Seed is a performative installation involving the juxtaposition of sonic worlds, both analog and digital as Theemptybluesky (Mervin Wong) explores a uniquely different approach to the craft of sonic art and performance.
The first iteration of Seed was premiered live at the ArtScience Museum on 21 March 2019 as part of a collaboration between T’ang Quartet, Open Score Project, and Theemptybluesky for the museum’s exhibition, Minimalism: Space. Light. Object. Using a choreographic approach to sound, Mervin draws inspiration from various genres of performative practices to work with the musicians (Leslie & Lionel Tan from the T’ang Quartet Syafiqah ‘Adha, Gildon Choo, Rozie Hoong & Wang Jin from Open Score Project).
Since then, Mervin is embarking on the next phase of exploration to develop the work further as one that investigates the role of the composer or the creator, the performer and the viewer/audience.
