This essay is to analyze the experience of audience as well as the band member in the culture of band activities. I was working with a Hong Kong band Chochukmo as a videographer doing documentary on them for three years. Being a fans, an audience of their show, a friend of them and a witness of their music production and performance, I am trying to portray their activities and the cultural meaning and construction behind. I will firstly talk about the publicness of the band and how their music piece is experienced and consumed. In the second part, I will go through their live gig experience and some of the songs decoded by the audience. Lastly, we will look at the band as celebrity and the community formed surrounding it.
