Altmusic is proud to present C. Spencer Yeh as part of Altmusic's programme of exciting & innovative international musicians touring New Zealand in 2011.

Born in Taipei, Taiwan, multi-instrumentalist C. Spencer Yeh is acclaimed for his solo musical project Burning Star Core, as well as numerous other individual and collaborative artistic activities. Often favouring violin for solo performances, Yeh has a staggering discography of works under his belt. C. Spencer Yeh's diverse sound practice encompasses blissed-out meditative droneworks, virtuisic improvised ear-bleed and everything in-between. Yeh will be performing solo for the length of his Altmusic NZ tour.

"Though he’s an accomplished free improviser, Yeh doesn’t use the language of free jazz per se - instead he demonstrates an impressive ability to listen and adapt that lets him retain his meditative sound in alien contexts." - Chicago Reader

"Yeh (spews) forth nothingness like the good-boy-turned-bad from the anti-drug filmstrips that stoners now laugh at with their glazed glee." - Tiny Mix Tapes

A US resident for much of his life, C. Spencer Yeh studied film at Northwestern University in Chicago IL, represented Cincinnati OH for many years, and is currently based in Brooklyn NY. Yeh has worked alongside artists such as Tony Conrad, Mika Tajima and New Humans, Thurston Moore, Okkyung Lee, John Wiese, Nate Wooley, Paul Flaherty, Chris Corsano, Jandek and Death Beam. He has performed at events such as SONAR, Densités, All Tomorrow's Parties, and Frieze Arts Fair. Yeh has also exhibited visual and multimedia works at national and international venues including the Contemporary Arts Center in Cincinnati, the New Museum in New York City and International Film Festival Rotterdam. Yeh has made video works with artists such as Hair Police, Deerhoof, Xiu Xiu, LoVid, Beast People, and Prurient. Recent and upcoming releases include a solo CD "1975" on Intransitive and Nate Wooley's second instalment of "The Seven Storey Mountain" on Important Records (in trio with Chris Corsano).

Clinton Williams (a.k.a. Omit) is an electronic musician from New Zealand. Among several projects launched under pseudonyms he has directed Omit for over 20 years - exploring the possibilities and capacities of vintage electronic equipments to create deep psych-acoustic effects on mind. Omit's long, linear, monotonous ambient "drones" punctuated by micro accidents & events echo the works of such pioneers as Klaus Schulze, Cluster, Coil and The Halfer Trio. He has released his works via a number of labels including Corpus Hermeticum and Deep Skin.
