A Journey in Music

BY ALAN KOR LOONG LAU
@ VOL 4 ON APR 15, 2017

As Forrest Gump said, “Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.” For 12-year-old Alan Kor Loong Lau, newly marooned in a boarding school and away from home for the first time, a bid to escape the rigors of school sport or uniformed groups led him into the school choir room, an encounter which was to change his life forever.

Ostensibly a personal journey into discovering music and singing, A Journey in Music is also about how big things start small, and the importance of random accidents.

What is a Musician?

BY ELIZABETH SIMCOCK
@ VOL 24 ON NOV 09, 2017

Elizabeth Simcock wants to explore how we understand the word "musician." Musicians are powerful: picture people fawning over a lead singer on guitar. But musicians are also powerless: imagine the parent saying, "You're doing WHAT for a living?" Being a musician has a certain mystique that is captivating, even though the reality can be challenging in every way possible. But saying, "I am a musician." What does that really mean? Come along on a 20x20-second ride that may change the way you think of yourself.
