Since 2006, Mark Wong (b. 1982, Singapore) has been developing and refining his own vocabulary for the kazoo, a simple musical instrument traditionally considered a novelty toy. In addition to conventional humming techniques, Wong has germinated blowing, rasping and other vocal scrawlings. Playing off the feedback purity of a no-input mixer, Mark's kazoo becomes the production centre of a certain textural beauty and nervous energy.

In each lab session, we encourage artists from different backgrounds to experiment with each other to create new work. This open platform is free to perform, to exhibit, to experiment and to collaborate. We welcome artists from all disciplines.
