‘Metamorphose’ by Alan McLean & Goh Lee Kwang
Alan McLean and Goh Lee Kwang will perform a short extract from a work in progress ‘Metamorphose’ for electric guitar and sound mixer.
Goh Lee Kwang grew up in Penang and studied visual art at the Malaysian Institute of Art in Kuala Lumpur. His sound work includes sample-based pieces and installations. He adopted the stereo DJ mixer with feedback loop as his main instrument in 2004 and performed extensively across western Europe. His awards and honors include the Akademie Schloss Solitude Fellowship, Klangraum Fellowship, and K?ºnstlerh?§user Worpswede Fellowship 2008.
Alan McLean studied Philosophy in his native Scotland and started playing electric guitar two years ago. On this occasion, the duo use visual art as a focus for their sound work and as a source of compositional structure. The music takes its name from a print by the Dutch graphic artist M. C. Escher. Part devised, part improvisation, it exploits the sound possibilities of electronic feedback and simple guitar pedals.
Silent Kheat plays electronic music.
