this is the city of strange
An album started off intended for contemporary ballet but slowly interrupted into short stories about a dying city. Gasping for air, trying not to drown under the currents of time. It was Pompeii and it was the trees in the breeze, it was the stars outside my window in a cold cold night and it is Hong Kong.
Singer-song writer Olivier Cong was born on December 7, in Hong Kong. An early writer and guitarist, Cong composed his first few songs when he arrived in the Uk and performed around pubs to people who'd paid attention.
His favourites are "Searching for the Raven" and "A ghost and his Paintings". Give it a listen when you have time.
