This event is over.


Exploring organic simplicity to expansive electronic sagas, Mervin Wong brings an immersive and interactive take to selections from his upcoming LP, Movement Landscapesm, set to be released on 27 October 2023.  


The composer weaves a tapestry of improvised tales and hypnotic worlds through a semi-improvised chance-based interaction where the audience is invited into a daydream of imaginations.  


Movement Landscapes is an album featuring the composer’s body of work inspired by or in collaboration with movement. Fresh from recent releases such as the eclectic Late Bloomer (2022) and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Original Theatre Soundtrack for SRT’s Shakespeare in the Park season of 2023), the approach for Movement Landscapes is a cosmic one where Mervin Wong embraces his affinity with the art of movement.

Artist Information

Mervin Wong

Mervin Wong is a performer. Raised in chambers of string, it took a moment for him to recognize the viola as his truest limb. The tectonic shift to this deeper, enduring register has shaped his foray into electronic music-making. Mournful but bereft of grief, Mervin Wong’s long-form sensibilities rouse our waterflesh. Years of forging his intention allow his process to be bright with speed. In service of resonance, every grain is burnished to the bone. A canoe made of ice. His sounds return to matter. Where footsteps span lightyears. Waves seethe and where the cosmos can glide through an albatross. Mervin Wong is a performer, violist, composer, and electronic producer. He is an artist that is deeply dedicated to the shared experience of sound.
