Check out this monthly performance series in Berkeley, CA, sponsored by RAMA, which features a variety of Asian American artists and performers. And be sure to catch Taiwanese American musician Jack Tung who creates some very inspired soundtracks!
Jack Tung’s songs are precisely composed instrumentals performed by Jack alone in real-time on an electric guitar, a drum machine, synthesizers, and a sampler. His moody aesthetic is equally informed by the exhilarating and harsh thrash of his youth in the Long Island hardcore scene, and by the atmospheric film soundtracks absorbed as a lifelong cinephile. In live performance, Jack uses no pre-recorded parts and no backing tracks, save for the spare drum machine patterns which propel his arrangements. His precise execution and control of multiple layers of sound is a feat to witness.
Other performers that evening include Ken Pulido and Like Me’s.
