16: Wilson Tsang


Wilson Tsang compares his music to that of a cetacean. “Whale song is something we hear… and something we can’t describe or understand,” he says. “So I use that term as a parallel to express that you can’t really define music, [you can’t compare] what you hear to words or languages – it’s a different kind of language.”

The pianist and electronica artist is talking about his new album, aptly named Whale Song, to be released in the middle of November. It’s a mood-based work of improvised piano and ambient electronic that springs from Tsang’s admirable creative well of ideas. The album, he says, is like a soundtrack for a film – just without the film. “You can imagine a theme behind it.”

In fact, most of Wilson’s work, which can be loosely defined as experimental, is mood-inspired rather than pre-mediated. “I have a thought about the content that I’m going to play, and then I just play around,” he says of his creative methods. That approach has produced Stuck in Traffic (2002) – a colourful exploration of the city’s texture through folk, alternative rock, jazz and electronica – and Little Cold Red (2005), which carries a deeper, darker theme that explores the essence of dream, memory, and desire.

Tsang has also worked on visual exhibitions, animation, and stage plays, making him one of our most accomplished, and inspired, experimental musicians. Keep an eye out for more.

Recommended listening: Whale Song (2008), available at Zoo Records, Mackie Study, Delay No Mall, and Kubric as of mid-November.

Wilson Tsang will perform at Time Out’s free Top 20 Showcase at Backstage on Wednesday, October 22.

  • Cheap Asics Alton Shoes Three eye popping colorways of Asics running shoes will launch this week in select Foot Locker stores. The three models – the GT 2170, the Gel-Kinsei 4, and the Gel-Noosa Tri 7 – are all part of the Asics Colors That Run pack. Dominated by colors like electric blue, pop yellow, tropic green, mosaic, and noosa glow one can tell these shoes will bring out the color in your running wardrobe before you even see the shoes. On top of the obvious push that Asics is making towards extreme color in their running shoes, their technology is equally impressive. Cheap Asics Corrido Shoes The Kinsei, a staple in Asics running line, has been reduced to 11.9 ounces. And, for those that like to mix it up, the Kinsei has different colorways on the left and right shoes. The Noosa is one of the most breathable shoes on the market, running or not. The GT 2170 has long been known for its stability. All three shoes have Asics’ signature Gel on the midsole for maximum comfort. Photos, prices, and links to buy on Footlocker.com are all below. Cheap Asics Gel Kayano 17 Shoes The DS Trainer has long enjoyed a strong following among dedicated runners. A slimmed down trainer combining lightweight performance with a touch of stability, this classic lineage now enters its 18th rendition and shows no sign of slowing down.
