This book launch features composer Phoon Yu's interpretation of Felix's poetry as a musical dreamscape consisting of short lyrical arias and brief piano interludes. Both voice (Reuben Lai) and piano (Jonathan Shin) will contribute individually and together in realising Felix's vision musically. 


There will be a book signing after the performance.
