Goh Lee Kwang is a prolific artist who wears many hats. He is a sound artist and composer. He also runs the the label Herbal Records. His own bandcampe page features a staggering 671 releases. He also organizes the Switch On Mini Festival, which brings together local and international sound artists in the hub of Kuala Lumpur. Goh Lee Kwang states that the medium of Sound as art relies upon the response created in the listener for its existence. Without the receptivity and response from a listener, the sound ceases to exist, does not take up any space. What I have observed and enjoyed most about Lee Kwang as an artist is the invitation by himself and his artwork to participate in a relationship. The dedicated listener may perceive new worlds, strange sound textures and maybe even find within themselves new and unusual experiences.
