About Meuko! Meuko!
Meuko! Meuko! is an experimental music producer and performer, who formerly collaborated with Goodbye Nao member. She started performing solo in 2015 and then in 2017 under the monocle Meuko! Meuko! with A/V sets created in collaboration with Taipei Based Visual & Installation group 'Naxs corp.' Each performance contains improvisation and elements of new works, collecting from various different objects, strange sounds and noises. Components of local experimental beats and a wide gamut of electronic music draw from Taiwan’s irregular view / architectures and buildings, muggy, emissions-filled air, and hectic streetscapes, while Mandarin Chinese and Japanese influences marry intricate beats and whispering lyrics. All these tiny elements serve as pondering points on the darkness that underpins the most intense emotions of the city’s aggregations.
