Nerve is a Hong Kong based multidisciplinary artist whose practice mines the boundaries between contemporary music, sound art, multimedia theatr,e and underground subcultures. With a background in classical composition and 90s rave culture, Nerve explores the extremity of sound experience by mixing electroacoustic, beat, bass, fx, and rave samples into a new form of free improvisation performance. His high-speed finger triggering and knob twisting generates a harsh danceable noise that resists categorization. Nerve’s recent works include documentary opera Songs of Portrait, and cinematic opera 1984. He is active in the local and international underground scene, having performed at 15 Grams, HKCR, CTM (Berlin), LUFF (Lausanne), playfreely (Singapore), Sónar Hong Kong, amongst other DIY outdoor parties.

Drawing from introspective moments in her daily life, ASJ brings her audience on reinvigorating journeys striated with melodious compositions and organic textures. She has performed at Sónar Hong Kong, Clockenflap, OIL Club, and Berghain Säule. Her music has been played on NTS Radio, Balamii Radio, and Radar Radio.
