PROJECT AFTER 6

PROJECT AFTER 6: Busking continues in October

< BACK TO THE MAG

“You learn so much when you get out there and experience more gigs opposed to just sitting behind a computer,” says singer-songwriter Adrian Fu, who will be participating as a performer for the second time at PROJECT AFTER 6: BUSKING.

Fu can relate to the uncertainty and anxiety of budding musicians but he was helped when he met producer Jim Lee. “He signed me when no one wanted my songs,” Fu says. “The first thing I asked him was, ‘What kind of stuff do you want me to write?’ to which he responded, ‘Don't be silly, just write your stuff.’ He gave me this freedom of creativity that I thought I would not have.”

This year PROJECT AFTER 6: Busking drew from a diverse pool of city-wide talent. “Opening up to Hong Kong is awesome, why not bring it on and let the world know how much talent there is here” Fu says. “Buskers shouldn’t get really tight, the quality of the voice, music and how they play is so subjective, so it doesn’t really matter as long as you practise well.”

Besides PROJECT AFTER 6: Busking, Fu has been busy working on his new album, which will be released in a few months time. “I always feel that to prepare for an album you have to create at least 50 to 80 songs and then go through them all and edit it down” Fu says. “The songs should reflect some of the things I’ve been going through in my life.” Fu hasn’t decided yet what he will perform this year at PROJECT AFTER 6 but shared he plans to do something more experimental. Stay tuned to find out more and here is October’s lineup of buskers.
