Music that’s not for the masses
Tune into White Noise

Turn on the radio, and you may find yourself out of the musical ‘loop’ here in Hong Kong. So, if the tunes of such Canto-pop stars as Eason Chan and Kay Tse aren’t quite doing it for you, then you’re probably looking for a place to go for your musical fix.

Music that’s not for the masses
Tune into White Noise

Turn on the radio, and you may find yourself out of the musical ‘loop’ here in Hong Kong. So, if the tunes of such Canto-pop stars as Eason Chan and Kay Tse aren’t quite doing it for you, then you’re probably looking for a place to go for your musical fix.

Well, look no further. At White Noise Records, an independent music store, you’ll find some of the most sought-after and hard-to-find musical offerings. For those of you with less commercial taste, there are rare and limited-edition CDs of such acts as folk singer Bon Iver and alternative British group Portishead. With genres ranging from minimal techno to indie, the array of choices is truly a music geek’s wet dream and a DJ’s source of hidden musical gems for your next set. And if you’re an old school loyalist, there’s even a wide selection of vinyl records too. (Remember what these look like?). More than just a store, White Noise also promotes non-mainstream music through local events, such as the past NOTCH Festival, which was a cultural exchange between Scandinavian and Chinese experimental musicians.

Put the canto-pop on mute, as you’re getting an education in sound today.
