The Up:Strike Project: Beer Pairing with Jess Tsang

  • Ho Sze Kwong Hong Kong (map)

∆ Chamber percussion music and Craft beer pairing ∆

The Up:Strike Project will be partnering with Jess Tsang, founder of Listenbeer, a project dedicated to pairing music with craft beers. Fascinated by the worlds of contemporary music, material culture, speech, and the culinary arts, Jess views percussion as a flexible field with endless possibilities for intersection.

Beer and music, why?
We agree with Jess - "Listenbeer is a new entryway for audience members, fusing together two closely related habits: you go to a concert, you have a beer. Why shouldn’t what you physically consume be as important as what you sonically consume?"

Special thanks to Hoszekwong for co-hosting our concert.
