Yau Sze Ting

Musician — Hong Kong

Describe your style in three words?
Strange/Emotion/Freedom.

What made you decide to be a singer?
Ever since I was young, I have loved singing. I participated in my first singing competition in secondary school and didn't even make the finals. At that time, the boy I was in love with told me that “Your singing makes me feel relaxed”. Since then, he became my first love. I first discovered that it was good to sing for someone I like and someone who likes me. Hopefully, in the future, more people would like my music to keep them company.

If you could be on the line up with any two bands in history?
Taiwan rock band Sunset Rollercoaster and Hong Kong's local indie band in the 1990s ....HUH!? ....HUH!? said: "The sense of accomplishment comes from playing good music itself." I think it’s exactly what they are doing.

Which subcultures have influenced you?
Local indie music. It combines classic and modern music elements, make me feel very comfortable.

Where was the most memorable show you ever played?
Once I was invited to perform at Galaxy Shisha Cafe and we were very happy that night. I did not regard myself as a guest performer, but a person who likes to sing. Coincidentally their guests also liked to hear me sing.

Tell me about your favourite performance venue in Hong Kong?
Bar. Most of the people who come to drink are trying to numb themselves with alcohol. Every song dedication is like helping them to sing what they are thinking, which is also a kind of release for them.

The first track you played on repeat?
'Running Away from Home' by Janice M. Vidal.

A song that defines the teenage you?
'Tourbillon' by Eason Chan.

One record you would keep forever?
'A Balloon's Journey' by Leslie Cheung. This is an exceptional song, the melody is unforgettable.

A song lyrics that have inspired you?
"如若全世界一天一點變壞 (If the whole world goes bad day by day),
猶幸還有你一貫爛漫姿態 (Luckily you still have your splendid attitude),
而你赤裸裸脫俗如像小孩 (And you are naked and refined like a child),
想笑就笑要嗌就嗌 (Laugh if you want to, shout if you want to)"

From 'Children Song' by Endy Chow. No matter how bad the world is, I still have "you" music.

A song you wished you had written?
I want to finish my song All to you.

Best song to turn up loud?
'A Life Written In Water' by Anita Mui.

A song people wouldn’t expect you to like?
'Worse Comes To Worst' by Yoga Lin.

The song to get you straight on the dance floor?
In fact, many songs would make me wanna dance, but I won’t get to the dance floor. I know very well that I have a terrible sense of dancing.

Best song to end an all-nighter?
'Candlelight' by Sunset Rollercoaster (ft. OHHYUK).
