首先聲明,除了當年那首《Negarakuku》,我沒有聽過其他黃的歌,也幾乎沒有留意黃的新聞或動向,不過我知道他很紅,in and out都會有人提起他。除了講中文的地方,甚至在東歐國家也有人向我問起他。當然我的標準回答只是:“哦。”之外沒有評語(我原本寫comment,不過我改了,因為保持純中文比較好),因為我也不知道怎樣評。

關於黃,我要講的,也不是針對他,雖然通過各個管道的信息,他喜歡玩針對,不過我沒有確認,所以我不是針對他,只是一般觀點(我原本寫in general,不過我改了,因為保持純中文比較好)。

About the piece:
"The Games We Play" is a created by Goh Lee Kwang as a work with open platform, the piece open for various possibility, allow the participant(s) to bring in their own identity and throw in their own idea, discussion happen among the participants on the direction they are going, setting the parameter on how hard they like to push the piece / how they like to challenge the audiences.

His work often deal with political and social issues. He has been exhibited extensively in Malaysia and abroad.

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.

The River Is Our School 【School Is Cool​!​!】

In 2013 I formed a studio band called The River Is Our School (Don't ask how and why the name came from), it is basically doing loosely composed lo-fi, minimal pieces.

This more then 300 minute compilation is the band's complete studio recording between 2013 to 2016, included 1 previously never release track "School Holiday" recorded in 2013, a piece title "Angry Bird (2014)" which not in the archive but found online, a 2015 remastered version of "Hope", and collaboration project with DJ Misc. in 2016.
