About


Mervin Wong, under the alias of Theemptybluesky is a sonic alchemist best known for his explorative journeys through sound in an evocative and eclectic manner. With a curiosity for blending recorded and synthesised sound, Mervin’s full length debut album Aphelion explores the juxtaposition of musical narratives against organic textures from field recordings to produce a unique electronic sound that is highly immersive and emotive.


Mervin’s search for different modes of expression in sound began through research and practice during his studies in music, graduating from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore.


His other works include creating bespoke music and sound design for film, media, installations, as well as collaborations with performing and visual artists. Mervin also actively explores his practice in other forms including light, visuals, and design.


Mervin’s artistic outputs include designing & performing a visual set alongside contemporary musician Garth Knox for The Arts House By Candlelight series, a curation of Seed performed alongside T’ang Quartet and Open Score Project at the ArtScience Museum, designing the production of Holier Then How by TheatreWorks, scoring the music for That Which Cannot Be Divided presented by Esplanade’s Huayi Festival 2019, SRT’s production of Guards at the Taj, co- directing Voyage Festival 2018 at the YST Conservatory, as well as arranging and producing a version of Majulah Singapura for Singapore F1 Grand Prix 2018.
