NetherSphere pres. Tzusing
We invite you to enter the NetherSphere, a realm where everything is nothing and nothing is everything. Through experimental, percussive / drum leaning club sounds, NetherSphere (re)imagines a night where folks can gather beyond the bounds of reality. NetherSphere is a space for and by the diaspora brought to you by 非 Fei and 黑芝麻 Hei Zhi Ma 💞
Born in Malaysia, Tzusing spent his formative years in Singapore and the Taiwanese manufacturing centre of Taichung, studied in Chicago, and is currently based between Shanghai and Taipei. His music exists in this condition of dislocation, forged at the complicated intersection of personal, social, and national identity.
As a DJ, Tzusing’s sets mix streamlined techno, industrial electronics, non-western dance music, and contemporary club music. He adds to this a sincere belief in the redemptive power of pop music, ready to drop sophisticated, classic Asian pop into the middle of club sets. In his own productions Tzusing recombines these influences into aggressive, cathartic music, inflected with off-kilter half step rhythms, strange harmonic textures, and thick, unnaturally resonant drums. If glittering tuned percussion, reed instrument-like synthesisers, and the music’s imagery might evoke a sense of “Chinese-ness,” it is not to point to the site of “authentic culture,” but to ask what these signifiers mean and who they belong to, as diasporas mutate beyond national borders. Seeking fun and subversion in equal parts, Tzusing’s music circles around themes of power, obsession, sexuality, identity and its obliteration.
