Mo-Men-T is a Hong Kong-based quintet, formed in 2012 as an ultra-modern jazz affair. The collaboration soon bore fruit, as each member added their unique musical influences. From this came a creative mixture of modern jazz, funk and post-rock. The result is a fresh sonic experience that is at once familiar and unpredictable. The band’s compositions are edgy and adventurous, stretching from a piano whisper to fiery fortes.
In the band’s live performances, as the music evolves from logical to free-form, patient to aggressive, the listener is exposed to the shifting gravities of improvised music. To add fuel to the fire, Mo-Men-T is not afraid to tread the avant-garde, a bold and exciting musical frontier replete with meter-less and atonal forays.
Mo-Men-T’s debut EP, “Compositions and Improvisation”, was released in 2012, and its full-length album, “Infinite Lines”, was released in 2013. The band has performed at a variety of local and international music venues, notably the Hong Kong Green Jazz Festival, the Hong Kong People’s Fringe Festival and the Taichung Jazz Festival, Taiwan.
