2015 Volt In Music

"VIM is a electronic music duo based in Hong Kong. . They invert voltage into music, through digitizing their voice and make use of strange musical devices, they try out making new and audible elements in electronic music."




Volt in Music certainly like to push the boundaries. The electronic duo of Honhim and K create their own instruments, wear digitalised eyewear during their (rare) live performances, combine their music with swirly trippy visuals, and the artwork for their soon-to-be-released 12” EP doesn’t merely incorporate painting or graphic design, or a fancy hologram, but rather a futuristic style of 3D head scanning. It’s all part and parcel of their vision to “convert voltage into music”. “I like exploring some new possibilities in music. I want to make our own instruments, new sounds and explore stage setup,” says Honhim, the male half of the VIM. “It always includes some electronics, soldering and wiring. So, most of the time it’s like converting voltage into music. That’s the idea.” Voltage, in the case of VIM at least, translates to eerie and atmospheric dance tunes, driven by myriad synth tones, heavy helpings of white noise, and sprinklings of vocoded vocals, channelling the likes of Kraftwerk, Radiohead, Bjork and the French triumvirate of Daft Punk, Justice and Air. But for the duo, it’s not just about the music.
“We care about the visual experience as much as the listening experience. We are strongly influenced by video art, VJ culture and new media art,” says Honhim. “We love Chris Cunningham, Michel Gondry and Spike Jonze’s music videos. We are trying to combine both parts to give audience a new experience in electronic music concert.”
