Chronus Art Center (CAC) is pleased to present an afternoon event consist of a screening of experimental film Sonic Rituals created by sound artist Mei Zhiyong, and a sound performance by Mei Zhiyong and The Mustangs in Social Modulatorwe.
The film Sonic Rituals is based on the film Undead Cycle which has been selected for the 11th CIFF ‘s top ten experimental short films. To the artist, noise is the form to break all the rules, and only by retreating into void will people truly be free from contradiction between voice and body, as well as body and mind. As for the images, it has various styles and can also go beyond logic, or even destroy logic.
