Martin Ng is anything but your run-of-the-mill DJ. While his training in cardiology makes him especially attuned to rhythms and beats, he chooses to go beyond these traditional turntable reference points to explore new dimensions, extending the concept of the DJ mixing console. His combined interest in art and science led him to develop sophisticated techniques for sound treatment, inspired by molecular genetics. He describes his unusual approach as the horticulture of sonic chimera. His turntables allow him to crop sound elements for further manipulation in a virtual turntable software program, where they mutate into new forms.
