Dickson Dee

Dickson Dee (Li Chin Sung) is a music producer in Hong Kong. He has been engaged in contemporary music industry for more than 30 years, especially the production and promotion of experimental music. Since 2017, he has been appointed Music Director of the International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong. In 1996, Dickson’s debut solo album PAST was released under Tzadik label (USA). Since then, he began to set foot in the field with musical styles ranging from avant-garde to experimental, music concrete, electronic, new classical, industrial noise, dance and electronic world jazz. He has performed under different names and formed several bands. He has also collaborated with various artists around the world. Dickson set up his own music label Noise Asia in the early 1990s and another personal label Dicksonia Audio. As independent labels in Hong Kong, Noise Asia and Dicksonia Audio not only help release and distribute overseas avant-garde musical works, but also give them a great degree of creative freedom.

Dickson was invited to various international art and music events, including Fabbrica EUROPA, Venice Biennale, Musik Triennale in Cologne, Bergen International Festival, Yokohama Triennale, Kitakyushu Biennale, Huayi Festival Singapore, Hanoi Sound Stuff Festival Vietnam, Taiwan International Music Festival, Shanghai International Arts Festival, Shenzhen Biennale of Urbanism / Architecture, New Vision Arts Festival Hong Kong and Silk Road Arts Festival Hong Kong, International Poetry Nights in Hong Kong, etc. In addition to concerts, Dickson also gives workshops and lectures at tertiary institutions, in the hope that his sharing would kindle students’ interest in sound art and music.
