The Language Lab is a well-established sonic experimental team from Hong Kong. Core team members are Mr. Koo Park-kin (Founder / Guitarist) and Mr. Tse Kam-po (Engineer / Percussionist). The Language Lab believes that music is an inborn language and is convinced that a concert will be formed organically with cognition. They also perceive that different environments with particular visual and acoustic features should go hand in hand with high-quality recordings of sonic experiment / performance to create a unique experience for both the artists and the audience.
The Language Lab realises the above beliefs by interweaving the immediate re-enactment of present sonic experiment / performance in various space in a speechless but communicative manner with live generated impromptu fragment of sounds, composed of the unconventional use of musical instruments and audio equipment. The seemingly independent yet interlocking components, the presence and the instant improvised sound fragments, create an emotional and spontaneous dialogue, which goes beyond any designated scores and lyrics.

Five Zero Four is an experimental noise music duo exploring feedback and sound generation.
A long hair boy and an oval face boy have been exploring the possibility of sounds and also the world. By chance, they were inspired to try experimental noise music. Green and inexperienced with inadequate equipment, all they can do is to utilize anything they can get in hand. They found that they can play it freely and therefore determined to have fun making noise music together. Five Zero Four is about two boys sharing things with each other: sound, music, space, the past, the present and the future.
