#450. Independent sound art, radiophonic projects and other audio non-visual misunderstandings and findings.
1. New Poem by That Travis. (Resonance)
Currently based in London, for Radia singer-songwriter That Travis revisited their work “New Poem.” Originally released in 2021, the EP dived into the spaciousness within their imagination through songwriting and weaving woodwinds with voice. Experiencing lockdown at the time, they lived through solitude with one eye open; while the other one was reserved, longing for intimacy. That Travis is originally from Hong Kong, with a background of a colonised education and indigenous Hong Kong traditions. While the two worlds fight for presentation within their work, they exhibit an organic mixture of all influences through sonic expressions, lyrics and visual aids.
