Programme Notes

被譽為「香港數碼之源」的深水埗,以專門售賣電腦產品及電子零件世界知名,可與日本的秋葉原和台北的光華商場互相輝映。數碼之源地標位於深水埗地鐵站D2出口後,於2004年揭幕。此地標除了是為表示這區是電腦產品的集中地外,還標誌著香港最早售賣電子產品的地方之一—鴨寮街。此外,近年舉辦的香港電腦節,是深水埗區一年一度的大型活動,也是香港最大型的戶外資訊科技展覽。此曲原為中樂大樂隊於2008年而寫,管樂版於2010年由香港節日管樂團首演。

The Sham Shui Po district in Kowloon is popularly known as the ‘digital hub in Hong Kong’ with its concentrated source of computer products and electronic accessories. It enjoys equal fame with Akiba of Tokyo and the Guang Hua Computer Market of Taipei. The landmark sign of ‘The Digital Hub’, which can be found at D2 exit of the Sham Shui Po MTR Station, was unveiled in 2004. It not only highlights the area as the hub of computer products, but also reinforces the status of Ap Liu Street as one of the earliest sources for electronic products in Hong Kong. The Hong Kong Computer Festival, which has become an annual event in recent years, is also a major attraction in Sham Shui Po as the largest open-air IT exhibition in Hong Kong. Digital Hub is originally scored for a large Chinese orchestra in 2008. The wind band version was commissioned by the Hong Kong Festival Wind Orchestra in 2010 for the open division contest at Singapore International Band Festival, and the 1st prize (gold) was awarded. The subsequent performances were given in Hong Kong (2010), Europe (2011) and Guangzhou (2011).
