Lam Lai has been expanding the meaning and properties of performance by employing various elements of theatre through working on the concept of music, exploring a place where different concepts of listening experience can coexist and advance towards a balance with other art forms. Her activity as a composer is not limited to instrumental music, but it is also present in her multidisciplinary works which predominantly use electronic sounds and performative elements. She collaborates with theatre directors, choreographers, actors and visual artists, exploring among the indoor, outdoor and virtual performance spaces. Participated art festivals include the Munich Biennale, Stuttgart Die Irritierte Stadt, Musica Nova Helsinki, Iceland Cycle Music and Art Festival, Hong Kong New Vision Arts Festival and Sonic Anchor.
She also works as an independent producer and curator, with recent productions including a global art streaming event 02022020.space on the palindrome date 2nd of February 2020, and a sound-based platform Sonic Ecology Digital Conference promoting environmental awareness and engagement in Hong Kong.
