Ten Minutes

Ten Minutes is evocatively described as “a nebula of art, music, words, thoughts.” What began just over one year ago as a small online music project curated by Joanne Lam has recently developed into a creative collaboration between Lam and artist Kyu Hwang. As the title indicates, each mix runs for ten minutes and encapsulates diverse themes, emotions and moods that unfold as you listen.

While Lam beautifully stitches together different pieces of music to make each cohesive mix, Hwang is responsible for the stunning illustrations that are used as a visual introduction to the miniature opuses. So far, their combined talents are proving to be a most wonderful match. It will be fascinating to see how this project develops. If this doesn’t beat the Monday morning blues, I don’t know what will.
