about

This compilation is an attempt to cover a varied range of noise and experimental music from South East Asia. Limited to just over one hour, the CD format does not allow us to fully cover the richness of the scene. However, we did our best to include a diverse group of artists. We have selected female and male artists, DIY and academically trained musicians, and newcomers and established artists.

With exclusive tracks from: Cheryl Ong & Vivian Wang (Singapore); Menstrual Synthdrone (Indonesia); Sodadosa (Indonesia); Nguyễn Hong Giang (Vietnam); Dharma (Singapore); Sound Awakener (Vietnam); Bergegas Mati (Indonesia); GAMNAD737 (Thailand); Goh Lee Kwang (Malaysia); Yandsen (Malaysia); Teresa Barrozo (The Philippines); Musica Htet (Myanmar).

Check the track info for a biography of each artist.

If for some valid reasons you cannot afford to buy this release, you can send a message and explain why and I might send you a download code.

This compilation is a companion of the book Not Your World Music.
Softcover and (free) PDF versions are available (contact us if you want the free PDF).
