MEIZHIYONG


Mei Zhiyong is one of the most active Harsh Noise artists in China. He creates unique noise effects by making a large number of noise generators and modifying industrial instruments. His noise works are known for their exaggerated, dangerous, and extreme characteristics. His live performances are full of physical language and tense atmosphere, bringing audiences a shocking audio-visual experience.

Since 2007, Mei Zhiyong has performed in more than 400 shows in mainland China, Japan, neighboring countries, Europe, and other countries, and has released over 40 solo albums and collaborative albums with different artists. He is the founder of the earliest tape label in China, Fuzztape, and initiated China’s largest noise art festival, A Bunch of Noise, in 2023, planning to hold it every year. He is also one of the most active noise event organizers in China, organizing China tours for experimental noise art festivals in multiple countries.

In addition to exploring noise creation, Mei Zhiyong attempts to explore the relationship between life and death and the relationship between noise and nature. His works express the pursuit of vitality and energy, and his noise works challenge traditional art as an extreme, unconventional, and avant-garde art form aimed at exploring and expressing the diversity and complexity of the world. As a mechanical engineer, he also runs a machine factory specializing in producing industrial equipment. He uses the machinery and some special instruments in the factory to initiate a project called “fuzzbox”, inviting other artists to reside in his factory and explore the fusion of industrial production and noise art through experimentation.

梅志勇是中国最活跃的粗噪音(harsh noise)表演者之一。他利用各种机械零件、信号发生器和工业仪器来制造噪音,其作品以夸张、危险和极端为特点,现场表演带有身体语言及紧张氛围视听体验。

自2007年以来,梅志勇在中国、日本、欧洲和其他国家的演出已经超过400场,发行了40多张个人专辑及与不同艺术家合作的专辑。他是中国最早的噪音磁带厂牌Fuzztape的创始人,也是中国活跃的噪音活动组织者,策划并组织了中国实验噪音在海外不同国家的多场巡演。他在2023年主办了噪音音乐节“一把噪音”,并计划每年举办一次。

除了噪音创作外,梅志勇还试图探索生与死、噪音与自然的关系。他的作品表达了对生命力和能量的追寻,以一种极端、非传统和先锋的艺术形式挑战了主流艺术,来探寻艺术的边界及复杂性。他同时还是一名机械设计工程师,主业经营一家生产工业设备的食品机械厂。他利用工厂里的机器及一些特殊仪器,发起一个名为 “fuzzbox “的项目,尝试来探索工业生产与噪音艺术相融合的可能性。
