Since its formation in 2016, Sea Island & Ferry has continued to create Hong Kong’s own brand of instrumental music as a "neo-chamber ensemble". The group’s location in this culturally diverse city has enabled its members to encounter the very themes that inspired its work, as heard in the two albums released to-date.
Sea Island & Ferry played extensively in Hong Kong, including at such events as THE WEEKEND presented by wow and flutter and Freespace Happening at the West Kowloon Cultural District. The group released its first album Crossings in January 2018, and held its first crowdfunded multi-media performance in April, titled Crossings - Music X Films, collaborating with director 6 @ RubberBand on a series of short films inspired by music in the album. Both shows were sold out and warmly received by the audience.
In the same year, Sea Island & Ferry started venturing out of their home base, first with their Crossings IN TAIWAN tour in Taipei, Taichung and Tainan. The group played in the Sakurazaka Asylum festival in Okinawa, Japan, as well as Macau in 2019.
In May 2020, Sea Island & Ferry released their second new album titled Telescope, which was also the ensemble’s first-ever vinyl LP release. Despite COVID-19 and distancing measures, the ensemble completed a series of online and offline performances to promote the album.
On the eve of its 5th anniversary, Sea Island & Ferry renewed the group’s line up (now known as the Phase 3). Founding members Arnold Fang (Piano) and Tim Tong (Cello) were joined by new members Kenneth Li (Violin) and Gladys Wong (Clarinet). The introduction of new instruments allows the ensemble to explore new horizons in its creations.
