陳雋然 / CHUN YIN RAINBOW CHAN 
 

Rainbow Chan is a vocalist, producer and multi-disciplinary artist who has built a reputation as one of the most innovative musicians in Australia. Driven by a DIY spirit, Chan melds catchy melodies and off-kilter beats made up of field-recordings and found sounds. Both heartbreaking and tender at once, her idiosyncratic brand of pop holds a mirror up to diasporic experiences, and also deeply personal tales of love and loss.

 

Chan’s most recent release and sophomore record “Pillar” (Independent, 2019) was feature album on community radio stations nationwide and is nominated for the Australian Music Prize. Her debut record "Spacings" (Silo Arts & Records, 2016) was feature album on community radio stations nationwide and nominated for FBi SMAC Record of the Year, and AIR Best Dance/Electronica Album. Lifted from the EP "Fabrica" (Healthy Tapes, 2017), her single "Let Me" won the FBi SMAC Award for Best Song.

 

Chan has performed at renowned venues and festivals including Sydney Opera House, Vivid, MONA FOMA, Gallery of Modern Art, Melbourne Music Week, Iceland Airwaves, National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, and Tai Kwun (Hong Kong). Additionally, her multi-arts installations have been exhibited with Firstdraft Gallery, Liquid Architecture, 4A Centre for Contemporary Asian Art and I-Project Space, Beijing.

 

Chan is a passionate mentor and has worked with MusicNSW, I.C.E Parramatta, Hack Sounds and Bunga Barrabugu programs at Sydney Conservatorium where she teaches composition and production in Contemporary Music Studies. 

 

With a flair for diverse and nuanced songwriting, Chan is currently signed to Gaga Music Publishing and has produced soundtracks for ABC web documentary, "The Glass Bedroom" (2017) and a live score for Art Gallery of NSW’s “Starburst”: Chinese Film Season (2018). She is part of the Artspace One Year Studio Program and has been selected as the Performance Space x West Kowloon Exchange resident artist in 2020.

 

 


陳雋然的創作悠遊於音樂、表演、裝置等領域。出生於香港,成長於雪梨的她,對於誤譯、流離、全球化對華人當代社會的影響等議題極為關注。她所探討的主軸周旋於真品與複製之間,探索使原創性與合適消費的西方概念複雜化的交換及慾望場域,而仿冒品、聲音、影像在全球媒體的流通散播,則為其創作的核心。山寨版商品在她的作品中變成一種複合式符號,塑造出新的神話和價值,影響當代商品生產製作的走向。

鄉愁、移民、認同感,將她所跨足的裝置和流行音樂這兩個範疇的創作緊緊串聯。近期發行的首張唱片 Spacings《之間》(Silo Arts & Records)是FBi 電台、阿得雷德電台、RTRFM社區電台的熱播唱片,並獲提名雪梨音樂藝術文化獎(年度最佳唱片)。她的電音計畫在2016年9月份透過英國唱片公司Off Out發行了單曲《Code Switch》。

她的最新專輯 , FABRICA 《巧 》( Healthy Tapes ) , 更進一步將流行音樂與零數的聲音及尖銳的歌詞掛鈎。 深入探討 愛情、權力與男女之間的複雜關係。 主打單曲 "Let Me"《讓我》 剛獲得 FBi's Sydney Music,  Arts & Culture Awards 2017 年度最佳歌曲獎。
