About

The creative partnership of Chinese/Australian avant-garde composer Mindy Meng Wang 王萌 and her Melbourne-based contemporary Tim Shiel is something truly special. Oscillating from breakbeat to minimal house influences and laid-back dub and pop sounds, their unique sound is underpinned throughout by the guzheng, an acoustic instrument almost two metres long and thousands of years old. It is a hymn to a place where tradition is forced to adapt with changing values and different cultures.

Both artists are impressive in their own field – Mindy with a notable performing and recording schedule alongside artists such as The Gorillaz, Regurgitator, Sui Zhen and Total Control’s Mikey Young, and Tim Shiel with his own self titled electronic project as well as leading the ‘Spirit Level’ independent label. However, their recent collaboration Nervous Energy 一 触即发 fuses together Shiel’s sounds and Wang’s playing in a way that is so distinct that it creates a sonic world of its own.
