About
樂團追求創新,以風格領路,從2003年成立以來,致力為本土年青音樂家鋪墊演藝平臺,培養文化涵養及藝術心靈,讓團員逐步獲得社會上的高度認同,並且成為其他年青人正面的文化典範。多位既年青又富活力的本地音樂家,其中包括現正就讀或畢業於各大專院校者,均為熱愛音樂藝術、具有高水平的演奏人才。她們以清新的氣品、高尚的文化修養以及積極奮進的精神面貌,用阮琴及琵琶作交流媒介,除努力樹立起文化菁英的榜樣外,更全面彰顯樂團在當代表演藝術領域,游走於中西文化、創造時代質感的過程中,所兼具的活潑靈巧的本土意識形態。

“Innovation” and “a strong stylistic identity” are the credo of Wuji Ensemble. Founded in 2003, the group has been dedicated to creating a performing platform for local musicians, cultivating cultural insights and nurturing artistic accomplishments to systematically enable its members to gain recognition in the community and be cultural role models for other young people. The Ensemble is made up of eight members who are either current students or graduates of tertiary institutions, all highly skilled and experienced performers of the Chinese plucked-string instruments of the ruan and the pipa and sharing a love for music and culture. Young, dynamic, refreshing in their approach to music, knowledgeable in the arts and enterprising in their vision, these musicians not only aspire to become cultural icons but have also shown that as they move easily between the East-West cultures and create what is tangibly contemporary, they have made Wuji Ensemble an exponent of contemporary artistic styles representative of the lively, engagingly flexible spirit of its home base of Hong Kong.
「無極」是指可永續發展,無邊無界限的意思。“Wuji” in Chinese means “boundless”, “endless” and “continuously evolving”.
