Mushrooms can Dance! 金菇跳舞MV, a “processing” creative project by pinkwork

Heard that “processing” is a very powerful and free Open Source (programming) language for artists/designers. Its developers from MIT said it could be used to do almost everything (check yourself in its official site http://www.processing.org/ ), so made me spend a few days to experiment with it and created this project, must give a special thank to these little Enoki Mushrooms. It’s a real time Audio Frequency Equalizer, Music Waveform Display, etc. In a word, if you input live music, these little mushrooms would dance instantly

既然你們人類說,”processing“這套免費程式語言是專為藝術家/創作人/設計師而設的,我就拿它來玩幾天。當然還要多謝一班小金菇的幫忙。我這個小程式,其實是即時的Frequency Equalizer, waveform顯示…等等,簡單來說,只要輸入音樂,小金菇馬上便會跳起舞來。部份聰明的人類,有時也會發明些有用的東西來,大家可上processing的官方網址看看這套語言的功能 … 是外星生命體pinkwork™粉紅貓說的。

celebrity makeup artist / chef ~ Felix Ferreira 菲星宜, 星級化妝師變廚師 / PINKWORK Video

Felix Ferreira is a top celebrity makeup artist in HK / Macau whose father is Portuguese and mother is Japanese. Felix cooked for his family at young age and his first cooking teacher is his mother. Though he has been working as a professional makeup artist for many years (many HK pop stars are his clients), he has never given up his cooking interest. He had also received formal training in a culinary school and opened a restaurant in Thailand. Last year he was invited to shoot a TV cooking program named “Felix Cooking in Macau“. The 13 cooking episodes was then aired in Malaysia and Macau, which turned out to be a Big Hit. Now Felix is planning to produce “Felix Cooking in HK” and open a private kitchen in Hong Kong … … :D MEOW, I just saw him doing a cooking demo last week on TVB. Click the video below could sEE/hEAR Felix talking more about himself.

菲星宜的爸爸是萄國人,媽媽是日本人,他自小便負責為家人煮飯,而媽媽就成了他第一位的廚藝老師。長大後他一直從事化妝工作,很多香港名人、明星也是他的客人,不過他沒有放棄「煮食」的興趣。他曾在泰國當地的廚藝學院接受正規廚藝訓練,也在當地開過餐廳﹝Felix聲明是「大排檔」﹞。上年有人邀請他試拍13輯烹飪節目《澳門星級厨房》,在馬來西亞電視台播出後大受歡迎。現在他正打算自行製作《香港星級厨房》及在香港開自己的餐廳。喵,粉紅貓也是上星期在TVB見他示範「煎鵝肝」,一時八卦,所以找他拍攝pinkwork小短片 … 大家可聽/看他親自講解怎樣將化妝廚藝兩種專業融為一體 …

This new coming HK girl dance group named “As One” has undergone intensive training for nearly one year by Sunny Wong (hk pop star Aaron Kwok ‘s choreographer) and will probably release their new album at the end of this year.

巔覆「性」女子組合~超粉紅 遇見粉紅貓 Ultrapink, a subversive HK Indie girl group

Came across this 2-girl INDIE group in a Shopping Mall where they held their first mini Solo concert. You know pinkcat is interested in everything related to pink color (actually their group name is inspired by “Ultravox“)… When back home, I googled them and found more and more about them and their record label. I finally know why they use the word “subversive” to describe themselves (well, anti-christian and pro homosexual equity). Though not all human would agree with all of their messages, I think human beings should respect each other.:lol:

Ultrapink, an electronic pop indie girl group comprised of two young and sexy girls, namely Naomi and Sadie. Formed in 2010, they’ve released two songs to date titled “Tong Zhi” and “Sex Bible” . The term “Tong Zhi” is a Chinese slang refers to sexual minorities, such as Lesbian and Gay.

“Reading the lyrics carefully, you’ll find our song is not about homosexuality, but about human beings.” said Chan Sau Pok (aka Ah Pok), the creator of Ultrapink. Pok together with several veteran indie / mainstream musicians formed the indie record label Animal Kouncil.

Ah Pok wrote clearly on his label ‘s official website that, one of the goals of setting up this small-sized but very innovative label is, through music to promote his liberal view of sexuality and anti-Christian message.

“Looking back the several-thousand years history of China, only until the recent few hundred years ( maybe since Qing Dynasty﹞, we would hold a conservative view on sex. On the contrary, according to our ancient Taoism (Daoism) philosophy, sexual energy is part of our life energy. Also in the old days we never had any laws that ban or restrict homosexuality … I hate some of the local Christian groups which deliberately misinterpret our history / tradition to support their views … ” Ah Pok wrote in his magazine ‘s column. WANT to know more about Ultrapink, and the creative team “Animal Kouncil” behind this project, click/ touch the links below. ( pinkwork™ city is a piece of artwork about a bunch of interesting human beings. Of course they will become my target :D )

那天行經朗豪坊,看見一隊由兩個女子組成,叫「超粉紅」的組合,已推出兩首電子音樂風格歌曲 ~ 《同志》及《性經》。粉紅貓對任何跟粉紅色有關的東西都感興趣 :evil: ,回家馬上google她們更多資料。嘩,一看她們那間獨立唱片公司的網頁 野獸會議 ,果然是有強烈訊息想表達,包括反基督教及反同性戀岐視,也終於明白為何她們用「巔覆」來形容自己了。雖然未必每個人類都同意他們,但人類應該是互相尊重的,而那麼有性格的人類,粉紅貓自然要親自見見/ 訪問她們,及「收集」他/她們的相片、聲音及影像,放上我的pinkwork虛擬城市﹝這其實是我的一件關於一些「有趣」人類的藝術創作。他們自然會成為我的目標!﹞

其實最「巔覆」應該是Ultrapink的創造人阿樸﹝陳守樸﹞背後的意念,我覺得兩位成員Naomi Sadie不過是阿樸及「野獸會議」整個創作團隊的意念演繹者。阿樸在唱片公司的網頁內,毫不掩飾寫明他的反基督教及自由性觀念的論點。他亦表明想借助音樂去傳達這些訊息 …想了解更多「超粉紅」及 「野獸會議」的意念,可接/點下面的連結,/ 他們親自講解 …

about Rainbow Gala ‘s Chloe 小撤


Chloe aka 小撒 is the founder of hk Dojinshi (self-published comics) organisation / event — Rainbow Gala. She has been a Japanese comics admirer since she was a child. Chloe published her first dojibshi at 12. After studying in UK and back to hk nearly 5 year ago, she decided to do something more ambitious, that is to organize a Dojinshi event mainly targeting for Hong Kong dojibshi creators.

Without any supports from big commercial brands or help from the others, Chloe successfully organized her first RG1 (Rainbow Gala) event in Dec 2007. She said she did all the things on her own, from getting the licenses, setting up a company, booking venue … etc..

Chloe ‘s efforts finally paid off. Now Rainbow Gala event has become more and more recognized by the local dojinshi scene. In RG3 which was just held in April 2009, more than 6,000 visitors and attenders were attracted to this event. RG6 is planned to be held in Dec this year and many commercial sponsors have already approached her …

當年一個23歲的女孩自己一手一腳, 成功搞了一個吸引超過6,000名參展人及參加者的本地同人誌活動.

此人就是Rainbow Gala的創辦人 — 小撒. 她12歲已出版了自己的第一本同人誌漫畫. 之後去了英國讀書離開了這圈子一會. 約兩年前返港後, 她決定要自己搞一個同人誌活動, 是特別為香港的同人誌創作人而設.

起初在沒有人幫忙及任何商業贊助下, 小撒由成立公司, 申請牌照, 預定場地都由自己一手包辦. 結果2007年12月成功舉辦了第一屆Rainbow Gala, 當時己經吸引了近200個同人誌組織參展. 如今Rainbow已經愈來愈壯大, 愈來愈受香港的同人誌圈子重視. 在2009年4月舉行的RG3, 吸引了超過6,000名參展人及參加者. 下屆RG6將於今年11月舉行 …

MEOW… a Canadian singer-song-writer / actress ~ Cory Lee 來自加拿大的創作歌手

This time PINKCAT introduces you all a Canadian singer-song-writer and actress, Cory Lee who was born and raised in Vancouver, Canada to a Chinese mother and German father. At age 15 she joined a 3-girl group named Ris-K and was offered a record deal by a big label. Unfortunately one of the group members said she wanted to get married and had baby, so everything ended suddenly. That also made Cory get the “Fire” to do her solo Album. After several years, Cory finally get a deal with Universal Music to put out her new Album worldwide. During this past few years, Cory has actually done a lot of things, such as releasing several successful singles including the big hit “The Naughty Song” , playing the role of Karma in the TV series “Instant Star“, and Miss Oh on “Degrassi” . Want to hEAR/sEE this music and acting talent talking about herself and her upcoming new album, you could go to my pink virtual city.

Meow, in the interview Cory said pop music in North America these days is driven by dance beat or melody hook … and the lyrics usually don’t say anything special, all are generic words … In Canto pop the situation seems to be different, our lyricists would write a story or a poem for a melody, and our singers are more and more into doing musicals. Cultural Difference ! :P

粉紅貓又找了一位有趣的人類做訪問。她就是加拿大的創作歌手及演員Cory Lee。她的母親是中國人,父親是德國人。本來幾年前,Cory已跟另外兩名少女組成了一隊組合Ris-K,並獲得一間國際唱片公司簽約出唱片。不過其中一位成員卻突然說要結婚生孩子,結果一切發展要停頓。經此一役,Cory更加決心要出版自己的個人唱片。經過幾年的努力,今年她終於能夠和環球唱片合作,將於年底推出全新唱片,並開始了她的亞洲宣傳之旅。其實過去幾年Cory也做了很多事情,包括推出了多首極受歡迎的單曲,如非常流行的「The Naughty Song」、在北美高收視電視劇集《Instant Star》及《Degrassi》中擔任主要角式等等。想聽聽/看看Cory親自介紹自己及講解快將面世的新專輯,可到我的粉紅城市 …

:D 訪問中,Cory說現在北美的流行曲都較著重「節拍」及「旋律」,反而歌詞都沒有特別意思。這似乎跟廣東歌很不一樣,我們的作詞人會為一段「旋律」作一個故事或一首詩 … 文化差異

A Taiwanese Androgynous girl group 台灣中性女子樂團MISSTER 酒店房驚見粉紅貓 …

A human friend of pinkcat (a young HK girl) just immigrated to Taiwan and is working as a freelance PR for many music groups there. She introduced this rising androgynous girl group “MISSTER” to me.

A group formed by Diana Tai who is the lead vocal and became popular through “One Million Star II” (Taiwan version of American Idol). She then opened a record label herself and along with the other four members, namely Chiao, Chris, Milk and Carol, formed this music group. So she is both the boss and artist of her company. They’ve just released their debut album 《特先生》last month and received a great response from critics and audience from Asia.

MEOW … there are very few music groups in Asia using this image and wish them success … WANT to hEAR/sEE them talking more about their music, could touch the interview sound tracks below.

粉紅貓一位剛「移民」到了台灣的人類朋友﹝一位香港女孩﹞介紹這隊中性女子組合給我認識的 …

該組合是由主音戴安娜領軍,她在幾年前在參加「星光2」比賽時已很多人認識,亦簽過唱片公司。不過從小已移民加拿大的她,當年剛回到台灣,只顧著和朋友玩,荒廢了事業,後來還跟經理人鬧翻了。幾年之後人成熟了,她和友人成立「新女帝企業」公司,並與其餘四名成員賴紫綸(Chris)、陳瑾怡(球球Carol)、王哲巧(Chiao)、潘宜萱(牛奶Milk)組成MISSTER。所以戴安娜既是藝人經紀人,也是被管理的藝人。

在加拿大修讀錄音工程的戴安娜花了很多心思在樂團的首張專輯《特先生》上。雖然走女子中性的路線一直不被看好,但專輯推出之後大獲好評,連行內人也讚好呢 … 想聽聽/看看她們親自講解新專輯的意念及製作過程,可點選下面的聲軌收聽。
