THE MUSTANGS IN SOCIAL MODULATOR

The title of the  project is actually a loose translation of “The Mustangs in Social Modulator” (TMISM in short),  which some times refers to  TMISM itself.

In the exhibition about information transmission , the two artists  transform ready-made articles and images in the hope of demonstrating how information is produced, transmitted and received in a  constructed space.  “Stero”, “reality” and “modulated”, three key words of the event, imply that  lots of changes in  the current world have taken place in the directional aspects of communication and time in the diversified nodal points, and information may be taken as equal to an event itself. It also proves that  the path can add more features to the information,   the standpoints of a nodal point can rework the information,  and the weight of time, as transmission efficiency standard, is losing its importance and being put into oblivion.   As a matter of fact, we all live in a TMISM context  only that there is no appeasing and nourishing elements  one can otherwise find in a real life situation and everything is laid bare under in the program. 

Introduction to the artists:

The Mustangs in Social Modulator (TMISM in short) , an industrial visual and audio-visual project started by Xu Cheng and Huang Lei, two shanghai-based sound artists, was founded in Shanghai in 2011.  Based on antique electronic hardware, TMISM, inspired by British industrial noise music vanguards like THROBBING GRISTEL, CABARET VOLTAIRE, CHRIS &COSEY, RICHARD H. KIRK, is devoted to realizing their own audio-visual experience that can mix experiments, fantasy, atmosphere and  noises.
