Raised in chambers of string, Mervin Wong took a moment to recognise the viola as his truest limb. The tectonic shift to this deeper, more enduring register has shaped his foray into electronic music-making. In service of resonance, every grain is burnished to the bone. His sounds return to matter, where footsteps span light years. Mervin Wong is a performer, violist, composer, and electronic producer. He is an artist deeply dedicated to the shared experience of sound.

SUBMARINE (EXTENDED)

Year of Release: 2022
Whereby Mervin Wong’s ongoing evolution continues: Taken off from a 2021 EP Entity (released under an earlier moniker Planeswalker), the track ‘Submarine’ blooms into a glorious existential treatise, less otherworldly and more socio-anthropological now. With more than a minute and a half added in this remix (which soundtracks a music video featuring lissom dance moves of XUE, Kansh and Josh Tirados Suarez), this features wave after wave of fluttery, jerky beats, as if heralding the next stage of transformation. These stir the relatively calm sea of drones. Something, or someone, is being birthed, and we are all holding our breath.

AKASHA

Year of Release: 2022
Fascinated by the Sanskrit word ‘Akasha’ (or ‘ether’), Mervin Wong creates sensitively layered soundscapes which respond to his sensory perceptions of his surroundings. This EP was originally presented as a live listening experience and borne out of a collaboration with multidisciplinary artists Joshua Tirados Suarez and Sarah Isabelle Tan who work with solid volumes and fluid fabrics.

Entity

Year of Release: 2021
Applying narratives to soundscapes is top of mind for Mervin Wong. In his sophomore EP, he captains a vessel that explores uncharted frontiers. Along the way, the listener encounters the droning chasms of ‘Submarine’, the climatic dystopia of Entity, the spacey oasis of ‘First Bloom’ and the tender fields of ‘Return’, all of which culminate in signature strings.

Perihelion

Year of Release: 2020
Taking the timbre of classical strings and moulding it into the sound of the future, the electronic producer forges a new equation in this debut EP. The result is a neo-classical concoction, with ethereal violins floating atop an austere foundation of mechanical synths and pulsating beats.

Solis

Year of Release: 2020
Reflecting the shimmering nature of a bright star, the single, ‘Solis’, marks the rise of the ambient producer. Mesmeric and otherworldly, the cinematic instrumental presents a nebula of noises untold, pulling in layers of clustered strings, morose synth pads, clashing percussions and cherubic vocals.
