With a curiosity for blending recorded and synthesised sound, Planeswalker is an experienced electronic producer and sound artist. Eclectic and ambitious, his artistic project combines sound, art, design and performance - making up explorative live sets that are highly immersive and emotive for the audience.
Planeswalker is the second project by Mervin Wong. Originally trained in classical music, his current electronic venture mixes these instruments (viola, electric violin, recorded sounds) to form an uncanny, stirring and dramatic style. Prior to the Planeswalker debut, the artist has performed at Esplanade (Singapore), ArtScience Museum (Singapore), KLEX (Kuala Lumpur), Reykjavík (Iceland), Busan (South Korea), Sienna (Italy), Natal (Brazil).
About Zul Mahmod
Zulkifle Mahmod (ZUL) is one of Singapore's leading sound artists and has been at the forefront of a generation of sound-media artists in Singapore's contemporary art development. ZUL has cut a reputation for integrating 3-D forms with 'sound constructions' and 'soundscapes', often crossing genres and collaborating with other artists.
ZUL represented Singapore with a Sound Art Performance at the Ogaki Biennale in 2006, and was Singapore's first sound artist with a full-on sound sculpture at the Singapore Pavilion of the 52nd Venice Biennale 2007. ZUL has exhibited in Singapore, Thailand, Germany, Japan, Vietnam, Italy, Moscow, China, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Norway and Finland. He was part of a creative talents traveling showcase in Beijing, London, New York and Singapore for Singapore Inside Out. His notable initiatives include an industrial-sound inspired soundtrack in conjunction with an Antoni Tapies exhibition at the Singapore Art Museum and winning Singapore Straits Time Life! Theatre Award 2010 for Best Sound Design (RPM by Kafai/Theatreworks).
weish is a versatile artist whose work spans diverse genres, from her signature live looping solo performances to haunting trip-hop with .gif, and the more progressive and experimental sub:shaman. Her work has taken her around the globe -- from Sundance Film Festival in Utah to the Golden Melody Awards in Taipei. She has also been active as a multidisciplinary artist, collaborating with poets, filmmakers, theatre groups and visual artists to make new, boundary-pushing work.
