Mo-Men-T is a Hong Kong-based experimental quintet
Mo-Men-T is a Hong Kong-based quintet, formed in 2012 as an ultra modern jazz affair. The collaboration soon bore fruit, as each member pitched their unique musical influences into the band. From this came a creative mixture of such musical currents as modern jazz, funk, and post-rock.
The result is a fresh sonic experience, one that is at once familiar and unpredictable. Compositions from Mo-Men-T are edgy and adventurous, able to stretch from a piano whisper to fiery fortes. Each member is empowered to freely express themselves, together pushing the music forward in search of new artistic heights.
In live performance, Mo-Men-T bonds with an audience through music born in the thrill of the moment. As it evolves from logical to free-form, patient to aggressive, the listener is exposed to the shifting gravities of improvised music. To add more fuel to the fire, Mo-Men-T is not afraid to tread the avant-garde, a bold and exciting musical frontier replete with meter-less and atonal forays.
Following its 2012 debut EP, “Compositions and Improvisation,” Mo-Men-T remains active in the studio, and completes a new full-length album. Released in April, their 2013 effort, “Infinite Lines”, features new compositions to inspire and capture their onstage adventurousness for the enjoyment of home listeners.
Mo-Men-T has performed at a variety of local and international music venues, notably the Hong Kong westKowloon Freespace Happening, Hong Kong Green Jazz Festival, Hong Kong People’s Fringe Festival, Taipei Fringe Festival, and the Taichung Jazz Festival.
自2012年推出首張EP 《Compositions and Improvisation》，最新專輯《Infinite Lines》已於2013年4月正式推出。專輯收錄8首原創樂曲，當中包括一首在錄音室裏即興的作品，可讓聽眾體驗Mo-Men-T即興演奏的魅力。Mo-Men-T不時舉行現場演出，而且積極參與本地及國際音樂活動。當中包括：香港西九文化區自由約、香港青年爵士音樂節、香港藝穗民化節、臺北藝穗節以及臺中爵士音樂節，獲得一致好評。
