The First Genre: Sacrifice and Salvation



Ghost Island: Innervision

The controversial term "Ghost Island" hints at anger and emotional alienation, reflecting the artists' insecurity and inability when confronting their survival structure. In the meantime, this work captures the possibility to become primitive, wandering and transcendent, and floats on the border between myth and reality from a viewpoint of a wandering spirit. Using the senses of beasts to travel through the post-utopia ruins constructed by desires and technologies, the artists seek for and imagine the cyber-consciousness intertwined evolved from "beasts-human-divinity." They also attempt to transform "Ghost Island" into a sci-fi fable for contemporary post-Internet society.

Innervision is the VR installation version of the Ghost Island series, which integrates dream writing, soundscape collecting, 3D scanning technology, electronic noise and digital sculpture. The artists attempt to convert chaotic urban street views and information space into a virtual landscape in the Realtime 3D Engine. The Ghost Island series spans a variety of time and space, including music albums, audiovisual performance, virtual reality installation, and online experiences to create possibilities of experiences beyond the geographical framework.

Meuko! Meuko!

Starting from sampling and collecting random and chaotic noises through environmental scenarios, interwoven emotions of tranquility and anxiety are aggregated within contemporary cyborg city to depict disorderly landscapes and humid air into experimental soundscapes. The correspondence between the emotions within sounds and the world is explored by combining deconstructed electronic music and experimental noises. Released album “Ghost Island” under Swiss label Danse Noire in 2018. Started cooperating with NAXS Corp. for live audio-visual performances and installations in 2017, and has since toured over 20 cities in Europe and Asia, including opening act at Transmediale 2020 in Berlin, Sonic Acts in Amsterdam Sónar Hong Kong, Hyperreality in Vienna, Noise Assembly at Taipei Arts Festival, and WSK in the Philippines.
