(Absurd Creation 編輯部)
Initially, we envisioned Fan Service to be a free space for musicians to express their musical ideas at their own will. Therefore, we insist not to edit or censor anything our trusted writers have written, given that they are not promoting discriminatory hate speech such as racist or sexist discourses.
Absurd was set out to be the music site that dedicates to any music genres under the radar, as a result, our interests of investigation lies mostly in the genres we feel they are under-represented, or have potential to be the music of the future. But only by praising, it will only generate repetition, maybe even a wrong kind of repetition. Thus we also feel that the Hong Kong independent music scene needs a critical voice, that can push the boundary of the scene outward, through voicing criticisms that are constructive and meaningful. We do not want to regress to another PR outlets of local labels, as a fan of music, we would only speak in all honestly of what we think about creations made by artists.
Absurd on the one hand, is missioned to be as analytical and critical as possible. But Fan service, on the other hand, is set out to be on the equal footing to any other people i.e. when a random person can express their music preference freely, we feel that musician, as an individual human being, can also have the freedom to do so as well.
We therefore standby Jabin 100% . If any readers wish to express their opinion, you can write to us by any means, we will post your opinions too unedited.
