ABOUT THE PERFORMERS:
AYAM FARED: “Binatang separa orang, perempuan separa jantan.”
MIYI has just been starting to try experimenting with the human voice.
Tan Jen Wei is one of the familiar name in Kuala Lumpur music scene when it comes to the Double Bass. He started out by picking up the double bass from his high school’s Chinese traditional music orchestra, and later studied in UCSI University as a Music Composition Major. Working as a performing musician for many years, he does not hesitate to explore different variety of sounds in the world of music.
IAN HAN grew up in Kuala Lumpur and discovered drums and his passion for music at the age of 15 and havent stop ever since. Having experience of more than 10 years behind the kit and a hardworking attitude, Ian has been gigging around KL constantly. Ian have played in various music festivals around the world including Beastie Rock Fest in Taiwan, Obscene Extreme in Czech and many shows around europe, taiwan, singapore and indonesia. Ian has also won the roland Vdrum competition In 2011. Ian is a versatile drummer and have learned many styles and grooves under various famous and acomplished musicians in KL.
FAREZ JINNAH played the bass for E, Amid the Mimic and since its inception, plays with The Maharajah Commission. Classically trained for 2 years before learning there was more to life than institution, he now does as he pleases, which includes stealing your girlfriend when you leave to use the washroom and tricking up his bass. All that has been learnt, unlearnt. All that is known, unknown. All that is heard, unheard. Namaste!
RONNIE KHOO does not think of himself as a musician. He regards himself an explorer of the medium of music and sound, to varying degrees of artistic success, mass acceptance and infamy. He thinks his music sounds like freshly brewed tea. People who have only known him recently might have no idea what he ever accomplished, which is fine. Also, he prefers if someone else wrote his bio.
YONG YANDSEN is an improvised saxophonist. He has played at the Kuala Lumpur Contemporary Music Festival, Mosaic Festival Singapore, Choppa Eclectic Improvised Music Festival, Turn Around Free Jazz & Improvisation Festival amongst others. Yandsen, together with Darren Moore and Brian O’Reily, form an improvised trio called Game of Patience. They have toured to Japan, Singapore, Sri Lanka and Thailand. They recently release their debut album “Trial and Error” on Herbal International label in Malaysia.
