“At the end of 2019, I started to making music again and rediscovered my love for experimental music. Apart from listening to plenty of recorded and live music, I attended workshops, picked up soldering, and delved into studying techniques related to live electronic music and modular synthesis, all of which led to a period of intense self-study and exploration. The material here, including music, videos, drawings and texts, is a summation of things produced during this time.” Words from Song-Ming Ang
