Semi Leung

‘Semi’ is a Japanese name, it is different from the English meaning. The meaning of ‘Semi’ is the same as her Chinese name ‘Sim’ and that both these words mean ‘cicada’.

Semi has loved music since she was small. She was a member of a Chinese orchestra for 10 years. She has loved Japanese music since secondary school, and loves many bands and many genres from these school days. Semi is interested in many instruments like acoustic & electric guitar, flute, drums, piano etc. She can play all of them but is not proficient in any of them.. She is studying Asian and International Studies, but she doesn’t want to develop her career in this aspect.

Semi believes that people should have meaningful lives rather than only be concerned about material things. She thinks that it is so happy and lucky to have a dream in one’s life time. Although some others may not find their dream in their life time, they can still have a meaningful life. Semi discovered The Underground one night when she was confusing herself on the ways that she could achieve her dream. She immediately applied to be an intern, and found a chance to make her dream come true. Besides lending a hand in the local music area whenever and however she can, she also wants to make more friends who share her love of music and who love to play music through The Underground. Semi wants to know more about music and band culture, and her end goal is to finally to become a performing Hong Kong musician.

Semi這個名字是一個日文,意思與她的中文名字「嬋」一樣,所以請不要以英文意思去解讀她的名字。

Semi從小喜歡音樂,在中樂團演出約十年。她在中學時期開始留意日本音樂,近年喜歡上樂隊和不同類型的獨立及另類音樂。Semi對很多樂器都感到興趣,而且都會學識一點點,例如木結他、電結他、銀笛、爵士鼓、鋼琴等等,但無一種精通。Semi現正在大學修讀亞洲及國際研究,但完全無興趣在這方面發展。

Semi認為人應該要生「活」多於生「存」,要重視意義多於物質。她認為有夢想的人生非常幸福和幸運。雖然世上有很多人未能在人生中找到自己的夢想,但每個人都可以令自己的生命有意義。Semi在某一晚對於自己的夢想感到迷茫時無意中發現The Underground便立即申請為實習生,然後在The Underground中看見實現自己夢想的機會。她希望在The Underground認識更多喜歡和做獨立音樂的朋友,並希望認識更多音樂型態和樂隊文化,為本地獨立音樂出一分力。
