾類已存在的重要人類活動以致地球面臨末日的虛構鐘面,尤其當中的氣候轉變問題已逐漸影響我們的環境和生態系統。

現時末日鐘只剩兩分鐘便搭正「午夜」,這啟發到我去創作音樂來隱喻地表達現時地球正很脆弱。

平安靜 (Lyric Video)

小小支持

In October 2018, I'll be releasing the Cantonese EP 10 9 8 7... In addition to the lyrics 我沒有那麼好 (I'm not that good) written by Ventus Lau, I've written/produced all of the five tracks in my own right.

I'm calling upon this campaign and I hope you would support my very first independent music project and the physical release of the EP. There are several pledge options. You will also get some rewards as followings. :^)

我希望於2018年十月推出這張音樂專輯 《10 9 8 7...》。除了《我沒有那麼好》由可凌填詞外,我花了很多時間獨力編寫及製作了五首歌曲。

透過這個平台,我希望你可以支持我這第一張實體獨立音樂專輯,你的支持還會得到以下的回禮:

Risks and challenges

As a complete newcomer, I've set the fund goal low just to cover a small run of CD duplication. But I would be grateful if we surpass the goal so that it could also cover all the other costs such as mastering, design, release, marketing and the rewards etc. :^)
