  • About the Conversation

    33EMYBW is a solo project initiated by 33, bass player of Shanghai-based electronic music group Duck Fight Goose. As a fixture of the city’s dynamic independent music scene, 33’s sensual music is described as “evoking arthropod moves” in an ethereal and rhythmic sound ritual. In the meantime, she builds collages by piling up her selfies, arthropods and even alien creatures together. When these seemingly irrelevant elements are combined together, an avant-garde visual language comes into being, brining audience a somewhat absurd and yet penetrating sensual experience. 

    33’s unique vision could be perceived in her solo album Golem. In Hebrew folklore, a golem is a clay creature that has been magically brought to life. The word in Hebrew means something incomplete or unfinished, and could be imbued with soul. Every song included in this album represents a mythological story, which, in a sense, makes the album an audio instruction of “golem”. In the music video of Golem, a weird creature with two black pigtails on the head rhythmically releases a “mechanical sense of beauty”. According to 33, it is a “spiritual being with the awareness of self-reproduction” and grows into an extremely absurd composite of magic. Her perception of the world runs through the album and at the core of the seemingly bizarre and surrealistic music and visual experiment is 33’s investigation into the ego and the soul under the futuristic background of science and technology.
