Remixing Community is a three-year community music programme in Hong Kong, which follows 12 years of community music development between Hong Kong arts organisation, Centre for Community Cultural Development (CCCD), and More Music from the UK.

About Remixing Community

Based on a multicultural and inclusive perspective, practitioners of community music use different music-related techniques – including music and multi-arts games, folk songs and stories sharing, music jamming and song making – to help participants explore their emotions, thoughts and identity in community-based settings, stimulating their willingness and potential to share, create and perform.

From November 2018 to October 2021, Remixing Community will:

  • host small projects in all 18 districts of Hong Kong
  • create and run a new elders choir
  • organise annual showcase performances
  • produce recordings of songs and music

Launch and history

The Long Walk

The Long Walk

The project was launched in November 2018 with a series of workshops on the theme of Community Music Leadership run by More Music Founder, Pete Moser.

Local practitioners came together to confirm values, consider pedagogy, develop vision and continue to develop a friendship group.

The starting point for this was a More Music piece entitled The Long Walk, which was a response to the 2004 tragedy in Morecambe Bay in Lancashire in the North of England (where More Music is based) when 23 Chinese cocklers lost their lives in the sea at night.

Out of this tragedy has grown a positive programme that has involved thousands of people in Hong Kong and Southern China in music-making and community cultural development.

Pete Moser has written about this 12-year journey in 240 blog posts here.

Community music in Hong Kong

Implemented by music teachers, musicians, social workers and music therapists, community music has become a popular art form in international contexts.

In Hong Kong, some project-based implementation has also been conducted. It will  take time and effort for community music to become a constant and sustainable approach in Hong Kong.

The I Speak Music project

I Speak Music

Surrey Music Hub, Westfield Primary School, Bonsey Lane, Kingfield, Woking GU22 9PR, UK

Youth Music

  • "When I came to this country it was a bit strange to me, it didn't feel very comfortable to be in a new place, new language and meeting new people, going back to square one. Meeting people like Jim [Pinchen, project manager] made such a difference in my life - I think everyone feels the same when they come and take part in this project. They feel welcome and feel like they can play a part" - Rajhad Haddad, violist, I Speak Music Community Orchestra
  • "What I love about it is the diversity of the group and the fact that, whenever we have a rehearsal, everyone comes not quite knowing what's going to happen, not quite confident, slightly insecure, and some of them come from quite a solitary place. By the end of the rehearsal the energy of the music has really solidified everyone together - it's a beautiful energetic experience." - Sara Khoroosi, freelance musician, Surrey Arts worker

  • To bring together professionals and community groups who work with, or have an interest in supporting newly arrived and vulnerable young people through the arts and music.
  • To deliver song writing taster workshops, music workshops, and a celebration concert of participants' experience.
  • To develop the musical skills and build the self-confidence of the young musicians.
  • To allow tutors, supporters and project partners to also grow through this experience by gaining a better understanding of the challenges these young people face and grow in confidence in engaging with them.
  • To inspire participants to join and progress onto other Surrey Arts ensembles and groups.
  • To continue to develop what they have learned and explore music genres after the project ends.
