Wun Thong

Wun Thong is a poet and accomplished BS artist who creates experimental music using elements of chance and improvisation.

Wun Thong captivates his audience with his visual aesthetic, mystical balls and exotic bird calls. His table of goodies is covered with objects; some old, some new and some discarded. The main object of focus is anĀ  ornament from the 1960’s, the Atomic Spray. Transformed into an instrument, it is bowed and tapped, creating clangs, screams and ambient drones. The Atomic lends to the performance giving it an almost surreal and alchemical atmosphere, as Wun Thong stirs up long forgotten stories of the past. Particularly those stories from an often buried history of the early Chinese on the Australian goldfields.
