Biography: Zai Tang

Zai Tang situates his creative practise somewhere in between the paths of music, art and philosophy. The thrust of his recent projects focus on the evolving relationship between sound and space, in both real and imagined environments. His work investigates how developing a greater awareness of sound can contribute to more dynamic states of being and enrich our experience of place.

He applies a multidisciplinary approach to art making, adapting to whatever means best suits his ideas; whether experimenting with turntable and vinyl records in a live setting, creating immersive site-specific installations or sound composition for film and theatre. Zai studied BA Creative Music Technology at Bath Spa University, and completed his post-graduate in Digital Arts at Camberwell College of Arts. Since 2006 Zai has been exhibiting work and performing in Singapore, London and most notably Venice; collaborating with Tang Da Wu in developing a multimedia sculptural installation at the Singapore Pavilion for the 52nd Venice Biennale (2007).
