Beyond

 

Reveries is a set of specially crafted music by Theemptybluesky. A story told and explored through sound, delve into this journey to seek out the resonance and dissonance of the mind with performers Mervin Wong and Jingyun Ng.

Mervin is a multidisciplinary artist who investigates and embraces a range of art forms into his works. A sonic alchemist who creates music and sculpts sound, Mervin’s past works include producing/composing bespoke music for contemporary dance: Odyssey Dance Theatre Ltd as well as international dance artists specializing in dance improvisation. Mervin also actively composes for installations, theatre, and media. His foray into the art of sound does not stop at its crafting. Mervin is also a musician who actively performs in the fields of classical, experimental, and electronica under the alias Theemptybluesky.

Singaporean-Chinese soprano Ng Jingyun is currently pursuing a Bachelor of Music (Vocal Performance) degree under the tutelage of Professor Alan Bennett. In 2013, she graduated from School of the Arts, Singapore (SOTA) with an International Baccalaureate Diploma, where she studied with Thomas Markus Manhart and Ralph McDonald.

Jingyun is a keen collaborator on cross-disciplinary projects, and has been featured in several Singaporean premiere works of various genres, including previous collaborations with Mervin Wong for contemporary dance. Jingyun has also participated in the 2016 NAIP (New Audiences and Innovative Practices) programme in Reichenau, Austria.
