Meuko! Meuko!
Ghost Island


Experimental music producer and performer Meuko! Meuko! inherits her irregular energy from Taipei’s muggy streets that motivate her samples and synthesiser notes. In a live performance at Sonic Acts, visuals by VR-specialists NAXS corp will capture the claustrophobic EP Ghost Island (Danse Noir, 2018), Meuko! Meuko!’s voice and traditional instrumentation rising through the grate towards something more airy, fantastical and clubby.

Enter the immersive space created by Taipei-based experimental electronic music producer Meuko! Meuko! and new media art group NAXS Corp, and dive into the mythical world of 鬼島Ghost Island. Their 3D-scanned streetscapes, temples and childhood homes bring the moist atmosphere of Taiwan to the virtual world of a cyber-mythical wonderland. As music traverses the antiutopian ruins of Ghost Island and Cyber-Dreamscape, you may find that this is not a fantasy or a fable, but the mythological reality in which we all live.

Taipei-based artist Meuko! Meuko! is an experimental music producer and performer. Formerly a collaborator with a member of Goodbye Nao, she started performing solo in 2015, moving into audiovisual sets with visuals and installation by NAXS corp. Each performance combines improvisation with noise, clubbing and field recordings in ritualistic performances with sources tracing back to Taiwan’s spiritual landscape. Between Taoist gods and Buddhist ceremonies, the work evokes a cityscape with tropical humidity, its greenery enveloping the decaying concrete city blocks.
