Fen (Far East Network) – 4.2.10

Wizard noise unit FEN (Far East Network) favour the exploration of texture and timbre over melody and harmony. Whilst rarely forming any traditional rhythmic structure, the trio find temporal freedom in clockwork, vibration and distortion, and give out a humming electrical pulse with impossibly natural warmth.

Far East Network

FEN (Far East Network) is a group project made up of musicians from Singapore, Japan, China, and Korea who play improvised music. It was first started on the suggestion of globally renowned musician Otomo Yoshihide. Each member is an artist who works individually on the experimental music scene in his respective country. They have been supporting each other's activities by organizing concerts in their own countries, and this relationship became the motivation to form FEN. Currently formed of Otomo Yoshihide, Yan Jun, Yuen Chee Wai & Ryu Hankil.
