In the second installment of Music in Exile, a series aimed at exploring collaboration between the enormous range of artists that call Melbourne home, Mindy Meng Wang and Sui Zhen will come together for a unique collaborative and semi-improvised performance incorporating Guzheng, voice and electronics. The performance will explore different ideas of place and home; our place in a rapidly shrinking world where cultures shift and change at an increased speed and intensity. Presented by local independent label Bedroom Suck Records, this series has been inspired by the true diversity to be found in a city like Melbourne and aims to provide a platform for listeners to explore some of the many stories this city has to offer.
Mindy Meng Wang is a versatile Chinese/Australian musician, teacher and composer. Her cross-cultural life and professional experience create her unique style, which has been influenced by Chinese classical and western contemporary music. Sui Zhen is the alias of Melbourne-based artist Becky Sui Zhen. After EPs Female Basic and Body Reset, she released the dream-beat world of Secretly Susan in 2015.
