Gong Projekt is established in 2017. It is a community that connects musicians and composer-performers who are interested in crossover music and Chinese ethnic culture. The core members of it are Dong Zhou and Shiwen Wang, they compose, perform and improvise with different artists for each concert.

On 22.09.2018 we will have our next concert in Kulturhaus Eppendorf, Hamburg as part of China Time events. The theme will be “Ritual”, in term of using ancient Chinese ritual/ belief as metaphor to comment modern society.  For seeking for new ideas and connecting more artists, we decided to make a call for score.

  2. Each composer can submit more than one piece.
