嚴瑞芳 (YIM Sui Fong)

One of the invited contributors for the 2020 AICAHK website is Hong Kong artist Yim Sui Fong. She explains her contribution, Spring Appetite, a musical composition:
This song is a record of our baby's feeding during the first month after her birth. I have calculated her feeding by applying the numbered musical notation (do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, ti) in two ways:
1/ Feeding with a bottle (either pumped milk or milk powder) is measured by volume. 5ml is a sharp, marked as #
2/ Breastfeeding, which is measured in time only. There are only 6 periods of time.
I have mapped these intense feeding times and have traced the baby's feeding cycle (but obviously, everyday is a new pattern) in this song. Also, I realised that singing all my complaints accompanied with the baby''s musical toys brought great satisfaction for me as a Mum, even if my improvised lyrics were out of tune! This song marks my confinement during February 2020 and is dedicated to our daughter, Tung Yik Chi.
