Lim Giong

Lim Giong (Chinese: 林強; pinyin: Lín Qiáng; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Lîm Kiông; also known as Lin Chiang, born 7 June 1964 in Changhua, Taiwan) is a musician, artist, DJ, composer, songwriter, music producer, music director and also an actor. Now, he is a leading figure on the Taiwanese experimental electronic music scene. His musical career began with the release of his 1st album, "Marching Forward" in 1990. In his early days, he gave rousing performances of folk-pop music in Taiwan (mainly sung in Taiwanese Hokkien) such as "A Soundless Place" from the Dust of Angels soundtrack. He was associated with the genre known as New Taiwanese Song. Then, from his 3rd album "Entertainment World" recorded in England in 1993, his compositions become increasingly infused with electronic music, evolving even from drum and bass, break beat, ambient and electronica, to more experimental and freestyle work. He introduces Taiwanese notes into pop-rock culture, and weaves complex musical fabrics. In his works, the tradition meets the modernity, which creates the world of his own.
