AUSSIE-BORN SINGAPORE THEREMINIST/SYNTH PLAYER’S NEW SINGLE JEUNE ET ANIMÉE EXPRESSLY WRITTEN FOR THE THEREMIN
Shueh-li Ong has released her new single “Jeune et Animée” written expressly for the theremin in Rondo form aka ABACA but with a ProgRock twist!
“Jeune et Animée” has already been road-tested during a recent mini tour, as Shueh-li developed the style of playing she imagined would befit the recording.
Two of her best mates are featured on the track, John A Martinez of Xenovibes U.S.A. (on drums), and Michael Spicer of Electric Muse Singapore (on piccolo).
Jeune et Animée, showcases once again Shueh-li’s method of writing and producing in-studio, where she works with sound design/synthesis as building blocks, experimenting with performance nuances/techniques on theremin and synth, programming, notating and tracking.
Though there are just a few representations in recorded music that break the mold, “In my own way, I wanted to alter the stereotypical notion of the theremin having a wimpy vibrato-exaggerated voice. It can be emotional and, gutsy!”
“Jeune et Animée” is just one of several upcoming releases, displaying a commitment to exploring new ways to represent the theremin in performance, while digging into her classical roots to use as bone structure for contemporary composition.
“Jeune et Animée” is downloadable from shuehli.com/store
It will be available in iTunes, Spotify, Amazon and other major distros by 27th October.
