About the composer
Jane Wang was born in the United Kingdom and is somewhat relieved (but not proud) to be a dual citizen. She started composing in her early thirties after working as a software engineer at companies that have since disappeared. She enjoys composing/improvising for multimedia performances and her recent obsession is Moving Sound which seeks to blur the line between movement and sound. Numero Uno is my reaction to being an ugly American. This piece was constructed using manipulations of found audio clips and recorded material layered with precanned loops. Any distortion experienced is intentional.
