Karmen Cheung Yuen-tung is a fearless explorer of life, unabashedly questioning universal values of truth, oneness, commitment, peace and love.

Certain layers — in most cases the sonic foreground of such situations — are consciously muted or suppressed, and as a result the less-commonly-noticed layers are revealed. Instructions on how to stage these situations range from specific directives, to more open approaches that require negotiation with the participants. Mute is not silence. Muting is not the same as doing nothing. Rather, the act of muting is an intensely focused re-imagination and re-construction of the auditory. It involves the conscious suppression of dominant voices, as a way to uncover the unheard and the marginalised, or to make apparent certain assumptions about hearing and sounding. This must be done without a diminution of the energy that is normally exerted in the performance of the composition in question. Ensemble-ship, phrasing, engagement of the bodies and all other factors pertaining to the performative intent of the work must be preserved as far as possible, but the bowed musical notes are not to be heard. Suppress the consciously sound-producing constituent of the performance.
