Steve Hui, known as Nerve, is a multidisciplinary artist with training in contemporary classical composition and roots in the rave scene. He hacks into the existing music system by mixing art forms, crossing boundaries and experimenting with traditions. His practice transcends the boundaries between music, sound art, multimedia theatre and underground culture. His major works include the trance installation opera Somnium, the documentary opera Songs of Portrait in collaboration with Cheuk Cheung, the cinematic opera 1984, and the digital opera The Memory Palace of Matteo Ricci. He is a co-operator of experimental art organisation Twenty Alpha, a lecturer of the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts, a resident of Hong Kong Community Radio, and a fellow of Asian Cultural Council in New York. He has performed at festivals such as CTM Berlin, LUFF Lausanne, playfreely Singapore and Sónar Hong Kong.
