LIN Zhiying (林志英), Guangzhou / Shenzhen


General information

Born in Hainan, China, works and lives in Guangzhou / Shenzhen.

Lin's epiphany came as he was exposed to the works of Japanese noise guru Merzbow (AKITA Masami), after which he started on his own compositions immediately. Some of his works during 2003 - 2004 were compiled as Selected Works 2003 – 2004 and was distributed free on the internet.

In August 2004, Lin made his debut on the Chinese scene with his composition Tokyo Fist, in which he uses sounds from Japanese cult director Shinya Tsukamoto's namesake film as the only sound source. The work was selected by Chinese video artist CAO Fei as the soundtrack for her short film Cosplayer, which was screened at the 5th Shanghai Biennale, 2004.

Lin Zhiying also joined the art project 21floor at the end of 2005.
