Ni Zheng

ni zheng (b. 1997, cn) is a sound artist and composer of electroacoustic music, creating sonic rituals that muse on the grotesque and abjection of the flesh, the erotic and poetics of the body. her practice calls for a descent into untamed territory, dwelling in and listening intently to the swampy pool of undead, uncivilized feelings and emotions she considers her reserve, and exorcising raw impulses, negativity, rage, messiness as a tactic against all forms of domestication.

ni is devoted to celebrating and catalyzing mystical state of ecstatic communication with both fellow humans and non-humans, she surrenders herself unconditionally to deviant and altered states of knowledge — intimate, sensual, relational, and immanent — in encounters with the unknown, the other, the sacred and occulted realm of nature and the land she inhabits.

her medium of communication includes vocal performance that is visceral, primal, and atavistic, as well as sounds gathered through field recordings during visits to desolate and ravished locations, and a fusion of electronic and acoustic instruments.

she currently lives in san diego, california attending a phd program in music composition at UC San Diego.
