Sculpting ambient field recordings into dissonant pastiches informed by the synthetic framework of club influences, Flora Yin-Wong’s body of work cycles through the emotional spectrum. Informed by life experiences spanning through East Asia and beyond, her aural collages vibrate with personal, social and spiritual history—sampling temple chimes, the Chinese Yangqin stringed instrument, Cantonese pop music and pulling from her family’s history of involvement with opera. Instinctually powerful, her work touches on existential themes of death, transmission and rebirth in a way that can crawl under a listener’s skin.
Pulsating sonic watercolour palettes that synthesize natural sounds with synthetic club textures; music that prioritizes instincts over intention

Despite not feeling as if her music is particularly tied to filmic terms, Yin-Wong has performed at a Boiler Room celebrating the release of Blade Runner 2049 as well as being asked to re-score a scene from Die Hard
