WEISH

@wweishh

weish is a Singaporean artist whose primary medium is live loops, creating a multi-layered landscape of sounds with a mixture of singing, vocal percussion and occasional instrumentation.

In 2013 alone—her very first year practising music—she opened for Canadian indie rock band Tegan and Sara, played at the F1 Grand Prix, as well as performed solo at TEDx Women and various Esplanade events. Over the next few years, she would go on to collaborate with many musicans, poets, visual artists, even compose for local theatre productions.

 Come 2018, weish and her music have travelled all the way to Sundance Film Festival in Utah and Sheffield Doc/Fest in the UK as part of the soundtrack of “Shirkers” by Sandi Tan. As the film went on to win Singapore’s first directing award at Sundance, as well as get acquired by Netflix, weish has been travelling with the film a fair bit this year. weish may be better known as one half of electronic duo .gif, with whom she has performed around the world — from China and Indonesia to Britain, Australia, and even Sweden. They have also been making waves in the international festival circuit, with notable sets at St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival, Java Soundsfair, Brisbane’s BIGSOUND Festival, Macau’s Hush! Beach Festival and more. Unable to contain her interests in any single genre, she also plays in experimental / prog-rock band sub:shaman, who have also done numerous shows in Japan and Malaysia. Aside from writing and performing, weish is also part of DUNCE. collective, a group of artists across different disciplines who promote and distribute local art and music in Singapore
