Toolbox Percussion, as a creative incubator, works to make new music happen by commissioning, collaborating, professional training, performing, recording and touring contemporary performances. Believe in the beautiful concerted efforts of every young talent we involve. Toolbox Percussion continues to empower the audience to discover versatility in daily soundscapes by anchoring our work closely to the here and now of Hong Kong. 

Over the past seasons, Toolbox Percussion toured to Asia Culture Center at Gwangju in South Korea and made its US debut at the San Francisco International Arts Festival.

Toolbox Percussion also curated Toolbox International Creative Academy in 2019. The festival has reached its 5th Edition in 2023 and collaborated with numerous industrial veterans including GRAMMY Award winners.

Co-hosted with the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco in 2019, works of Toolbox Percussion were showcased in an exhibition titled “A Double Listen” for the first time in the United States. This sound-based exhibition became an ongoing project as a core production series, a scalable rerun was held at H Queen’s in June 2021, a site-specific edition for ArtisTree in August 2022. A sound-based art exhibition, “A DOUBLE LISTEN: Yama no Oto” was toured to Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale in Summer 2023.
