Music Performance – Endless Cassette
In the 1980s, Cantopop brought cassette tapes into our homes, backpacks, and cars, leaving behind a generational memento. As we stand at the dawn of the AI revolution, why do we still have a soft spot for the Musicassette era? As part of the Lingnan Arts Biennale 2023, this musical happening on Lingnan campus will bring together the local indie band Cassette, Lingnan students, and Project Pedal, which showcases music and intergeneration dialogues: a reflection on who we were, how we are now, and what this sounds like.

Formed in 2016, after restructuring, the duo Cassette and now consists of the programmer Johnny and the lead singer Carmen. The name Cassette alludes to the forward and reverse mechanism of playing music, just like cassette tapes––where music can be played and sung freely, regardless of whether times are good or bad, and for audiences everywhere.
